I'm posting this for those who don't know yet, because I only found out a little while ago.



The above video shows a young woman, a peaceful protester holding a flower, being hit and pepper-sprayed by police in full riot gear.

This is happening in St. Paul. People are being arrested and their homes raided for planning to protest at the RNC.

(And before anyone else brings this up: yes, I know there may have been some similar activity when people demonstrated at the DNC. That does not make this any less despicable.)
