Why was this woman from Occupy Our Homes Atlanta tased? Because they can.

It's the second day of the action that brought the Home Defenders League and allies in the Occupy movement to rally at the “Bring Justice to Justice” event at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. Dozens of underwater or foreclosed homeowners were arrested in non-violent civil disobedience.

They're still holding a vigil at the Department of Justice. This OOHA resident fighter was tazed and violently arrested this morning while peacefully protesting at the Department of Justice. She was there with others demanding that Eric Holder and the DOJ prosecute and jail bankers for their economy-crashing crimes.

Can you help us out?
