yeah, I noticed there has been more stuff lately on PBS and such about the civil rights era and the abuses that happened then. I've always thought of the police and other entities as working for the people. Its so shocking to me to see video of officers beating little old black ladies in the streets and then to see footage of Seattle's protests.
I think this is a really important video for people to watch (though if you are already familiar with how this happens, I guess it could be overload), especially if they are involved in activist or protest activities. At least so they can see the possibilities of what could be used against them.
