    American Revoultion

    The government is trying to take our rights of freedom on the internet. They ignore our cries for fair taxing. Police brutality is happening everyday, and the government will do nothing to stop it. Is it time for a Revolution in America?

    Spamming videos and crying "revolution" on the internet wont do anything. Instead, why don't you go out and hand out literature about your views and why they are correct. To answer your question, no. I don't think a series of clips of out of context situations that involve police using force will convince me that America is some sort of fascist, authoritarian state.

    What do you propose the police to do? Break the rules because of personal beliefs? When you take the oath to be a policeman, you promised to uphold the law.

    The law does not tell them to beat people who are already unconscious. It does not tell them to keep shooting someone that they've already killed?

    The actions of a few do not reflect the beliefs of a whole.

    If they get all of the police brutality on video that I posted, and thousands of other videos think about what the police do when there aren't people there to record. Everything that police have done on camera they've done to someone else where there wasn't any cameras.

    So if X=Y, and X=Z, then Y=Z? That's not true.

    You're statement is assuming every policeman is a sadistic person.

    I'm not saying that. I'm saying that police brutality is out there and the government is doing nothing about it. Are you trying to say that what the police did in the first video is right?

    Nowadays people live on the Internet. We communicate through it and we also socialize through it. However, the basis of revolutions remain. Violence. The Internet admits verbal violence, but that's not enough to revolt. No revolution in History has ever been clean from blood.

    I have two viewpoints on this. I find the way the police conducted themselves inappropriate. However, these protesters did not have permits to protest. They were disrupting traffic and were loitering.

    I do agree with you on that last part. These Occupy protests have gone too far, and are disruptive. But, I do not like the way the police handled the situation. The man was on the ground, not resisting at all, and the police kept tazing him.
