Colorado Springs police assault senior peace protesters
Colorado Repost
Police violently lashed out with zero justification at a peace contingent joining the St. Patrick's day parade in Colorado Springs. Several members of the Pike's Peak Justice and Peace commission, including several elderly, were photographed being assaulted, knocked down, and having clothing pulled off. As background, my family members who are long-term residents of Colorado Springs confirmed the conversion of the city towards an extreme right wing tendency during the past 20 years as the city politicians invited in large evangelical groups such as Focus on the Family as 'nonpolluting industries'. This is the town with the megachurch led by Ted Haggard. During antiwar marches in 2003, police started getting violent and released chemical spray against completely legal marchers, including seniors and children for stepping off the sidewalk along a street where the police had shut off traffic.
