Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    ACLU files lawsuits against DC for police brutality

    From the DC Indymedia Centre: Inauguration Protesters Sue DC for Police Brutality

    Three lawsuits were filed late last week by the American Civil Liberties Union against the District of Columbia and Metropolitan Police Department officers. The lawsuits allege police made false arrests and indiscriminately used pepper spray against protesters in multiple incidents during the 2005 Presidential Inauguration.
    I remember the reports at the time of the protests, and I would challenge anyone who stated that these false arrests and pepper spraying were not typical of the type of fascistic clamping down on dissent which happens every day in the US under Bush. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
