    Police beat war veterans in assault on Occupy Boston

    A new chapter in the annals of American police brutality has been written, as two Vietnam war veterans who joined Occupy Boston protests suffered injuries after being beaten by police and arrested along with some 50 other demonstrators.After barring protesters from occupying a freshly-planted greenway near their official encampment at Dewey Square, police pulled down the demonstrators’ tents and started confiscating their property.

    So, the cops are now beating up war veterans. This is really disgusting and just goes to show the heartlessness of the cops that did this horrendous act.




    EDIT: Here is the video of the incident

    O.M.G.

    It's so amusing to hear someone call this a "horrendous act." You don't know the meaning of the word.

    Demonstrating? Obey the police. Don't obey the police? Get knocked down. Get roughed up. Get arrested. The guy was a Viet Nam vet, and he says he doesn't trust the police anymore. Give me a break.

    Those cops are lucky they didn't try it on OIF/OEF vets, but I suspect that these badge wearing henchmen are cowards, since they beat up old men.

    The main question to be asked here, however, is what the **** happened to this:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    Or does the United States Constitution apply to everyone except Boston police? Don't know about anyone else, but I would call that domestic terrorism.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It'd be nice to have video of the incident before we rush to any judgments about both the protesters and the police...

    That was funny as hell. I hope we get a chance to see more people violating the law getting their ass kicked.

    Those people were duly warned and told to move on, they didn't, they were manhandled when they made aggressive moves on the uniformed police.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    Looks like they followed protocol to the letter. There is absolutely nothing the protesters can get angry about.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Its not just scumbag neocons, there are plenty of badge licking pond scum liberals too (as long as their guy is in power of course).
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    No they were not. Read the story. They were told to assemble at area A because area B had new sod. They went to area B and would not leave.

    Funny how liberals only trot out the Constitution when it suits them. The rest of the time it is an antiquated document written by people that couldn't have possibly known what today's issues would be.
