Using the “people’s mic” that is his own booming voice, U.S. Marine Sergeant Shamar Thomas, a veteran with two tours in Iraq to his name, delivers a powerful excoriation of the New York Police Department, chastising officers for many instances of hurting unarmed civilians.

  1. This has to be one of the best videos to come out of the Occupy movement. The man is furious but cogent and clear. He’s somehow able to shout at the top of his lungs without sounding hysterical. And the looks on the officers’ faces–each one seems to say something different, from guarded shame to outright obstinate pride.

    Can’t wait to get back to NY to join in the fray!
