“I hereby declare this an unlawful assembly”

September 30, 2009

Is this 2009 America or some Children of Men-style Hollywood movie?

Note: Pay particular attention to 1:50 to 2:20, the scariest? 30 seconds of filmed interaction between the U.S. govt. and a U.S. citizen that I’ve ever seen (probably an un-armed college student – many of the victims of police action at the Pittsburgh G-20 protests were U-Pitt students caught in the mix because of the location of Pitt dormitories). “What the fuck is wrong with you?!” was a bystander’s response (2:14 – 2:19) after witnessing it. In all likelihood there were comparable incidents not caught on film.

The summary question to ask about our government’s response to peaceful demonstrations/protests/assemblies of all stripes is likewise – what the fuck is wrong with you?!?
