It's funny since some of the police officers are also within OWS.
I wonder what would happen.

1) What are your thoughts on it?

2) What is your Political views and what do you believe the outcome will be?

3) Do you believe this is relevant to the revolution in Egypt or do we fall short of hope?




1) It's now been exposed for what it really is....as Occupy CHAOS Movement.

2) In what areas? I don't know what your asking here and whether it relates to this "movement" or not.

3) No it's not. It's already fallen short because you can't call it a movement by purposly baiting police to attack you, or getting in people's faces and forcing them to join you. They've even turned on that "Professor Tomoe" president of ours, Obama.

What is occupying wall street all about? This video will tell you:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UKhqA4DRz4&feature=related they don't even know themselves. A bunch of youths with a dream, venting to society since their ideas are much too unrealistic to ever come true, so their protests are similar to a bum on the street asking for free, easy money. With this logic, our whole country would fall apart. Look at the damage already; "The Occupy Wall Street movement has cost surrounding businesses $479,400 so far, store owners said.
A Post survey of a dozen restaurants, jewelry shops, beauty salons, a chain store and mom-and-pop establishments tallied almost a half-million dollars lost in the 53 days since the Zuccotti Park siege began on Sept. 17" way to go, protesters, It was even on the news, some guy was dead in a tent for a week, and you naked hippies wouldn't have ever noticed, if not for the dutiful police pepper spraying you out of there.

Meh, I can't say I'm fully for the OWS movement nor can I say I'm against them. I believe they have a clear message or maybe that's just my interpretation. From what I see, they're against the current government system - no, not against capitalism, but the crony capitalism America became. In no way does this make them anarchists as Fox News and many other mainstream media criticized. They're merely expressing their freedom of speech and what is the government doing? Well, they're slowly pushing them back and taking away their rights one by one by limiting it. Lobbyists and big corporations basically own the government today. OWS voices against this. I guess I'm leaning towards supporting them.

I find the argument telling the protestors to find a job quite funny and maybe uneducated. First off, you cannot blame just the people for not being able to get jobs. The system is at fault too. Employers at this moment are laying people off and cannot afford to hire more employees.

Regarding pepper spray, police are not suppose to use them unless it's in self defense or riot control. Using it on peaceful protestors or civil disobedience is abuse of power and may be a felony.

Well, the police had urine and feces thrown at them by protesters, I think it was reason enough to spray them, let alone being attacked.At least its not a gun, I say.

I'd like evidence on the bold part, please.

I mentioned in my previous post of when cops are supposed to use pepper sprays - self defense or riot control. I'm not too sure on "rock pelting violence" but I believe cops are suppose to take that kind of treatment and ignore it. The same goes for insults unless it's a threat then they may arrest the person threatening them. In most of the videos I've watched along with news coverage of OWS, I haven't seem much or any violence* from protestors besides that one battery incident.

*I don't consider pushing barricades back as violence.

The "go get a job" remark is the most uneducated, ignorant thing anyone can even say about the movement. If that's your only response I suggest you go actually read or study said movement before embarrassing yourself. You set yourself on a higher stage than these people, but everyone else who understands the movement, and then reads posts or remarks like this that are being fed by the likes of Fox news get to laugh at how simply dumb you are.

I would stray from such a fallacy, but there literally is no other way to put it. You lie to yourself about the situation, or are blind to the obvious. And from there, you justify yourself in some messed up logic as being able to insult these people for their cause without proper inspection.

It simply comes down to if those are your opinions: You are dumb.

It's like people forget what America was founded on, what the hell the constitution is and what equal liberties/rights are.

A large amount of the people there are quite far from hippies as noted above.

Let me learn ya somethin, The Young Turks, Raw Story, any independent news coverage - watch it - it might blow your mind, but amazingly enough Fox might actually not be 100% truthful in everything they show on their media coverage! Amazing.


I appreciate your wording, good sir.

As for the feces and urine statement [which I witnessed on the news], I searched online, unfortunalty I found no articles cover this with the miles of polluted one-sided news found online, but I did uncover this:http://articles.cnn.com/2011-11-17/us/us_colorado-occupy-felonies_1_police-officer-police-car-felonies?_s=PM:US I agree with everything else you wrote, insults are no reason for the police to attack, but as you can see, half the time they're overwhelmed by literally hundreds of people hovering over them, they must enforce some superiority, because without fear, I'm certain more protesters would venture to attack them, which has been limited to only a few- but a few is just too many. I don't believe peaceful protesters are to be attacked, but when they challenge the police in numbers, I understand why the night-sticks/batons come in handy.
