This picture is over sized so you can see the club this officer carries. Gee, I assumed a standard club was issued and required.
I got to the demonstration quite late--the majority of folks had already headed out after making their stand at this intersection and within the Galleria for the die-in.
In general, the police I saw were polite and even friendly. Rather a lot of them, too. There were fourteen officers on my corner, and at least thirty around the intersection overall, plus additional officers on bikes traveling with a group of marchers, and mounted police across the way.
