New video of Secret Service, Capitol Police getting aggressive with DC Ferguson

On the 17th of December, new video footage emerged from the “after-march” following Al Sharpton’s massive civil rights march on Saturday, Dec 13. The Secret Service was filmed trying to force civil rights protesters from the sidewalk in front of the White House, only to throw in the towel when protesters stood their ground. In later footage the US Capitol Police refuse to permit Ferguson protesters to get anywhere near the Capitol during the night march, even though there is almost no traffic there.

Of course, the behavior of DC’s own Metropolitan Police Department two days later on Monday, Dec 15 was far worse. On that day DC cops tried to illegally “carry over” initial warnings given to protesters blocking I-395 to allow a single rapid-fire warning followed by arrests at a blockade of Chinatown. It took getting DC Police chief Lanier on the phone to put a stop to what could have easily been an illegal mass arrest.
