Gulf War 1 protest in Chicago in the early 90's. The gentleman being restrained was the leader of the Vets Against the War group and did absolutely nothing wrong. The cops were completely out of control. Shot with a Nikon 8008s on T-Max 400 B&W Film.

    This is what Vets have to put up with because they have a different view - we are living in a POLICE STATE !
    Remember the Vet - all of them - listen to them...
    We have been there and it sucks!!
    Great shot, Jason!

    Sadly, I've found this to be the norm when it comes to police and protests. When I was in San Francisco in 2003, I had one of my wisdom teeth knocked out by a riot cop.
