I don't know - the cops looked pretty peaceful to me. I like what you are doing with the medium but I think you need to work in a more collaborative way with other videographers. Every video by you I see has a lot of passion but it's always after the arrest happens, not what led up to it. It's hard for me to get excited over someone getting cuffed without any context to it. Trust me - I agree with your sentiments but I also want to see the full picture.

There were no batons swinging at people randomly, no mass arrests for association, and no other belligerent behavior on your video. I am sure all odf this happened, but we want to see it!

Keep up the good work.

i was arrested in this my gf was beaten with a baton , her brother was beaten by the cops , held down cuffed and then wasnt allowed water. my gf has atleast 3 bruises , this was all because he was trying to get her out of the circle. we are still pulling people out of jail. we've lost a few people dan corbet my best friend got out but he hasnt come back so far we have all of his stuff and we hope he is doing fine.

i was at this protest and i was one of 24 to be arrested. the young man who is on th eground getting cuffed is my older brother peter, he wouldnt have gotten arrestd if he didnt try to get me out of the encirclement. when he was arrested, he got caught with two knives he only had on him. and he is now being charged with assault and battery for no reason.
this is surely a day in history in my book, and i hope people really appreciate what people like my brother and everyone else at the protest stand up for. my bf got arrested with me and we both got let off. but the cops really were brutal! i hope everyone realizes that. this video does not explain nearly enough. the cops used accesive force on at least my brother and i , i know for a fucking fact.

I really like yer blog and this video really was good. too bad you didn't get the part where the police were pushing these two people around who were trying to get out of the circle. I'm glad that I got out the circle. Anyway, I really like yer blog and keep it up.
