witnesses needed

I'm making an exception to my general rule not to publish articles here, because I think that this is very important, so I'm not even putting up a link. Witnesses are needed to give first hand testimony of police brutality. So, please, if you saw these attacks, or know people who did, please contact the numbers listed.
