So Unbelievably Horrible And Wrong: Police Officer Pepper-Sprays Non-Violent Occupy UC Davis Protestors.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

We can't even begin to tell how absolutely disgusting and infuriating it is to see this kind of flagrant abuse of power.

Watch this truly disturbing video (above) from University of California Davis yesterday, which features police not only tearing down the tents of students partaking in the Occupy movement, but also Police Lt. John Pike walking down a line of students seated on the ground in an act of NONVIOLENT civil disobedience and - we can't even believe this actually happened - SPRAYING THEM DIRECTLY IN THE FACE WITH PEPPER SPRAY, which left at least one woman hospitalized with chemical burns.

WARNING: THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO WATCH.

There's no other way to describe this as anything other than police brutality.

And our country is far worse off than we could have ever imagined if this sort of behavior is allowed and ENCOURAGED by our government.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those young people who bravely and unrelentingly faced this abuse, and everyone who stood by, documented it, and said what we wish we had been there to say ourselves:

SHAME ON YOU.

Marine Takes On 30 Cops At Occupy Wall Street - And WINS!

Filed under: Inspiration

This is absolutely incredible!

In light of the NYPD police brutality that has been going on with protestors at the Occupy Wall Street movement, a 24-year-old Marine veteran, already having completed two tours in Iraq, named Sgt. Shemar Thomas literally took on about 30 cops yesterday to chastize the unwarranted behavior on unarmed citizens!

Check it out (above)! It's EPIC!

And we have to say, pretty badass and inspiring!

We wish more politicians had this kind of experience and insight into the public!

Seattle Police Guild's President Defends Officer Punching 17 Year Old Girl In The Face!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersYouTube

Absolutely deplorable.

There's been a considerable - and we think justifiable - amount of backlash regarding this cell phone video (above) taken that shows a Seattle police officer punching a 17-year-old girl in the face after she and another were stopped for jaywalking.

The officer's disgusting act of police brutality has thrown him under review, but the President of Seattle Police Officer's Guild has made it clear that he defends the monster:

[Officers Guild President] Rich O'Neil told KCPQ-TV that punching her in the face was an appropriate use of force as the officer [Ian P. Walsh] struggled with two women and a crowd formed. O'Neil says it's wrong to call the punch police brutality or racist.

Watch the video above and tell us, do you think that punch was an 'appropriate use of force?'

Those men should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. Disgusting.
