This is an NYPD whiteshirt.
See the anger in his face?
See the cocked arm, ready to strike?
See the forward motion as he lunges at a peaceful protester?
The NYPD surrounded the park, out of the blue, around 1 A.M. this morning, most protesters caught unaware.
Most of them left peacefully, after being ordered to by cops using bullhorns and wearing riot gear.
The one who didn’t stayed behind, formed human chains and staying behind makeshift barricades.
They were forcibly removed, helpless, powerless against the machine.
And yet, this whiteshirt.
Full of anger; full of hate.
Ready to strike.
