f***kyeahchicago:

POLICE BRUTALITY. The guy on the ground was thrown down, pepper sprayed multiple times, kicked in the temple and back of the head, and then beat with a baton. For what? Taking photos of another person being assaulted by police. I was choked with my own helmet by a cop and Brian was maced - again… FOR TAKING PHOTOS.
Chicago Tumblrs - who got video?  We NEED to get this out to the media.

What is this, Nazi Germany?
This is a ridiculous abuse of power, assuming it’s true. And I’ve read of multiple occurrences of this kind of intimidation of people taking pictures of police, such as at Instapundit. 
So, um, WTF?!
The police have no right to beat the crap out of some guy taking pictures of them, and this is obvious to anybody with two eyes.  And if they are really doing this in response to some guy taking pictures of them brutalizing some other guy, then there is something seriously wrong with not just these particular cops, but the institution itself.
We need to get a grip on this, and fast. I’m all for law and order, and the fact the the cops beat up some hippies in Chicago in 1968 doesn’t bother me, because I’m pretty sure some of them deserved it.  But, again, assuming this photo and description is legit, this is something else entirely.
