Feedback: Police Set Up Demonstrators for Arrest

Are Some Demonstrators Seen On The News Smashing Windows Really Cops?

Internationally, journalists report that undercover police have been discovered at demonstrations throughout Europe smashing storefront windows and staging fights to incite protestors to riot. And that police have used this as the excuse to attack, beat up and arrest law-abiding protestors.

In the U.S., police squads increasingly intimidate and attack lawful demonstrators while allowing vandals and other law-breakers to walk away or even through their ranks of police. Nationally, law enforcement agencies appear to be criminalizing a citizen's right to free speech and public dissent?

Undercover police agents and their handlers should be arrested or sued when they incite riot and/or cause the illegal destruction of property at a lawful demonstration? Protestors and other citizens should videotape and identify undercover police and agent provocateurs at demonstrations that incite riot, break windows and/or destroy property. Note: The aforementioned corrupt police and their associate agents may be sued for damages, by anyone acting on behalf of the injured; including damaged business and property owners. Publicity of such lawsuits against corrupt police, win or lose, would help alert U.S. Citizens that the demonstrators they see on the Six O'clock News fighting or destroying property, may really be cops.
