Arrests and allegations of brutality between Chicago police, protesters

Editor's note: Read all of Security Clearance's coverage of the 2012 NATO summit in Chicago.  Follow our reporting and other key NATO tweets with our NATO summit Twitter list.

By the CNN Wire Staff

Protesters vowed to carry out disruptive demonstrations Monday in Chicago, a day after baton-wielding police clashed with demonstrators in a violent confrontation that left dozens injured just blocks from where NATO leaders were gathered.

Security was expected to be tight on the final day of the two-day NATO summit, which has played out against a backdrop of protests that has seen thousands taken to the street to protest everything from the war in Afghanistan to the economy.

Occupy Chicago, one of the groups that helped organize the demonstrations, took to social media to urge people to join in another planned demonstration at 10 a.m. ET on Monday.

Dozens were injured in a melee Sunday that came at the end of a largely, peaceful demonstration that began in Chicago's Grant Park, where President Barack Obama delivered his presidential acceptance speech in 2008.

Individualism is really weakly manufactured within just persons ethnicities given that are typically interpersonal programs.

    I'll say it … I'm embarrassed.........I'm disappointed. I came to Chicago expecting an opportunity to protest NATO’s presence and intervention in countries far removed from the “security” of those nations belonging to the NATO coalition. Instead, I saw obvious attempts to provoke the police, outright misrepresentation of the facts – by “reporters” and my "fellow" marchers (who "claimed" to be attacked by the police – but actually sustained injuries from objects thrown by the raucous and unprovoked crowd).
    There are serious issues to be discussed and resolved – yet in Chicago, I saw a group of my fellow "activists" presenting little more than overly dramatic hyperbole-laced rhetoric. Few were even able to describe the reason for attending let alone engage in any real discussion of the issues in an intelligent manner.
    I'm disappointed and a bit ashamed of those few who attended the marches and rallies. There was nowhere near the 15,000 ~ 40,000 people we were led to expect. Who decided that to be effective in presenting our “message” we HAD to be confrontational…we HAD to call the police names…we HAD to throw liquids and debris to get attention….
    I still believe that the very existence of NATO and America’s deep involvement in that organization is wrong for many reasons. But my Chicago experience has awakened me to another threat….one that may even transcend the evil of NATO…the treat of ignorance, anarchy and disrespect.

    We still have the right to say what we believe and to protest here, although just barely. I was there all day yesterday and people we great. The city hired lots of outside contractors, reminding me of Chaneyand Blackwater. Emmanuel rewards his private contractor friends for sure. Better stand up in this country for the rights that people in the past fought and died for before we are all sheep that just mindlessly follow what the masters say.

    I am disgusted by CNNs coverage of these events, if one may even call it that. CNN has completely ignored the events occuring in Chicago until yesterday, where the gravity and importance of the protest was downplayed, as was the number of protesters there, the number of arrests, and the number of injuries DUE TO POLICE BRUTALITY. This is not journalism. This is propaganda. So PLEASE tell me more about Zuckerberg's marriage to distract me from speaking, acting, and thinking.

      Maybe they didn't cover it much because before the protestors became violent it was just a small group of modern day hippies doing what they do best.... walk and chant and annoy the rest of us.... Why protest NATO anyways? NATO is an important military arrangement with European Powers... See it's hippies like you that don't understand.... If not for NATO we'd pay for the war in Afghanistan entirely by ourselves... it wouldn't stop us from being there.... are you stupid... did you forget? People from that Nation flew Planes into our buildings and killed thousands of our people... that's why we went there... we weren't heading to afghanistan for a fricken camp out... we didn't go there because we wanted to you moron.... now take a shower cut your hair and try to get a job, stop being worthless to society.
