This Ain't Kansas
Any one who has been paying attention will note that in any country, those that attempt to go against the status quo are victimized while those who go along with the program claim there is nothing wrong except for those trouble makers.
Salon.com has an excellent read on the FTAA protests that occured recently in Miami Florida. Peep the details, especially how the police were prepped. One thing that "shocked" one person was how the police were trained to see the protesters as the enemy and were basically told how they were protecting 86,000 jobs that could come to Miami. The listener seemed to have been under the impression that the police, in general, are supposed to be neutral protectors of liberty and law. He was shocked that they, in general, are there to protect specific, often property and monetary, interests. Perhaps a refresher on Black history USA would lower the shock value of these events.
