A protester handed President Barack Obama a note while shaking hands along a rope line in New Hampshire today.  Photographer Charlie Dharapak smartly zoomed in so you can read the note for yourself. 

“Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.”

Dhaparak likely had to move, slightly to the left, to get that shot.  Which means the President must have held it up long enough to read it.

President Obama, please don’t ignore this anymore.  Police brutality is police brutality.  Speak out against it.



I think Americans are beginning to realize this isn’t really the land of the free. We’re free until the law decides to incarcerate us. These protest movements might degenerate into armed confrontations. The use of excessive force by the authorities is a mistake.
