(Lucas: A lot of video evidence can be seen in the news and mainstream media of unprovoked and unnecessary action of law enforcement as well as false arrests, misconducting officers, use of unlawful excessive force. Also the nozzlement and the actions to make peaceful protests impossible by disruption are structural.
The removing encampments, using legislation to stop protests like in Canada or by preventing or redirecting protests to places they can control protests or even relaying protests out of cities and or prohibit protests for obscure reasons should make some bells ring. Think about your unalienable rights to stand up for your rights and the constitution that gives you the right to protest unharmed and free. The police state is already on its way but you still have to see it it seems. When do 1.000.000 and more go protest in the streets like in Mexico. They will hear about it sooner or later and it will make some very big noise. Make a statement people to say No to your government, governors, mayors, your parliaments and congress and the law enforcement agencies that prevent you to say IT IS ENOUGH and to say WE ARE THE PEOPLE and have the power not you. This is all your freedom we are talking about here . Those protesting already peacefully lead you the way. You all need to see in peaceful protests and civil disobedience lies the key to get those denying your rights and freedom as sovereign beings to their knees. It can be done and has to be done. You see how chalk protests get them upset!)
Walking sidewalks is hurting…who???? Absolutely no one, yet these kids are treated like criminals while the bankster’s and CEO’s trans-global corporations run free to destroy the planet and the lives of billions of people through war, poverty, famine and theft.

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police clashed with scores of demonstrators Thursday evening downtown near ArtWalk LA, resulting in several arrests and injured officers.
A citywide tactical alert was issued after 9 p.m. Thursday after Los Angeles police officers in riot gear were pelted with rocks and bottles by protestors near 5th and Spring streets.
Officials say four officers suffered minor injuries including a female officer who suffered a concussion.
At least some of the protestors were associated with the Occupy LA movement which promoted Chalk Walk on their twitter page and may have organized “Free Chalk For Free Speech.”
According to posts on the @OccupyLA Twitter account, the incident began after police confronted people drawing on the sidewalks with chalk.
Amanda Burden, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, spoke to one witness on the ground. He said “people were just drawing on the ground. And then riot police moved in. A girl was drawing hopscotch. A guy next to her wrote ‘I want peace.’ The next thing, they started arresting people. Everything was calm before the riot police showed up.”]
