    What about the cops that are still dehumanizing the communities that they are suppose to protect and serve? Look what happen in Ferguson, Missouri. One police lieutenant lost his job for called the Afro-Americans animals. Boward County Sheriff Department got sue because several years ago at a protest a woman (who was a lawyer) got hit with a bean bag round and after that incident, there was a video where the cops were laughing and clapping their hands after their sergeant stated that the protesters were scurrying like a bunch of cockroaches.

    Here is an article about people being dehumanized for exercising their constitutional rights http://www.alternet.org/activism/anarchist-and-communist-labels

    I think the author made it very clear that any dehumanizing, whether of the police or by the police, is harmful.
