A Sign of Things to Come: Police Brutality, Mass Arrests, Tear Gas Against Peaceful WIU Students

Annual year-end block party at Western Illinois University ends with riot police.

Students attending the Wheeler Block Party were met by a Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force who used tear gas, LRAD sound weapons and crowd suppression tactics to force students into their homes.

Gary Franchi is joined by eyewitness and victim of the raid, Julio Rausseo to review video footage and recount the abuses against the students.

Establishment media and law enforcement have begun to spin the story ignoring the rights abuses.

Please spread the word of this report and help get this story out.

After watching the above video, do you believe the police were justified to use violence and tear gas to break up the block party? Do you see this type of thing happening more and more often in times to come? Do you believe the day will come when the US government declares Martial Law?

Please, leave you view on this in the form of a comment bellow. And, please tweet this video to all your family and friends, letting them know what is happening in our country.

Your Friend,
