Police Aggression at Civic Center Rally
Video footage of police assaulting protestors at the Civic Center protest against the war in Lebanon. Duration 3:03 minutes. A series of stills taken from the video.
This video was taken at the demonstration at SF Civic Center on August 12th, 2006. It was unclear what started the incident. Police rushed in, jabbing people with clubs, pulling one person over a barricade, taking a guy down and injuring his head, while one cop seems to have climbed on top of a woman. Hopefully better footage of this event will come in.
Note on left the cop on top of the woman with his arms around her.
Cops pull an ANSWER volunteer over the barricade (headfirst to the ground).

This fool needs a chill pill.
It is hard to tell from the video and the still, but this guy is bleeding from a head-injury, presumably cop-induced. This guy was arrested.
