man kept screaming "I didn't do anything, I didn't do anything, let me go,
let me alone, I didn't do anything". When the police tried to take him in
for drunkenness he resisted arrest. He fought like a crazy person. Ultimately
it took six officers to truss him up and put him in the car. The crowd of street
people booed and yelled at the police and it looked to me as though they were
close to insurrection. Finally they drove their prisoner away leaving the crowd
feeling angry and bitter.
I've watched a number of people
get arrested for drunkenness. The police don't even try to reason with them, they
just brutally attack. They throw them face down, cuff their hands behind them,
and haul them away. It's really quite efficient.
