      he is restrained to keep him from moving forward towards the officer. He is not being choked and you can tell by looking at his face and eyes. Show up anywhere with a mask and wig and you deserve what you get. no one mentioned they turned people over in lawn chairs and were being jerks. If you want to protest then do it, but man up, show your face and get your point accross reasonably.....or you get what you deserve.

      I don't understand the masks. I am excited to see a protest against the hate filled Tea Party, but I don't quite get the relevance of protesters hiding their faces.

      Wait, why is wearing a mask a bad thing? Why does a person deserve to get choked for wearing a mask? Also, if I restrained you by taking my hand and encompassing your larynx, thereby obstructing your breathing, I believe you would say "stop choking me".
      You say you can tell that he is not being choked "..by looking at his face and eyes." So, if you can figure this out, then mask obviously isn't very effective and is thus of no merit.

      Seems more like a personal attack than professional crowd control methods.

      Well done. Keep up the good work, and stay clear of the police!

      I never said it was bad, nor do I think it warrant the choking. I still don't see it's relevance of it to the protest. If they are boldly speaking out against something, masking their faces doesn't seem positioned alongside that protest idea.

      his eyes are not bulging red or watering, his face (cheeks) are not flush. he does not look over anxious. And if you show up at my house with a mask and wig you will get more than "choked" and that is the significance of a mask.....and why where a mask to protest? i do not care about the tea party but they did have certification to be there as did the gay and lesbian groups and the myriad of other protestors. THey wore masks because they were breaking the law. So do not think these guys are any better or more righteous than the tea partiers. amazing.....my extreme is better than your extreme? all of it is pure ignorance when most of the populace is in the middle.

      You should never be putting your hand around someone's neck, --especially-- if you are an officer of the law. The neck is a sensitive area of the human body and should not be used to hold, move, push, pull, a human being unless you accept the possibility you could accidentally or purposely do SERIOUS PHYSICAL HARM. There is no excusing an officer using this type of hold on a peaceful protester. An officer is not trained to throttle a person whether they are to be detained or not and whatever holds or detainment they offer is supposed to be quick and to the point, with the main purpose to eliminate struggle. Grabbing someone by the throat is inviting struggle and I applaud the protester for remaining calm and cool-headed while someone abused his rights in such a belittling and dangerous way.

      The people in control of the U.S. are perfectly ok with us hating each other, up to and including killing each other. As long as you don't unite and go upwards towards the 10 foot thick and lowering cement ceiling that's above behind which they hide (and chortle at how contemptible American citizenry is).

      Police are using many types of extreme control on protestors that are not necessary for crowd control. It is out of hand in many areas. Grabbing someone by the throat is wrong.

      The pigs have their guns. All's right with the world.

      Did I not hear someone say divide and conquer? Keep playing the discrimination card ( that is..rich vs poor to those guilty ones) and you have yourself a winner! Ask Obama. He could tell you a book or two about it.

      You need a permit to protest. I don't know if Rev Al Sharpton ever applied for one. Haven't seen him in a long time..hehehe. He is the one you need Occupoopers.

      I always wondered why people called cops "Pigs" but since these protests it's become pretty evident. It's a shame that pigs like this are allowed to wear the uniform, it's also a shame that guy didn't "accidentally" cave someones nose in. Self defense, just saying, grab me like that and I'll take the assault charge.

      We live in a bully society. Every where you go. No matter what we do, or what we stand for. Just sick. Keep your hands to yourself.
