I saw one video clip showing the policemen using their batons shoving the ends into the mid-section of female protesters. It made me sick. These are the tactics of a police state and not a country where the right to protest is embedded in our Constitution.
This is not the first time in our history where violence was used to stop a protest. George Wallace's thugs turning the fire hoses on peaceful protesters during the Civil Rights Movement. And then there was Kent State. The bullies never learn that these tactics don't work.
Ironically, the protesters are fighting for the rights and jobs of the very policemen who are using their riot gear against them.
It is time for all of us to show solidarity with the people who are fighting for Democracy. We must let our leaders know that we strenuously object to law enforcement using force.
