Video of Boston Police Arresting Peaceful Protesters

Michael Gill has produced a definitive video of the peaceful occupation of the Greenway Park by Occupy Boston last Monday night and the rough police crackdown on nonviolent protesters that followed. Notice the police trampling the flowers that Mayor Mennino was supposedly protecting. The authorities have truly lost sight of what’s important.

“I will not tolerate civil disobedience in the city of Boston,”
