Smash the state before it smashes you

Today I witnessed one of the most disgusting displays of police behaviour. I saw the police drag a TV3 camera man to the group, wrestle his $80,000 camera off him and proceed to assault him. Along with up to three other officers joining in.

I saw another member of the media get arrested when he took photos of this going on.

This makes me sick.

Since when does the police get to interfere with media scrutiny of their action?

Since when are the police the security guards for private companies.

Watch it for yourself at the Green Party Stop the Wellington Bypass campaign page.
