If this does not get your blood boiling and make you want to fire these eople I dont know what will, and that goes for everyone, both left and right, this should scare the shit out of you, and if it does not, then you are just as complicit as the rest of these people are.

    This is a bill the president threatens to veto and has strong opposition from his senior advisers. I think you missed that part.

    I find this odd of course because Newt said he would do just this in his debate where he "owned" Ron Paul... Newt said he would expand on the patriot act as all Americans will be in dangers for the rest of our lives.

    This is why people like Newt not only have by far the most dangerous foreign policy, they also have the most dangerous war policy as they include the US as a battleground..

    A first person account of arrest by LAPD:

    "I was arrested at about 1 a.m. Wednesday morning with 291 other people at Occupy LA. I was sitting in City Hall Park with a pillow, a blanket, and a copy of Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Being Peace” when 1,400 heavily-armed LAPD officers in paramilitary SWAT gear streamed in..."

    "The LAPD officers encircled us, weapons drawn, while we chanted 'We Are Peaceful' and 'We Are Nonviolent' and 'Join Us....'”

    "When the LAPD finally began arresting those of us interlocked around the symbolic tent, we were all ordered by the LAPD to unlink from each other (in order to facilitate the arrests).

    "Each seated, nonviolent protester beside me who refused to cooperate by unlinking his arms had the following done to him: an LAPD officer would forcibly extend the protestor’s legs, grab his left foot, twist it all the way around and then stomp his boot on the insole, pinning the protestor’s left foot to the pavement, twisted backwards.

    "Then the LAPD officer would grab the protestor’s right foot and twist it all the way the other direction until the non-violent protestor, in incredible agony, would shriek in pain and unlink from his neighbor."

    "It was horrible to watch, and apparently designed to terrorize the rest of us. At least I was sufficiently terrorized. I unlinked my arms voluntarily and informed the LAPD officers that I would go peacefully and cooperatively. I stood as instructed, and then I had my arms wrenched behind my back, and an officer hyperextended my wrists into my inner arms.

    "It was super violent, it hurt really really bad, and he was doing it on purpose. When I involuntarily recoiled from the pain, the LAPD officer threw me face-first to the pavement. He had my hands behind my back, so I landed right on my face.

    "The officer dropped with his knee on my back and ground my face into the pavement. It really, really hurt and my face started bleeding and I was very scared. I begged for mercy and I promised that I was honestly not resisting and would not resist.

    "My hands were then zipcuffed very tightly behind my back, where they turned blue. I am now suffering nerve damage in my right thumb and palm."

    The author of this account and his non-violent accomplices then spent seven hours kneeling on cold concrete through out the night before being processed into Parker Center.

    If you think they won't treat non-violent Tea Party protestors in the same way, please wake up before it's too late.
