However, just look at how police treated the Occupiers. They have the same concerns? Sure didn't seem like it with multiple accounts of police brutality. And whatever the Occupiers may or may not have done, the actions of the police were horrifying at times. It would be good to know that this officer has a conscience, as I'm sure most do, but group-think is a terrible thing that leads people to participate in atrocious activities. And the strength of group-think: It will carry forward unless deliberately objected to and pushed back with similar force. Even if you don't approve of an action, your silence is complicit. So I can't take the officer at that word, even multiple officers, unless I knew that they actually prided themselves in being somewhat contrarian by nature.
