      And you know they won't

      And honestly, the police in the Bay Area will allow illegal marches, mainly because they know it's stupid to start arresting and attacking people if your goal is to facilitate the least disruption of traffic. But the NYPD wasn't interested in that. They wanted to punish.

      And I'll say it again, "It's just my job" is not and has never been an acceptable excuse for brutalizing people.
