Why Do WE Put Up With Police Brutality? (english)
19 Oct 2003
After watching the cops busting heads and throwing people to the ground. You have to ask yourself this question. Why does the United States tolerate this immoral and unjust act of cruelty?
We have laws for animals and spouses. Yet, we let the scumbag police do what ever they want to do? NO. Time for new laws. Laws that will put these public servants in jail for many years.
Let's face it. These people are NOT above the law. Time to send ALL of them a message.
I'm sending my state rep and senator a letter. I'm pissed off watching this!
Law Unto Themselves (english)
19 Oct 2003
Based on what you told me over the phone, it seems that the police in large part provoked the riot. They could have just taken out the few troublemakers, but they turned innocent people into "criminals" and enraged them by their martial law mentality directed at everyone. I've seen this even at our peace rally in Augusta, Maine last year. I can understand their need to protect themselves, but when the cops start running motorcycles through crowds and waving billy clubs merely to intimidate, and arresting people "for not listening" they've gone over the line. Way over.

i was there the night that this happened, and my freind works for the redsox as a vendor (penuts, hot dogs) and the the cops started to beat the shit out of him while he kept saying "im just tring to go home, i work for the redsox" and showing them his ID. this movie portrays pretty fucking well what happened, but the soundtrack could be better
