A man has a word with police on hand to close of the street as Occupy LA protesters take to the streets around City Hall in downtown Los Angeles, early on November 28, 2011. More than 1,000 anti-Wall Street protesters defied a deadline to leave a park near Los Angeles City Hall Monday, as police vowed to evict them "as gently as possible" to clear out a two-month old camp. The midnight deadline passed without police charging the encampment, but by the middle of the night scores of baton-wielding officers had surrounded the park, preventing the protesters from moving into adjacent streets to clear the streets for the morning traffic.

    “This is what a police state looks like”

    No, you do an excellent job of disproving that yourself. The fact that you can go to city hall and protest there with a sign like that and not be immediately shot on sight shows we _do not_ live in a police state.

    In fact, how dare you equate your situation with the situation of those who put their lives on the line in actual police states to try to end real oppression (for example, demonstrators in Syria, who the security forces are quite content to use for target practice). You live in a country that is imperfect – it has its problems – and there is nothing wrong with trying to illuminate and fix those problems – but lets not resort to lies. America is not a police state – not even close.
