"The people" the cops with work for are the US are corporations. Except corporations have more rights than citizens...

To serve and protect (elite interests).

The police force was originally created from goon squids who were paid to brutalise union organizers.

When the unions were smashed, the corporatists didn't want to fire the goons (and piss then off), so they devised a way to get the taxpayer to foot the bill.

This would be common knowledge, if schools weren't designed to whitewash history.

All very true.

The drug war helps fuel and "justify" this monopoly on violence.

Isn't there a full video of this? Can we see it?

Edit: Found the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WO4406KJQMc

They surrounded the police and refused to let them pass, the police warned them repeatedly and they persisted. They got pepper sprayed and arrested.

How did you manage to come up with that small spinet of video that shows just enough to pass the impression that it was completely unprovoked and out of nowhere? Good thing this is saidit and not reddit where it's easier to hide inconvenient truths.

You're suggesting that they peacefully sat on the ground, and the police were unable to get by their peaceful protest?

Are you living and commenting from Israel?
The reason that I ask, is Israel is the only place that I am aware of where people are so brainwashed that they can manufacturer this type of lunatic narrative.

Protesting doesn't give u an exemption from respecting other people's rights, they had the police surrounded and they were preventing from leaving. Enforcing the law is preferably done by asking people to comply, when people don't police have to use force.

Perhaps u should look at the mirror. If u see something and your mind immediately creates a series of unfounded associations I'd say there's something wrong with your thought process.

Pepper spraying peacefully protesting students is the action of a corrupt police state.

Says the lunatic who supports police violence against peaceful protestors.

We both know it's true. ;-)

You wanted the video. I gave it to you.

I showed you how: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cop+pepper+sprays+students

Don't put this on me.

"Shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!"

I think you wanted the longer version all along but didn't ask.

The longer version only shows more police brutality against peaceful non-resistant people.

They didn't surround the police.

The police in their riot gear refused to walk through an unarmed, peaceful protest, with many sitting people.

They were hardly a threat if any.

"You can go! You can go! You can go!"
