  •  You would think that after (10+ / 0-)

    the SFPD (or was it the Sherriff's Dept.?) nearly killed farmworker activist Dolores Huerta with a ruptured spleen a few years ago by jamming a nightstick into her abdomen, as we see the campus police attempting to do to the students, police departments would have taken that one out of their playbook.

    The assertion that passive resistance is "violence" is as cynical, self-serving, and just plain false as when Rethugs tried to claim that trespassing to take pictures of an illegally polluting facility was "terrorism."
