I think that the way the police acted was completely inappropriate and out of control. Obviously the government expected much more mayhem than they got because the cops seemed like they were itching to use their weapons. Most of the protests were peaceful. There was one group that got roudy but with proper police action nothing bad should have happened to innocent people. Also, i heard that thw most damage that was done in Oakland (all the smashed out windows) was mainly done by one person. And it was after this, when the police saw the damage on Forbes, that they began to lash out at "protestors" when really they gassing curious students. I mean, that is why we are students. We are curious. We want to learn. You can't arrest someone for exercising their rights. I felt as though a trigger went off in the police officers' heads and they went on a rage rampage. They seemed like they came so prepared to bust down rambunctious protestors that when there wasn't enough of them they took their actions on students and bystanders. They acted inappropriately and I am disappointed the force that is set up to protect the citizens of the USA. I think The University of Pittsburgh should sue.
