It has been a month since the protesters have settled in all over the world to protest the Wall Street bankers that have essentially turned the world’s economy upside down. Things in New York got a little violent over the weekend though as protesters were met with excessive force from New York’s finest.
Lawrence O’Donnell’s Last Word featured one Marine who was not going to take the NYPD’s brutality laying down. He confronted the police and completely neutralized their actions with his words. He gave an explosive speech to every police officer standing near protesters.
Sgt. Shemar Thomas told how he, as well as both of his parents, served in Iraq to protect the U.S. people and he comes home to NYC and he’s watching them attack defenseless people…defenseless Americans! The very people they are supposed to protect! He shouted at the officers over and over again, “There is no honor in this!” Go Sgt. Moore! We need more like you! Listen to his moving speech!
