Police, Not Protestors, Create Chaos

Let it not be said that protestors are the cause of violent confrontations:

DENVER (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union says undercover
police officers posing as protesters staged a violent confrontation
with another officer during the Democratic convention in Denver.

The ACLU said it obtained a police document
showing the undercover officers pretended to struggle with a police
commander so they could be removed from the crowd without blowing
their cover.

The ACLU says another officer thought the commander was being
attacked and pepper-sprayed the undercover officers.

It's not clear how many officers were involved or how they were
affected by the spray.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Associated Press
he was unaware of the report and couldn't comment. The ACLU didn't
immediately return a message.

And yet, these cop-on-cop attacks are used to justify more restrictions on REAL people....

The state loves violence so any excuse to attack unarmed people is fun for them.
