Which I think is ridiculous if you are wanting change in the police dept. Violence towards cops will only cause them to use violence towards you. Won't win any sympathy for this cause either. These people and the trouble makers at Berkeley, or in any city, aren't helping anyone but themselves. They are just using this as an excuse to show their true colors. Probably will even make some think maybe police have a good reason to be aggressive. Its sad too because some cops can and do go too far.
