lordjupiter: Ok, so let me get it straight...there's NOTHING wrong with the system or the government and these smelly hippies need to shut up (to hell with their rights under the 1st Amendment) and just DO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT/COPS SAY ... but the government is also oppressive and can't be trusted because they'll send the police and military after us any day now, so Tea Partiers need unlimited guns (2nd Amendment) to protect themselves from that same government....that they also protested against....but that they support when macing hippies....but don't trust.....but that doesn't mean the hippies are right....or something.

Don't you guys get it, man?

The Occupy Movement makes the Powers-That-Be scared and when they get scared they send in their jackbooted thugs. Attack a bank? That's a beating. Exercise your right to protest? That's a beating. March peacefully in solidarity? That's a beating.

You know why the TEA PARTY didn't get the cops sicced on them because they <b>are</b> the Establishment. They are a front for the Koch Brothers, and are used to consolidate power for the right wing Capitalists.

Occupy is about Freedom. The Tea Party is about racism and crushing the working man.

That's why the unarmed woman in this picture is getting brutalized by the police in riot gear.

Noah_Tall: I'm undecided. Give me unedited video of what led up to the incident and what followed and then I'll make a decision. Remember this?

[www.trbimg.com image 580x326]

Everything in the news was claiming that they were peaceful protesters and were only blocking the sidewalk. What actually happened and you can see it on the full length video is that the police were removing their tents and some protesters tried to stop them. Those protesters were arrested. When the cops tried to escort them away a group of protesters surrounded them completely blocking them in. They then started to chant "If you let them go we will let you leave."

So I'm a bit skeptical when I hear that protesters were being completely peaceful and doing nothing that deserved pepper spraying.

'Iconic'? According to who/m? Some dipshiate reporter working the police bear?

Idiot.


What's a "police bear"? Is that like the cop from the Village People? Or is it an actual bear, like a super-scary police dog? Neither sounds very good.

Raharu: kwame: Raharu: I bet that officer felt very Threatened by her.

Good point. He should have just stood there and argued with her.

It's not the officers job to argue or debate with her. He is there to respond with appropriate force to ensure public safety.

He's also head to toe in body armor, and carrying a riot shield, and like has more physical strength due to his much higher body mass.

He must have a very small dick to be so threatened by her as to pepper spray he in the face let alone directly in the mouth. The appropriate response would have been to push back harder on his shield.


Clearly the problem wasn't what she was saying or how she was saying it, it was her immediate threat to destroy the entire city due to a lack of near-death incapacitation.

Don't blame the cops...how would you feel if you sat around all day writing tickets for speeding and broken parking lights, and no chance to unleash any of your weaponry on anyone?  I mean, everywhere they go people are putting away bongs and acting nervous.  The only people they can trust to relax around them are other cops!

Please, think of the bored, trigger-happy cops.  If you care about dead kids in CT and starving kids in Africa, you have to care about these heavily armed and armored policemen and their emotional needs, too.

I guess that peace sign isn't doing much good now, is it, hippie?

Why didn't she just hold up her Macbook Pro to deflect the pepper spray?

Nem Wan: A court of law has a predetermined bias in favor of the law and therefore someone who disagrees with the fundamental premise that the law should be followed is not going to get a fair hearing.


Or: you don't get a mouthful of pepper spray when you follow the directives of law enforcement.

For some reason, things like this never happened at the Tea Party rallies. I wonder why.

The Tea Partiers acted all hurt and oppressed, but they were never actually hurt or oppressed.

BunkyBrewman: ...or he's trying to pull her back.


You believe your reality, I'll believe mine.  

In truth, I know he wasn't holding her there as a shield.  A camera catches a moment in time, and he could have been pulling her back, holding her, giving her a back rub, or any number of things at the time.  It's just funny to think of some guy going "oh shiat!" and ducking behind the nearest tiny woman.

Also, look at the jackass behind her.  It looks like he is holding her arm.  Almost like he pulled her in front of him.  Nothing like a human shield with a mild resemblance to Hermione Granger.
