Mili Lib: ..and once again, the crowd films for YouTube and does nothing to intervene but yell their “outrage.” Nothing to see here, folks.
Iraq war veteran Emily Yates was arrested on Friday after a dispute with police about where she could stand while playing her banjo during a protest against U.S. military action in Syria.
Yates was asking the Federal Parks Police why they were demanding she move from a shady area at Independence Mall in Philadelphia.
After repeatedly asking them as well as talking to those around her, the cops over a park bench and handcuffed her, with her screaming “We live in a police state.” We live in a f*cking police state! They’re damaging my body and my personal property! I went to war for this country! Stop manhandling me! Stop! Stop! Help! Help!”
By the end as they were dragging Yates away, eight cops were participating.
