Occupy Wall Street Movement Protester Being Pepper Sprayed
Non-violet Occupy Wall Street protesters being pepper sprayed at UC Davis in Sacramento California. I was watching this on the news I could not believe the one officer, he was walking back a forth like he was spraying a bunch of weeds. All they were doing was sitting on the side walk with their arms locked not confrontational, the amount of pepper spray he was using was excessive. If they were in the officer face screaming, hollering and advancing toward the officer then I could see using pepper spray. This is happening in other cities all over the United States in Seattle Washington an 84 year old woman and a pregnant woman were pepper sprayed. In New York City Occupy Wall Street protesters were pepper sprayed by police. Although in Oakland California the Occupy encampment was disbanded peacefully two times by police, the police vowed it won’t rise again. What if it does? Are the people of Oakland going to be pepper sprayed, like in Sacramento, New York City and Seattle, Washington? The Occupied movement is going strong and I don’t see it going away any time soon. I think if the police keep pepper spraying non-violet protesters the people are going to start fighting back, things will get ugly and one wants that.
