Police Brutality in Denver: the Face of Democracy

Here are dramatic scenes of the knockdown of Alicia Forrest, a member of Code Pink. The Aspen Times says that a policeman violently shoved her. The Rocky Mountain News reports that she was thrown to the ground “with a smack.” The Denver Post quotes the cop saying “Back it up, bitch!” as he knocked her to the ground.

The cops then left her sprawled on the pavement. But when she began complaining to reporters (not about her own abuse, but about the unnecessary arrest of another protester,) they took a renewed interest and hauled her off to jail.
