STFU, Conservatives

Big Warning: The video linked above can be a bit disturbing

eugeniedefranval submitted: Peaceful female protesters pepper sprayed for asking police officers why.

Protest organizers estimated that about 85 people had been arrested and that about five were struck with pepper spray. Among those was Chelsea Elliott, 25, who said that she was sprayed after shouting “Why are you doing that?” as an officer arrested a protester at East 12th Street.

"I was on the ground sobbing and couldn’t breathe," she said. The ongoing protests, against a financial system that participants say favors the rich and powerful over ordinary citizens, started last Saturday, and were coordinated by a New York group called the General Assembly.

Wow, that is some terrifying stuff. Someone is going to have to explain for what has gone down out there. Today we’re all left with the same question when faced with this disgusting perversion of justice “Why?”
