During a relatively peaceful 2002 protest against the World Bank in Washington, D.C., anti-war demonstrators began to change the situational climate of the march. Tensions between protesters and police, who were expecting a violent demonstration, started to rise. Police began to arrest everyone that they managed to surround inside Pershing Park, guilty, as well as innocent bystanders alike. Demonstrators were pulled from the crowd, handcuffed and thrown on an awaiting Metro bus. This is a panned shot of a police officer moving towards a group of rowdy protesters. The shot is a bit too blurry for my liking, but it gives a sense of the tension that was felt that day.
