For weeks, after reading reports of the (name a city) police officers attacking and arresting Occupy protesters, I've wondered about the possible lawsuits against the city in question.
Where is the ACLU? To answer my own question, I Googled "ACLU" and "Occupy" and found several informative sources. Here's an example: http://aclum.org/occupy_resources
Where are the lawyers? I'm a person who doesn't hold negative attitudes toward lawyers. So, lawyers: Wouldn't a bunch of tort claims have any kind of impact on a city government? If each lawyer in an Occupied city took on only one pro bono case of an unprovoked attack on an Occupier, what would/could happen?
To Occupiers: collect and organize your evidence. If your city's Occupy Movement doesn't yet have an evidence website where witnesses can post details of arrests, links to videos they've taken, contact information, etc., start one now.
