that man that the cop pushed had every right to get up and punch him in the face. He was just talking and the cop used force retaliation does stand up in court people...
That girl bent over like she wanted some dick from that cop.

Welcome to America
Cops: Too much power, too little education.
Visualize... cops with bullets passing through their brains.
Good little flag sucker . Is that what you would say if they are kicking in your teeth ? "You were just doing your job. No one has a right to voice their opinion Mr Officer, may I have another?" I think you need to read your 1st amendment .

regardless of the location, the right to protest wall street is as important to the us as any gun law. It takes all sorts. The cop should not be touching dudes camera or assulting people for excercizing their democratic right to protest. police brutality seems to be at peak levels... oh wait. this is not a democracy
Police did there job, no one has the right to protest in city streets and the police are allowed to use as much force as needed to clear the streets. When the guy was told to back up he failed to comply and those got pushed hard by police knocking him over. Its his fault for not following a lawful command from police. Also he could have been charged for interference with a police officer.
