1. So this happened today apparently.  This was the protest I was at earlier and was part of the arrests and ugliness that happened before I got there.  The protest was countering the tea party rally in Boston Common today, which hosted anti-lgbt bigot Scott Lively (author of The Pink Swastika- tw for horrific anti-lgbt hate)

The photo was taken by Paul Weiskel, and you can see other photos here.

This is what the protester had to say about the image, copied from Facebook:
"Hi, This is a picture of me. The "pale violet material" I’m holding was a wig I was wearing that a Tea Partier had just knocked off my head. I was asking the tea partier to explain to me why he thought it was okay to knock my wig off ("My hand slipped", he replied sarcastically) when the officer came up and said something along the lines of "okay, take your shit and get out of here" and shoved me a few feet. I turned to him and said "Don’t push me". he replied "Don’t push you?!" then did this. You can decide yourself if this was deserved or not."

      I wonder if this police officer is aware of how much he looks like Carl Winslow. Maybe that is his problem.
