I'm confused, why did they need police officers, riot police, swat officers, machine guns and dogs to deal with 2 dozen peaceful protestors.

How are people supposed to protest with such a show of force? Sadly there is no clear right to protest:

Sad world we are descending into. Peaceful protest served its purpose well though, highlighting the ludicrous response by contrast.
+Mark Holmes Yes it shows the police abuse of power but pretty sure it scares plenty of people into submission. You can see towards the end a few people leaving the protest when they see the riot police arrive.
At one point in the video I can hear someone shout "We are unarmed citizens!", that made me wonder if things would've been different if they were ALL armed...
