Trigger Warning: outside the DNC, a police officer shoved a CodePink protester to the ground while yelling in her face “Back it up, bitch.” When she then tried to talk about the treatment to reporters, the officer grabbed her by the arm and violently pulled her away. Then he arrested her.
Why? Because police arrested another protester, and the woman, Alicia Forrest, was one of numerous people trying to figure out where he was being taken. Who knew that was against the law?
The video is below. A warning: the comments at the YouTube page are misogynistic and vile. I don’t recommend them.
I am so fucking sick of this macho power-trip, police brutality bullshit.
