    Thanks for this. But while watching I’m reminded that the city police back in the 30’s carried billy clubs and maybe a handgun. Today they show up in full riot gear, looking like something out of Star Wars — with comparable weapons, just to face unarmed protesters/occupiers. They “playing” field is ridiculously uneven these days.

      Yes, good video…seems that nothing changes over time. The police are not as brave today as they were back then.

    Was this a single 8 minute newsreel? Where did you find it? Who produced it – there were no credits.
