I am curious if anyone has tried to organize a line of communication with the police. I'm not talking about shouting of chanting at them, but rather creating an information pamphlet that discusses why we are protesting, what we hope to change, and how it would benefit the cops. If we distributed something like that in the police stations, where they could read it on their own time, I think it could be effective. How powerful would our message become if off-duty officers joined in the discussions at Zuccotti Park? And how could the police justify beating their own officers for sitting in the streets? Has anything like this been tried yet?
