Police Bludgeon Peaceful Occupy UC Berkeley Protesters with Batons

This is just the latest in a series of criminal acts of unprovoked police violence against peaceful Occupy protesters. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.

Journalists from across the spectrum have documented the militarization of police forces in the United States, including CNN, Huffington Post, Forbes, Esquire, The Atlantic, Salon, and the Cato Institute.


But the militarization of police started long before 9/11 … in the 1980s.
