Comparing this to Tiananmen Square now?

These clowns are beyond absurd at this point.

Had they already asked nicely, sent a formal invitation to surrender or offered her a nice piece of pie before they took her down?

The only difference between this photo and the TS photo is that in the latter the authorities were riding in tanks. In this one they are on foot.

All the other dynamics are essentially the same--runaway government asserting its authority.

I enlarged that photo. Where are the drawn weapons? I don't see it.

It seems to me that one Christina Warren has an agenda, unless someone can point out drawn weapons. The two officers near her seem more concerned about the lady's safety that their own. Of course one could argue that they could have dropped their riot gear before approaching her, forming a human shield with their bodies, then donned the gear once again. Yeah, that's it. They were just too lazy.

Didn't they run over that guy with the tank? Yeah, this is exactly the same. :roll:

Got to admit the optics are terrible!

You're missing the part about "proportional response" - she's clearly passive & unarmed! :doh

What? So to make YOU happy they need to take OFF their protective gear before approaching her. Check.

Justify it however you want, but if you can look at that photo and not see there's something going wrong in this country, you're far different person than I.

Optics like this broadcast around the world only solidify the growing perception that America is becoming a militarized police state. And there's truth in that.

It's become too much to turn a blind eye, and the results can be seen nearly every day on the nightly news ...

Behind them, a squadron of officers in SWAT gear stand at the ready, some with rifles drawn.

Can we see a picture of the officers with rifles drawn? There are none in the pictures in your link.

Liberal rhetoric....they don't care if it's true.

More like #nomoreBLM and I might get on board.

The Police are forced to react to situations, after Dallas, do you blame them for being overly concerned?

He probably cheered when he heard of the Dallas murders.

Come on. The last time officers went to a BLM demonstration without protective gear, five officers ended up dead. To not allow them to protect themselves right now would be malfeasance.

What's the matter with people?

What are you expecting? Do you think they should take off the riot gear and put down their guns before approaching any young female protestors and then put it all back on to deal with the violent rioters who could be just out of frame for all we know?

She’s clearly playing a role in the protests and is in the middle of the road. She appears to be unarmed and peaceful but sadly that’s not an assumption officers in this kind of context can take on face value. They seem to be very gently and peacefully trying to lead her away though. They’re in the riot gear because they were (quite rightly) expecting a riot but it’s not as it they’re actually using it against her.

Protests can turn to riots.Protests can even turn deadly like the one in Dallas. If would be a shock if they were not protecting themselves.

Yes, it looks like she's wearing a powerful police-repellent!

Where would she be hiding any weapons? They could have shot her just in case, I suppose. Does it need three heavily armored policemen to take out a girl in a summer dress?

The police appear to be already blocking that roadway - do you see any cars passing by? Perhaps the pollice decalred a "safe space" and were giving anyone else a "ime out" if they dared to enter it. ;)
