Since this discussion took place last week, I am wondering if this film was available at that time. The protestors were clearly and dispassionately informed of their fate if they didn't break up the protest.

I guess some people think the police don't have a right to break up a protest under any circumstances. I suppose that's where the debate lies but it looks like the policies that led to the pepper spray incident were in place and this was not some crazy reaction.
