This incident is further confirmation of the playwright Brendan Behan's observation "That there is no situation so dismal that the presence of the police can't make it worse!" The police have taken on an 'Us vs, Them' They no longer view themselves as Peace Officers but as Law Enforcers. Look at the militarization of police, the incidents of agent provacateurs at the demonstration, the overwhelming force. The internal investigations always find them as acting within procedure. Maybe the procedure needs to change.
