Police kick pro-life protester unconscious, break another’s jaw

The The Indianapolis Star has an article about police violence against Operation Rescue demonstrators:

“Indianapolis police hope to handle the situation [of the Operation Rescue demonstrators] with more finesse than Atlanta police used in their city, where over 400 demonstrators were arrested this week and nearly 800 were arrested in earlier protests.

Bob Fierer, an Atlanta attorney representing Operation Rescue, said police brutality lawsuits will be filed in Atlanta, where he said police broke the jaw of an Indiana minister, Doyle Clark, and kicked another man unconscious. An Atlanta police captain denied the charges. He said police “have to use whatever pressure is necessary and condoned by the Atlanta Police Bureau” to get demonstrators into police wagons.”
