(NaturalNews) As predicted, it was only a matter of time before protesters at Occupy Wall Street (OWS) began experiencing the wrath of the new American police state which, as we wrote about previously, happened to receive a special cash infusion recently from Wall Street icon JPMorgan Chase (http://www.naturalnews.com/033779_JP_Morgan_...).

A series of videos uploaded to YouTube show officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) storming the streets, assaulting protesters, beating them with night sticks, and even bragging and laughing about the fact that they are getting to use their weapons against citizens. In one incident, reporters from My FOX New York were even assaulted with pepper spray and beaten with batons (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/occupy-wall-...).

In the first, shorter clip posted at the following link, you will see a high-ranking NYPD officer standing in the middle of a crowd swinging his baton at protesters that were apparently trying to cross a barrier. In the second, longer clip taken from a different angle, you see the same officer swatting his baton, as well as numerous other officers assaulting other protesters: http://gothamist.com/2011/10/05/video_nypd_b...

In this clip, you will see an officer laughing and telling a fellow officer that "[his] little nightstick's going to get a workout tonight," referencing, of course, the confrontations with protesters that would soon follow:

Though disturbing, the state's hostile response to these OWS protests is still relatively mild, especially compared to what took place at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, for instance. At that event, cops stormed the streets in full riot gear, pushed back crowds with eery, NAZI-like street marches, trampled protesters with horses, blasted them with pepper spray and smoke bombs, and even fired long range acoustic device (LRAD) sound weapons at people on the streets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f144QJ7-eIo).

And again in 2009, riot police and military personnel stormed the streets of Pittsburgh, Penn., during the G20 Summit. An InfoWars video shows a group of about 1,200 police state troops attacking over 300 Americans at one time, many of whom were not even part of the protests and had no idea that they was even taking place (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFYoyv2Gm1I).

Americans must stop standing idly by while the police state takes full control

The police brutality exhibited at all these events is disturbing, and it is likely going to get worse in response to the ongoing OWS protests. But what is even more disturbing is the relative complacency of outside observers during almost every police state incident, many of whom can be seen watching police state thugs terrorizing their fellow man, but doing nothing.

If tyranny against free speech, the right to freely assemble, and all the other constitutional protections that are routinely violated is ever to cease, Americans are going to have to step forward and begin actively resist it. This includes developing a little more willingness and courage to help protect others from police attacks, especially when it is occurring right before their eyes.
