This image surfaced from the OWS raid last night. I added some text and pulled the "concerned for public safety" line from the NYPD's justification for the excessive force. PLEASE SPREAD THIS POWERFUL IMAGE:

Notice how it's often high ranking cops, like this one who get right into the mix. This is not a question of not enough training, or wrong kind of training, or rookies etc. This violence is policy and it goes right up to Bloomberg and Obama.
