An ASL Interpreter Beaten and Choked by Police During Occupy Portland.

From a tweet: ‘Though Justin was lying on the ground in compliance, Portland Police continuously beat him in the back with clubs until his eyes rolled back in his head. Fellow protesters thought he was dead. He is now in critical care.’
Allegedly one of the protesters, Justin James Bridges, an ASL interpreter for Occupy Portland General Meeting, was savagely beaten and choked by the clothing around his neck by the police until he passed out.
