"POLICE BRUTALITY. The guy on the ground was thrown down, pepper sprayed multiple times, kicked in the temple and back of the head, and then beat with a baton. For what? Taking photos of another person being assaulted by police. I was choked with my own helmet by a cop and Brian was maced - again… FOR TAKING PHOTOS."
"That ain’t sunburn. It’s pepper spray from a rage filled Chicago Police Officer by the last name of Fry.
I’m one of about a dozen who caught his wrath (without ANY warning) at the conclusion of Critical Mass. Most were on the sidewalk - not bothering anyone.
At least I didn’t get tackled randomly from my bike (again without warning) like the two guys ahead of me.
They smashed a guy’s face in the ground and kicked him in the temple for TAKING PICTURES of the brutality happening in the streets.
I could go on and on (male cop snatching Blair by the head and forcefully pushing her away for taking pictures, etc) but you get the idea.
What a disgrace.
FUCK. THE. POLICE."
