Yes, I saw the footage of occupy Milan. There's a lot of protests planned tomorrow here and abroad, too many to list. They backed down on using Wisconsin tactics to break up the NY protest, but doubled down on police brutality, including running someone over, more beat downs and arrests. The man they ran over was a lawyer's guild observer. Footage shows the police man parked on his legs while he writhes in pain. Despite his bloody face and having to go to the hospital, police are claiming he's faking it. He is under arrest, of course, and being denied access to his lawyer. Of course. After all, being an innocent observer is a much greater threat to public safety than a police officer running innocent observers over and refusing to move his bike while he is trapped. I look forward to the lawsuit. In other police assholery news, they arrested Bo Diddly's son for being in Bo Diddly Plaza in Gainsville.
