    appeal to in this country regarding the use of excessive force by local cops on peacefully assembled  citizens?

    Is the right to question authority truly denied us?

    Is this official policy?

    Is this---now-- "policy"---and as such----is it currently stated----or is it simply an "understood" tactic?

    We either do---or do not-- have the right to question authority and to protest---in a peaceful fashion in this country.

    Which is it?

    If we are---and have been-------in a state of facism-- ---on this soil---then we really do need to know.

    People have succumbed to excessive force by law enforcement in this country.

    Which is it?

    And what is the actual offcial policy---here?
