Police Violence at DNC

I'm not a fan of Codepink, but I was very disturbed to see this policeman take a baton to a peaceful Codepink protester for no apparent reason. These security forces should be held accountable for using excessive force, who knows what else they've done that wasn't caught on tape.

You can see the full uncut video and narration from the point of view of the photojournalist who documented the whole thing (you can also see the police tackle and arrest some other random peaceful protester) at this link.
