    Your heading is misleading. Just from that video theres no way to tell if the police response to disperse this crowd was excessive. Did the protestors have a permit? BTW what were they protesting?

    it was really important to the security of the USA for the police to keep that filthy piece of parking lot free of protesters!

    :rolleyes:

    everyone makes mistakes at their jobs, when cops make mistakes it is really galling.

    Show me the flag burners. Show me the spitters. Show me the rock throwers.
    Show them to me. These folks were fprotesting for the troops to stay home. REAL support for the troops.

    [QUOTE]Caitlin Esworthy: I think there were a number of goals set out during the two weeks of protests, some articulated and some unspoken. Most attainably, [B]we aimed to show our support by voicing our desire to see that the 4 th Stryker Brigade 2 nd Division remains home and to demonstrate non-violently our opposition to the war in Iraq [/B] . Ultimately though, we would like to end the occupation and bring our troops home, and we hope that our actions contribute to the success of the anti-war movement. [/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE][B]Three arrested at Port of Tacoma during anti-war demonstration[/B]

    Police arrested three anti-war demonstrators at the Port of Tacoma during overnight protests against the shipment of military vehicles to Iraq.


    About 200 people gathered Friday evening at the port, where several nights of protests have been staged against the shipment of vehicles and equipment for deployment of the Army's 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division from nearby Fort Lewis.

    A 32-year-old Gig Harbor man was arrested at 9:30 p.m. for obstructing police when he took his backpack into a protest area, said Gretchen Ellis, a Tacoma police spokeswoman. Authorities had prohibited backpacks in the area for security reasons.

    [B]Around 11:30 p.m., demonstrators began climbing a fence to enter private property and police used pepper spray to stop them, Ellis said.[/B]

    [B]The crowd had dwindled to around 35 by 2:30 a.m. Saturday when some protesters threw wooden road barriers onto the street and sat in the roadway, Ellis said. Police launched tear gas at the crowd when people refused orders to leave.[/B]

    [B]A second person, a 20-year-old Tacoma man, was arrested for obstruction and a 19-year-old Olympia man was arrested for third-degree assault of a police officer, Ellis said. [/B]

    Anti-war demonstrations have been held at the port since last Saturday, with four protesters arrested earlier this week.

    The 4th Brigade is scheduled to leave for Iraq in April, a month early. On Monday, a deployment ceremony for the unit is planned at Fort Lewis.

    [QUOTE][B]Five arrested for refusing to leave during overnight protest at port [/B]

    STACEY MULICK; The News Tribune
    Published: March 13th, 2007 08:02 AM


    Police arrested five people early Tuesday at the Port of Tacoma after anti-war protestors refused orders to move off the railroad tracks, Tacoma police reported.

    The five were arrested on suspicion of criminal obstruction and booked into Pierce County Jail, police detective Brad Graham said Tuesday morning.

    No injuries were reported to the protestors or police. No property damage was reported, Graham said.

    The arrests early Tuesday bring the total number of protestors arrested at the Port of Tacoma to 37. [B]Protestors have been at the port each night since March 3 in an attempt to block a shipment of Strykers and other military equipment to Iraq.[/B] The 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division held its deployment ceremony Monday at Fort Lewis.

    Between 75 and 100 protestors were at the port Monday night. About 9 p.m., the group started to march from Lincoln Avenue and Milwaukee Way to East 11th Street and Port of Tacoma Road. They stayed at the Port of Tacoma Road location before heading back to Lincoln Avenue and Milwaukee Way shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, Graham said.

    “They chanted and held signs,” he said. “It seemed peaceful.”

    When the protestors were back in the Lincoln and Milwaukee area, Graham said they were blocking access to some of the railroad tracks. He noted trains move along the tracks throughout the night by the port.

    Officers ordered the crowd to disburse. When they refused, a chemical spray was released, Graham said. All but five protestors disbursed. The five who remained again refused to leave and were taken into custody, Graham said.

    Tacoma police were assisted at the port late Monday and early Tuesday by officers from the King County Sheriff’s Office, Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, Washington State Patrol and a group of South King County law enforcement agencies.

    Tacoma police plan to have a round-the-clock presence at the port until the military equipment leaves. [/QUOTE]

    good to know these leftists are working hard to assist the enemy.....

    In reality it is the videos refuting the 'liberal' media reports you posted.

    Which has more credibility? What you see in the video(s) or what you read from someone else?

    your sick, delusional mind is what is refuting the reports posted...not reality...there is nothing in the video to back up a single idiot claim you made...

    in fact you can hear the police tell the protestors "back up"...yet even in the sh!tty production of the video the protestors refuse the order of the police and push forwards...

    Was it Tacoma where those idiots were burning flags and supporting the Islamic resistence and burning the effigy of a US soldier?

    Not that this incident is related, but I think I remember it was a Washington town, just don't remeber which it was.
