    Experts: "Occupy" video shows excessive force - CBS News


    Earlier in the day, the Oakland Tribune reported Scott Campbell said police shot him with a rubber bullet or beanbag while he was videotaping a standoff between authorities and demonstrators following a "general strike" last week. In the video (Warning: Contains language that may be offensive to some people), viewers can clearly hear Campbell asking police officers if it was okay to film at least three times. In response, one officer fired a non-lethal projectile weapon at him. Experts in police use of force say it appears the volley that hit Campbell was unprovoked and inappropriate.

    And on goes the insanity from the right.


    The Oakland police have a long history of abusing protestors.


    You think its because they have a union?

    From the article, last paragraph.

    Campbell, who identifies himself as an anarchist, said he took video of the confrontation that occurred early Nov. 3 because he wanted to document any instances of excessive force, but did not imagine that he would be a target.

    Odd, no police officers from any of the departments involved have been charged or reprimanded for any brutality as of yet. Not that I have heard anyway. And the word of an anarchist, one of those who want to riot is not worth consideration. Especially that anarchist.

    TM, why do you hate police officers? Why do you hate the middle class and Asian people?

    What of the protestors that smashed their way into a private residence, in foreclosure, and destroyed it?

    Idiots like these and the one I posted need to be thumped on the head harder than others to get through to them
