Cops oppose justice

Published Mar 16, 2012 10:32 PM

A member of Occupy Oakland held a sign highlighting the racism of the U.S. “justice system” as part of the Occupy Education rally at the California Capitol building in Sacramento. Capitol police were so incensed by his sign that they surrounded him with riot cops and mounted police after the morning rally was over and most demonstrators had gone inside to occupy the building. The cops claimed he couldn’t hold his sign without a permit on the Capitol grounds once the permitted rally was over. Several other people were still holding signs, but he was the only one police threatened and harassed. When some demonstrators came to his support, the government unleashed even more riot police.
