Abby Zimet

Reports of brutal police tactics during the allegedly restrained police eviction of Occupy L.A. have been trickling out, but the most damning and high-profile comes from Patrick Meighan, a writer for Fox' Family Guy. He angrily describes "super-violent" police in full SWAT mode shredding a First Aid tent, terrorizing protesters by stomping on their legs, wrenching their arms into too-tight handcuffs, and exorbitantly high bail set for misdemeanors, or no charges at all - and, in contrast, a former Citigroup CEO whose massive  financial crimes have gone unpunished.
