A journalist recounts his violent arrest by the NYPD - apparently for listening to the "People's Gong" during the Occupy anniversary celebrations - and his subsequent experience in custody.

In the past, they might have gotten away with the creation of the police state that has almost been completely installed, but thank Heaven we are in 2012 and every single thing is seen by us all and this will not be allowed to go on for long. There is still enough people who are not seeing the upside down version of truth, and they are not going to stand for this kind of injustice much longer.
The people, thats us, the 99%, are done with the neo-con agenda, which is a sociopathic, antisocial agenda, garnering power for the elite while enslaving the rest. It won't be happening, and if they keep trying, it will only make the case clearer for humanity to change the System once and for all.
Calling all attorneys, advocates for peace and justice and the American way: please take this on! Lets each do our part to end the insanity and put the real criminals away so we can re-create the world in the image of peace, cooperation and justice for all.

There is a site for reporting instances of police brutality and for posting videos of assaults: copblock.org

Send a Green Star to Camila K.
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Camila because you have done so within the last week.

This is exactly what a GOP/tea/corporate run state would look like. Vote all of those types out of office if you really want to protect your rights.

Bloomberg has an army of thugs paid for with the tax dollars of citizen who blindly obey him and do his bidding. They are not police as they do not follow the law. The white shirts should be issued brown shirts and Bloomberg should grow a mustache! Somebody needs to go in and clean up the PD and bring charges to those who are breaking the law. Bloomberg needs to be recalled, he is not representing those he is supposed to serve, like Romney the only ones who are worth serving are the wealthy and the rest of us need to be ignored and taken care of....by bullying us, throwing us in prison and taking as much away from us as they possibly can. Their only goal is to crush us while they and their friends gain more for themselves.
