Can't take the sky from me

Police raid Berkeley encampment; tents rise into the air.

So, anyway, why are police in all these different cities engaging in more shamelessly violent behavior than, say, ten-twelve years ago? Is it that (1) They don't know how bad it looks, (2) They don't care how bad it looks, or (3) They're counting on the property-values media, from the SF Chronicle to Fox News, to convince the stay-at-home public that demonstrators are less human than other citizens?

The more I think about it, #3 scares me the most.
