4:35pm ET - Last week in Baltimore, as activist prepared for another round of protests over the death of Freddie Gray, the Police Department was busy with preparations of their own, only they were not preparing to exercise their constitutional right to voice their opinion by peacefully assembling, but rather they were preparing to do battle against the very citizenry they are sworn to protect. Joining us today to discuss the militarization of our nations police forces and the combat zone tactics they are now using domestically against Americans is Michael Gould-Wartofsky, the author of The Occupiers: The Making of the 99 Percent Movement, and a PhD Fellow in Sociology at New York University who wrote all about law enforcement's war on activists for TomsDispatch.com & TheNation.com. You can also follow Michael on twitter.
