SFPD Breaks Down Automatic Rifle @ MayDay Occupation-Negotiator?
San Francisco, CA - 888 Turk Street SF Occupy Commune - SFPD Officer shown breaking down an Automatic, Live Fire Rifle. Other officers tried to block the videographers view to hide the deployment and 'breaking down' of the lethal weapon.
Immediately upon seeing the lethal weapon, the crowd shouted warnings and demanded the use of a Negotiator which were ignored by the Officers, intent on using lethal force weapons. They used scores of expensive officers to handle one or two agitators who were not supported by the crowd, residents or the occupiers and squatters.
99% of whom all supported the Commune and did tours with families to make sure no weapons or damage had been done, and to check out the reasons why that empty space should be taken to meet the unmet needs of hundreds of local residents. Many of whom are recently homeless, jobless, on probation, discharged from military service, who need safe spaces to live, be and freely associate with others in the same depressed situation to figure out how to get justice for us all.
This is at a time when we have record people in bloated prisons for non-violent, cannabis related crimes; record homelessness; foreclosures; organized corporate mortgage and finance fraud; and trillions lost in illegal wars, while more than half of our US Children, go hungry ?!!
Our nation was once Ranked #17 in the Worldwide Freedom of Press lists; and now we are at #47, behind South Africa who's nation is at #42. Iceland, Norway and other gentle, wiser nations have been in the top ten ever since 2003, when the list was first started.
Lack of Free Press means more media controls which we reject. We must be free to rebuild our communities, by ourselves if necessary, for the sake of our very survival. The lack of support and violent, coordinated bad acts by police traitors are obstructing our ability to exercise our rights under our Constitutions and common law which cannot stand.
