To Serve and Protect

Abby Zimet

Great outraged rant from MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnel on police brutality at Occupy Wall Street - and, in fact, every day across America, from the beating of Rodney King to Anthony Bologna's pepper-spray attack. Police do it, he says, "because they know they can." He challenges police "investigators" to say it ain't so, and do something about it. Terrific.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
