I have the right to protest in peace.. Yet i was hit almost point blank range with a rubber BULLET TO MY FACE.. KNOCKING OUT ALL OF MY FRONT TEETH N FACTURING MY FACE.. Say what you want but enough is enough.. I know im a good man n i know i didnt deserve this.. What makes them feel they have a right to do this to me.or anybody.
