A local Denver activist is attempting to organize an MMA-style charity fight pitting police officers against hard-headed activists. Proceeds would apparently be donated to the People's Law Group as a showing of solidarity for those now caught up with legal trouble after being arrested during protest events at the DNC.
In a news story titled, "Protesters say police used overkill; cops say anarchists had rocks", News writers Daniel J. Chacon and Judi Villa offer some skepticism about the police argument that protesters had rocks. They also attribute to Denver City Councilman Doug Linkhart a claim that police witnessed "after the confrontation ... some of the protesters were seen stopping by the portable toilets in Civic Center to 'refuel their weapons' with feces."
Chacon and Villa counter the City Councilman's claim.
David Beller of the People's Law Project discusses the arraignment of protesters.
