Q13 has the video here:
Notice the camera being passed off to other protestors who try to get away with the footage, and watch the abject panic on the face of the “officers” as they try to tackle whoever has the camera. It was beautiful to watch one officer chase a protestor into the middle of a busy street. Clearly this was done to preserve the safety of the citizens of Seattle.
These federal officers have seen what happens when footage of police brutality gets leaked to the public, and they want to stop this flow of information at the source.
Of course, they are succeeding.
When you have weapons, handcuffs, and armed backup … you have the power to stop people from documenting your abusive actions.
My guess is that the protestors will be charged with a vague crime such as “resisting arrest”, “disobeying orders”, “disorderly conduct”, or some other police state charge.
Mark my words, going forward, this will be a standard charge against those who dare record the abuse of officers.
Thank God Bin Laden was killed so that we Americans can return to enjoying our freedoms.
Update: As it turns out, they were not cops at all. They were civilians in uniforms. Federal officers eventually arrived, and cited the protestor for a non-crime. This could get interesting.
