Does it look like I can see his badge? What are you a moron. I am eating pavement. The only thing I remember is hearing "this is payback, bitch."

this series of photos is from this afternoon, during which time someone with the moniker "Deep Throat" was posting comments to this site. The photo is from a series by AP Photog Dave Martin. While the police violence is evident in the pictures, I doubt the veracity of the comment Mr. Throat attributes to the officer.

Do Feds or any type of law "officer" have to identify themselves when asked? Even online?
Re: Look what they did to me
29 Jul 2004
yes Deb I do according article 15 of Federal regulatons regarding law enforement identification. So yes I'm a cop
Re: Look what they did to me

Re: my identidy if you believe
29 Jul 2004
no i'm not a cop. i am with the philly imc. and i have been on the federal payroll back when iwas a paid intern for various democratic congressmembers & also a postal clerk.

what difference have i made? plenty in various arenas. but the comments on this list seem full of trolls.

I don't know about Mike but a quick review of other recent comments shows that Deep Throat is definitely someone who thinks s/he is very very funny. and was not downtown.
Re: Look what they did to me
29 Jul 2004
Deep Throat is a fucking troll folks - look at his other posts.

Also, why is it that every fucking idiot on here thinks anyone who trolls this site is a Fed ?? Is this your first day on the Internet? Trolls are everywhere folks, plain and simple

Don't feed the trolls.

No, they are a bunch of senior citizens in Florida. Why else would they be typing in the middle of a workday, unless they're students off for the summer. Why do you think Limbaugh has so many listeners at 12-3pm

When you plan on getting arrested, you aren't really getting harassed, now are you?
Re: Look what they did to me
29 Jul 2004
or you are like me, going from a nice full time position only to get laid off under the bush economy & are now a struggling freelance in a home office.
Re: Look what they did to me
29 Jul 2004
What are you guyz gonna do when Bush gets re-Elected. The turn out in Boston shows just how pathetic the far left really is...So go protest in NYC, The COPS there are not as friendly(i.e. lottsa wood shampoos)..FOUR MORE YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..."W" ROX !!!!!!!

PS: Make your sure your mommies give your clothes the yearly washing they need, so you will look "good" in NYC...All hail the trust-fund babies..sorry, I mean "arnarchists".

"Do Feds or any type of law "officer" have to identify themselves when asked? Even online?"

The prisons are full of people who thought undercover narcotics officers had to answer that question honestly.
Re: Look what they did to me
29 Jul 2004
I"m glad the turn out of the "far left" was low, because they do nothing to help get Bush of office.

The LaRouche kids have a really high number of trust-fundamentalists too.

I'm not saying I disagree with protesting, it is a right and it should be protected. People should have the right to protest and make their voices heard. But for once everybody should realize that they need to take one for the team and do something good for the country.

Of course you didn't deserve treatment. Ask yourself, what made the police so evil to carryout atrocities against you? What in there past had made them feel like they had a right to use inappropriate force against you (a peace loving protestor)? Maybe the cops here in the photo were abused as children, persecuted because of who they are or where on some medication that excuses their behavior?

The cops are people just like anyone else. They try to do the job the best way possible. As for the rationals discussed above, those where all used as defenses in cases where cops where murdered on duty.

Maybe, Just maybe the cops did the right thing in restraining you like the picture depicts. Why were you chosed out of all of the protestors? Did you fail to obey lawfull orders given by the cops? Did you resist in the least bit when approached by the cops?

It appears to me from studying the picture that the police are using force against you withing police policy and training. Your motivations appear more exhibitionist than true believer. More like XXX "deep throat" than Watergate's "deep throat".

If you were abused by the officers you should file a complaint with the Internal affairs division. Providing the photo and essential details of the incident , who , what , why , when ,where etc. You are presumed to be innocent even when circumstances result in arrest. your best ally is the photographer,but it works both ways.

Re: Look what they did to me

Hey Me...You're a John Birch loving, right-wing moron. You know why? You DON'T believe in FREEDOM OF SPEECH. You'd be the first to shoot your mouth off...in slander of course...about race and women. You're a bigot and a undereducated, police loving idiot. People like you deserve George W. Bush. An IDIOT VOTING FOR AN IDIOT!
Those police? Sorry excuse for PUBLIC SERVANTS! Ironic, how they can't seem to bust all the organized crime around Boston and elsewhere!
