What an asshole. Throwing batteries at cops, running up to them and stealing one cops hat? Dumbass is lucky all he got was a bump on the head.

But hey! He got laid though. That's all athat matters.

On Thursday, Watts stood atop a wall inside Zuccotti Park and tossed objects - including a AAA battery - at cops standing outside the barricade along Liberty St., police said.

Suddenly, the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Watts charged the officers and snatched a hat off the head of a deputy inspector, cops said.


Kid, I'm glad you got your noodle wet and all, but doing shiat like this will not help you in your search for a job, or help you keep a clean fresh face after the police beat your ass.
 
2011-11-18 09:47:04 AM  
He was taken to Bellevue Hospital and later charged with assault and grand larceny.

Grand larceny? What's the going rate for a cop's hat these days?
 
2011-11-18 09:48:41 AM  
I look forward to the follow up story on when he loses his prison virginity.
 
2011-11-18 09:50:11 AM  
I'll bet he doesn't even know what he's fighting for.

He stole a cop's hat. The cops stole his pants. Fair trade.

This camping in Zuccotti park shiat was started by a 23 year old virgin. How does that even happen nowadays?

//They still make you?

He was also at Occupy McDonalds

BRANDON WATTS, 19:
I came here because it felt like something I could help out with. I've been arrested eight times so far this protest. I have a bruise from the Brooklyn Bridge march. I caught cops on a bad day, a bad week, and they did stupid stuff. The police threw me over the barricades. Literally, they just picked me up and tossed me, but I got away.

I'm doing well now, though. I drank six Four Lokos with Core, a beer or two. And then we ordered an iced mocha and two chicken fingers and large fries. I lost my virginity today. I was amped for it.

The story:

Suddenly, the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Watts charged the officers and snatched a hat off the head of a deputy inspector, cops said.


Interpretation:

A cop's hat fell off his head while swinging a billy club at Watts.

"The protester who busted his head open during a bout with cops..."

I doubt if he busted his head open I surmise he had some assistance.

-- On Thursday, Watts stood atop a wall inside Zuccotti Park and tossed objects - including a AAA battery - at cops standing outside the barricade

OMG, assault with a deadly weapon!

-- Suddenly, the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Watts charged the officers

Roid Rage! That guy's a behemoth!

-- and snatched a hat off the head of a deputy inspector, cops said.

"Counting coup" on a opposing warrior who's well armed and in formation with his buddies isn't the brightest idea, buddy.

-- Cops caught him as he ran back into the park, but he began to fight back, police said. He was wrestled to the ground and busted his head on the concrete, causing a gash to gush blood down his face.

Yeah, sorry - I fully support our side in this class war, but this kid's a total moron.

"Brandon lost his virginity today - not to me," Core Jones, 20, told the magazine on Oct. 23.

I can imagine her horror when she started that sentence, then realized people would think that SHE had banged him. Notice the "-" mark?

Yeah. The cop held the baton while Watts swung his head at it.

he's been sleeping in a park for 2 months. I don't think "look for a job" is at the top of his to-do list
 
2011-11-18 01:20:35 PM  
what bugs me about the occupiers getting rowdy with cops is that the cops are essentially doing their jobs and are also essentially part of the "99%".

i work in boston and yesterday as i was getting ready to head home i looked out the office and there was a huge march going by. they cops infront of and behind them. protecting them from the many many many many many massholes who were getting ready to head home but couldn't get anywhere because they were marching down a major street that leads to north station/95/etc.

anyway i don't remember what my point was. i guess that's cool that the kid got to occupy someones vag.

Yup, not helping.

To be fair, he sounds more like a Anonymous Anarchist type, than a normal OWS protestor. Get blackout drunk and break shiat to be anti-conformist is their moto.
 
2011-11-18 01:23:00 PM  
Yeah I'm not against the occupy movement by any stretch, but this guy sounds retarded.
 
2011-11-18 01:23:01 PM  
The story's not over until the woman who showed him his special purpose is routed out and thrust into the glamorous Occupy spotlight.

2011-11-18 01:27:18 PM  
Is the public still fer OWS or are they agin it now?

Seems like its moved beyond "Hey, those guys are right!" point and into "Those f*ckers are still at it?"
 
2011-11-18 01:27:44 PM  
"I roundhouse kicked [one] in the balls," he said. "I got only two black eyes, and they got carried out with handcuffs and stretchers."

Does anyone else suspect this kid is some sort of pathalogical liar? He sent two guys to the hospital, got two black eyes (only two, not three), and 'roundhouse' kicked one in the cajones? You don't roundhouse kick that low. You straight kick the marbles, with a good snap at the knee to really drive the top of your foot home. This guy is an idiot, plain and simple. Like they always say, there's a thin line between brave and stupid, and this guy is just all stupid.
 
2011-11-18 01:28:20 PM  
So before his misguided rage against the machine, he was a 20 year old virgin?

Loser.

//They still make you?


He is the 1%.

make me some tea: I'll bet he doesn't even know what he's fighting for.


He's protesting against equality and change. He doesn't like the way the government is allowing people to be able to utilize their various degrees and job market into the society without having to be uproared by the fear of what the government is putting on them everywhere they go making it where they can't focus on getting a job and getting through school without worrying about whether or not they'll be able to make it home without something happening to their serenity and their peace.

Occupy Atlanta has made this perfectly clear. Try to keep up.

I read in another thread that NONE of the OWS protesters have done anything to provoke the NYPD. Interesting.

Congrats on losing your virginity in a tent at Hepatitis Park.

Provoke the police and then complain when they beat the shiat out of you? Someone needs a lesson in cause and effect.

The pic was all over the internet yesterday with speculation that the cops had beat him up for no reason or that the cops had beat him up for kicking a barricade, according to one supposed bystander. TFA explains who the kid is and what really happened (well, you know; what the press wants us to think happened). Think of it as a human interest piece.
