I didn't see a punch, there was a lot of flailing from the protesters, she likely either caught an elbow in the mush from her own side or she's just standing there like a carp out of water working up some tears. Apparently, yelling and screaming 'this is a court order' isn't the right approach. The kid with the flag sure seemed stoned (surprise)

Problem is that if it was a court order, then it has to go through proper channels. Showing a Court order to a bunch of cops at that point isn't going to do any good. Standing there screaming "this is a court order" over and over isn't going to do any good either.

Other people have been going through proper channels. The video doesn't indicate that they weren't. Proper channels are equally being stonewalled and rebuffed. Proper authorities have been assaulted by the police who had no respect for their authority, including a supreme court judge who was shoved up against a wall despite proper identification. The police have the attitude that they are accountable to no one, including their superiors.

Oh...trust me...there have been too many episodes in the news where the police have ignored their superiors and the proper authorities over them. There's been a recent concern about the "militarization" of the police forces recently. And at the rate things are getting stirred up, it's just a matter of time before we have another Kent State on our hands. The problem that I have is that there are always "investigations" AFTER the fact, which means nothing is going to happen.
