So do you think state violence against non-violent resistance was a thing of the past?

Read this - with video - about the recent police action at the University of California, Davis. I would expect much more to come in the aftermath. I will keep readers posted.

UPDATE: For those wondering if this gone "international," the answer is clearly "yes": see here for the BBC.

UPDATE 2: So anyone surprised that Tea Party protests met with no batons or pepper-spray, but that Wall Street Occupiers and sympathizers are met with violence?

Do say: "The more things change, the more they stay the same."

Don't say: "Culture war, part II."
