While I was surfing blogs looking for opinions and comments on the NATO protest this past weekend, I landed on Huffington Post (Chicago). One of the commenters posted a link to a photo. The link, accompanied by rebuttal comments to another poster describes how there WAS excessive force used by the CPD. Here's the photo.
|What a fascist pig.|
So I ask you, are pictures worth a Thousand words. If you answered yes, you would be incorrect. The commenter got this photo off of The Chicago Tribune website. Here's what the commenter left out. The photo's are from the Tribune, The captions are from yours truly.
|Police officer in riot gear has his helmet knocked off by a protester.|
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: This is considered assault
|The officer grabs the perpetrator as he fends of advancing protesters.|
The officer tries to remove the perp in order to place her under arrest. NOTICE: Do you see the retard with the "Will Work For Weed" T-Shirt on? do you think he is a fine representative of our First Amendment rights?
As the perpetrator resists arrest, the officer looks up at another protester. I'm sure the protester was commending the officer on a job well done.
The arresting officer sees a protester raising a stick in strike position. He let's go of the perpetrator in order to defend himself.
But it's too late. The officer is struck with the stick.
The officer turns around to assist in the pandemonium that is starting. The original assailant looks like she is getting away. The "Will Work For Weed" kid is offering kind words of advice. But most notably in this picture, do you notice a second protester winding up with a heavier piece of wood?
Well, you were not the only one. You may notice our resident "Fascist Pig" on the right. I think he sees the assault about to take place as well.
WELCOME TO CHICAGO MOTHERFUCKER!
So in conclusion, if you come to Chicago and strike a police officer, you should pray that you ONLY receive a punch to the face. Assaulting an officer is a serious crime. You thought you had a hard time finding a job before? Good luck now asshole.
