Phoenix (AZ) Police Pepper Spray Peaceful Protestors by Brian A. Wilkins

This unidentified Phoenix cop started the "disturbance" by pepper spraying protestors.

Dare I say the "white" people at yesterday's rally against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio were targeted by police?

It's kind of difficult to see it any other way after witnessing what appeared to be an unprovoked attack by Phoenix Police on protestors who were getting under their skin with taunts and various signs expressing how they felt.

Earlier in the day at Falcon Park in west Phoenix, the group of young people, clad in all black with burka-style face coverings, carried a sign which said, "Indigenous People For Migrant Rights And Dignity." I am only assuming this is the name of their group.

As "mainstream" media continue to report only what Phoenix Police say happened - that these young people "assaulted" and threw bottles at cops - Operation Nation was also on the scene and spoke to several witnesses, some of whom were actually hit with the pepper spray.

First, here is a report from ABC-15 about the "disturbance."

I understand that "mainstream" media must always take the side of police so they will continue to have all-access to arrest records, mugshots (e.g. the people who were arrested yesterday), and whatever other juice they desire to obtain from them. What is missing from this report and all others in the city is the name of the female, overzealous, robocop that started all the mayhem.

Here is what witnesses said about yesterday's incident.


When it was all said and done, Phoenix Police arrested five people: Ms. Sarah Grace Daniels, 23;  Mr. Jeremiah M. Henry, 18; Mr. Issa A. Emadi, 26; Mr. Garyn Klasek, 30; and Ms. Claire E. Brock, 23...all on charges ranging from "aggravated assault on a police officer," "disorderly conduct," and "resisting arrest."

Organizers of the rally quickly separated themselves from the group, saying they were there for "their own purposes."

These five individuals will now have to sit in a Maricopa County Jail until someone either bails them out and/or they are released on their own recognizance; all because of the ego trip of a female cop who obviously can't handle her job. Their lives will also now be forever altered, if these alleged "felony charges" stick.

Operation Nation will try and follow this story and keep you updated on each individual case.

The female cop who instigated this outrage against PEACEFUL protesters needs to be brought down off her high horse and identifyed.


Then, if we have any sort of functional legal system left, held accountable.

"An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself." Thomas Paine, Dissertation of First Principles of Government (July 1795).

Temper, are you being sarcastic or serious?

The attacking scumbags were lucky all they suffered was some pepperspraying and a few lumps.  

The horse should be rewarded with an extra bag of the best feed, for not laying out several of that mob after being attacked, and thay lady cop given an 'at'a'boy' in her file for not spuring her horse to trample them.
