Since I’m way on the west coast I generally ignore NYC news. However, I followed a link to the protest near Wall Street by the brave folk who are trying to peacefully protest the Rape of America by the Fat cats of wall street.
Looking at the cops working for the Wall Street criminals — makes we wonder how many of the cops are bulking up on steroids? Sorry but I always wonder about muscle bound cops after reading about the misuse of steroids by cops. More on use of steroids by cops — here and here and here
One of the side effects of steroid abuse is Aggression.
In both men and women steroid abusers, evidence of “roid rage” or increased aggression from too much testosterone is a hotly contested topic. However, in animal studies, the relationship between steroids and aggression has always been pretty clear.
In some studies, more than 80 percent of steroid-treated animals become extremely aggressive. In humans, the picture has been clouded by alternative explanations and a lack of hard evidence. Only in recent years have researchers been able to confirm that steroid-induced aggression is a real human phenomenon that can occur in individuals who take large doses of steroids for extended periods of time. This heightened aggression can lead to irritability, stress, and violence.
When the circuits in the brain that are responsible for impulse control are influenced by steroids, it affects this system that inhibits aggressive response, predisposing some abusers to violent outbursts. Researchers do not yet know the key as to why some abusers are more affected than others, but the correlation between steroids and aggressive behavior is a documented phenomenon.
Update: NYC Cops use pepper spray on restrained protesters. 3 Young women standing on the sidewalk are held in place by a portable fence (cops holding fence) another cop wearing a white shirt walks up to the women and deliberately sprays the can of pepper spray in their faces. The three women are shown on the ground screaming in pain. The cop who assaulted the women walks away, replacing the can on his belt. ALL male cops were involved in this assault — from the male cops who restrained the women to the male who held the pepper spray. A poster made of the women on their knees obviously in extreme pain will be worth a thousand words.
Note that the NYT says “appears” to show protesters being pepper sprayed — what the hell — this video SHOWS clearly a cop spaying women penned for his convince by other stinking cops. the NYT video is in slo mo — with arrows showing the cop in white shirt. This creep needs to be identified and arrested for assault — sorry what am I thinking?? That is a NYC cop — these guys can get away with rape and murder.
