For Pete's Sake Just Look At the Tape
Those who are leaping to the defense of this cop need to actually spend the half minute it takes to watch the damn tape first. This extraordinary and to say the least excessive force would not be justified even if this obviously nonthreatening woman exercising her constitutionally protected right to free assembly in this country actually had sprayed this officer with water, but quite apart from all that it is conspicuously clear from the tape that the water sprays from off frame well away from the woman thereupon brutally attacked by this cop. Don't get this twisted people. This is an obvious outrage.
