Police in Australia cut off ‘tent’ dress from Occupy, leave protester nearly naked

Police around the world will stop at nothing to protect the 1%. The video (view here) is disturbing to watch on many levels. The woman was violated by any normal standards and the Melbourne police have some explaining to do. Why are the police always so willing to use extreme tactics against those who protest, yet do so little – nothing, actually – against the true criminals who started the recession?

Victoria Police released a statement this evening revealing the Ethical Standards Department was investigating the incident after receiving a complaint.

”The Ethical Standards Department has subsequently received a physical assault complaint in relation to this incident and is investigating. As this investigation is ongoing we will not be commenting further.”

The footage appears to show a council worker being handed a knife by police to cut the tent from the woman – identified as Sarah, 20, who begins to struggle.
