Video - Is the United States a Police State?

    


Video - Is The United States a Police State by Paklert Press

 


Our police agencies have figured out how to accomplish police state repression in a "softer," more sophisticated manner.

 

Look at the video in the September 26 report by Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC on what he describes as a "violent burst of chaos" caused by armed "troublemakers" from the New York Police Department.

 

It was a peaceful demonstration against Wall Street greed. At least it started out that way. All evidence suggests it was, then, sent careening into chaos by the police strong-arming of young protesters who had done nothing but express their views in public.

No, Police in the United States are just doing their duty
