This is a perspective on the people's rights and far too often our own extreme ignorance. Part of the 99%, the pregnant woman in recent headlines has suffered a miscarriage. Nineteen year old Jennifer Fox, by a kick to her stomach she received from a police officer along with an overwhelming amount pepper spray is to blame according to her physician.

said, "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."
No matter how the misuse of mace may be justified, it is clearly against what we believe in America, its misuse is paramount to torture. When a citizen misuses mace it is acknowledged as a crime so when any division of law enforcement misuses it, it is still a crime and a very blatant one at that. Ignorance is bliss; even among those who should most know better.
Apparently human rights have no meaning to some of those charged with protecting the public. America has become a dictatorship right in front of us. The only safe form of government is one that is in the hands of all the populace and an enlightened populace of all the people. As I recall Jefferson proposed making a new government in replacement of the old one whenever it became necessary periodically.
Higher moral character in the police who should refuse to take away the Constitutional rights of the people must be required. From those who require much, much is required; and some are shirking their real duty to the American people. Patriotism is not walking in lock step, it is making a country acceptable to all the people. We are not the corporations' nor the governments' private possessions. It is they who belong to us.
The police seemingly are more worried about tomorrow's paycheck while busily turning a democratic republic into a police state. We have a lot more police than most other countries and more prisons, some of the deadliest, and a prison population of over two million, more and than all countries in the world. Our country has turned into an occult dictatorship before our very eyes. Or perhaps they too are corrupted by unmitigatable desire for power and control over others.
