This photograph is capturing and recording history from the Civil Rights Movement. The picture is depicting police brutality. Is it up to the photographer to save the person from being beaten or for them to document the event so they may share the image and impact other people? http://photos.state.gov/galleries/usinfo-photo/39/civil_rights_07/
One of high school student Taylor Washington's numerous arrests is immortalized as he yells while passing before me. The photograph became the cover of SNCC's photo book, The Movement, and was reproduced in the former Soviet Union in Pravda, captioned "Police Brutality USA."
It is unfortunate about what has happened to innocent citizens trying to follow a law and maintain order. However, protestors are now starting to talk about police brutality and are commenting on their force and how they treat protestors. Some of the nonviolent protestors have recently spoke up about their experiences and are trying to protest against it. I think that this would be beneficial in stopping these actions happen.
