Police Mace JPMorgan Chase Protesters


www.huffingtonpost.com

WASHINGTON -- Police maced several elderly protesters Tuesday at JPMorgan Chase's annual shareholder meeting in Columbus, Ohio, according to activists present at the event.

In telephone interviews with HuffPost, multiple protesters complained of an overly aggressive police presence.

George Goehl, Executive Director of National People's Action, which helped organize the protest, said he and several elderly protesters were maced as police attempted to move protesters back ... continue below

"There must have been 10 police for every banker," Goehl told HuffPost. "JPMorgan Chase, they don't only own the government. They own the Columbus police department."

The Columbus Department of Police did not respond to phone calls for comment on this story.

"It was insane," said Robin Acree, Executive Director of Grass Roots Organizing, a social justice group based in Missouri, who said she was still in pain several hours after the protest from being maced.


What the heck! Don't police know they are supposed to work for the people. There has been a great injustice done to this country by the money changers, yet, the bankers has not been brought to justice. In fact the police are just given a false hood of power by the money changers, when the real power lies with the people. If the police want justice, they should begin by bringing charges against the banks for robbing taxpayers and home owners. As Andrew Jackson state:


“I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the Bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the Bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out and, by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out.” – President Andrew Jackson

Yes, working for the people cuts both ways.
If those protesters were on private property, and told to leave, and did not comply then what would you expect?

I dont expect the police to mace elderly protesters. Seems a little over the top. But, then some people like to see the boot of the law come down hard on the elderlies face

Ok, so age defines physical capability?
What is elderly then?
And when they don't comply, then what?
Should the cops go hands on, and risk physical harm? Or pepper spray, which produces no long term affects?

How dare these people protest their betters? It's a good thing the police reminded them of their place. So where the police wearing their brown shirts and matching jackboots?

If they were compliant, then it was over the top and the cop should be fired, at the least.
If the protesters were not complying to a lawful order to disperse, then they asked for it.

When does the Federal Reserve Corporation have its "annual meeting"? I would like to protest then as well as the Bilderberger and CFR meetings! People working behind your back for whatever reason is not acceptable in a democracy.

Yep because of private property rights we should continue to let the bankers steal our wealth, take our homes and mortgage our country.

People like you are the ones that will say "well the protesters were somewhere they shouldn't be" and give absolutely no thought to why they were there and the validity of their causes.

So I guess the protesters in the 13 colonies should of obeyed because they were property of King George right?

Or that is war totally ok to hose, mace, and beat civil rights protesters in the 1960's because the were "on private property" or "blocking the flow of traffic" right?

Yeah deny ignorance SKERRAKO. I think it is highly ignorant of you to insult someone and call them a "government shill" simply because they understand the importance of property rights and expects people to respect those rights.

I would like to see you step foot on my private property and not leave when asked....

I would like to see a bunch of "government shills" protest on YOUR private property and not leave when asked and see how you deal with it...

People like you seem lost to me... On one hand you claim to fight for justice and the constitution, but on the other hand you are willing to step on the rights of others to get your way.... That is hypocritical... at that point you become no better than your enemy.

Go be a poser anonymous member elsewhere, because we won't stand for that here.

Skerrako got you the Fed meeting, here's the Bilderbergers

Bilderberg 2011 conference location and date revealed: from June 9-12, the Grand Hotel Kempinski in St. Moritz, Switzerland

So they'll set things up at the Bilderberg meeting and then jet to NYC for the Fed Meeting.

If I had done something illegal do you think the police would stay off my property because of my property rights?

If you did something illegal would the police have to wait until you left your property to arrest you? Of course not, they would bust in your door and drag you out. We (common people) cannot get away with even miniscule crimes yet the bankers of J.P. Morgan Chase get away with dozens everyday, and the regulators and police and courts do nothing. As the constitution says, the power and responsibility falls to us. Corporations are not people, despite the corrupt citizens united verdict. When the U.S. is broken into "free speech zones I bet people like you will be saying "well, they were protesting outside of a free-speech zone so it was right for them to be arrested". As the declaration of Independence makes clear: the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (as long as it does not interfere with anyone elses) is paramount. I would say that a bank robo-signing away peoples houses is violating all three of those tenants, more so than a group of people standing on a corporate park grass.

And that my friend is why property rights fall into the background in this particular case. Clear?

On to your next point about me being a "poser anonymous member":

While you sit in a room reading about the dismantling of our constitution and our rights, you denigrate me for promoting a RALLY TO DEFEND OUR RIGHTS? I will be out there, probably being shoved around by unruly riot police thugs as you sit here reading about it that night. Do not dare admonish me for doing what you most likely will not have the courage to do until it is too late. I know what it is I fight for, and I know why, don't think that I am blindly following anyone, the sheeple or anonymous for that matter.
