WTF has this country come to?

84-Year-Old Woman Becomes the Pepper-Sprayed Face of Occupy Seattle - National - The Atlantic Wire

Make this picture black and white and you'd expect to see swastikas in the background. The more I see stuff like this, the less faith I have that this country is salvageable.

I'm pretty sure those students don't represent a threat to the police officers in this picture. How are they justifying the use of pepper spray? I'm pretty sure this is the use of terrorism.

They do it because they CAN. Why do you think they enrolled in the police in the first place? I would be ashamed to be one of those cops, or related to them. The violent reactions in those cops are so regular, so unprovoked and so asymmetrical that they cannot be "by chance" those guys really enjoy pepper spray people in the face. They probably can't wait to have a protest so they can finally dress up like the fascist thugs they are and do whatever they like.

this happened in Genova (Italy) at the G8 in 2001

I'm really surprised this is starting now. I thought that they would just wait out the protesters until winter in the hopes that they would leave. I mean I live in NY and have gone to NYC and the people there freak out and go buy a full NorthFace snow suit when it's 30 and a half a foot drops.

Its called sadism. And its just wrong.

But this will not stop the protests only intensify them around the world.
