The Police Brutality Coloring Book

"Artists in New York have created a colouring book inspired by allegations of police violence against Occupy Wall Street activists.

The Police Brutality Colouring Book is a 48-page DIY publication now on sale online, reports Wired.com.

Creator Joe 'Heaps' Nelson said he had been inspired to act after a "friend of a friend" had been pepper-sprayed in Manhattan.

He had also been affected by the infamous footage of a police officer casually pepper spraying protesters at the University of California.

"I wasn't directly involved with the movement, but I had been down there a few times and was sympathetic to the cause," said Mr Nelson.

"I am outraged at how the police are treating people and moral outrage is not my default setting... I knew I had to do something."

He got 46 artists to create black and white drawings, ranging from crude sketches to detailed illustrative art, for the project."
