no offense, but the video in the OP doesn't show Violent arrest. when you use violent, i would expect some type of excessive bodily harm to a suspect during the arrest. ll it looks like (from the video) is only a cut finger.

now if he was jumped, beat up, arms broken, black eyes... etc... id consider that as violent.

BTW do you know if these protests are still going on or did they disperse?

Ok heres the back story:
The tarps were there protecting our stuff from the rain. As you may know, many protesters have been sleeping in this park.
When we came back from marching around Wall st. The cops decided they wanted to take away the tarps, but they wouldn't tell us why. So a few people laid down on top of the tarps so that the cops wouldn't take them. This is when the cops started picking those people up and throwing them out. As you can see at the 0:20 mark, that's a person getting thrown in the air by a cop.
We have permits, there's absolutely no reason for this to have taken place. The cops were just taking advantage our numbers that dwindled by the rain. They only did this to instigate us, because if they really had to take the tarps, they would've done it when most of us were away marching.

Most of these protesters have college degrees, they are all very well read and well spoken. They are not dead beats, they are dressed to get dirty not to impress the fashion police.

This is what democracy looks like.


HEAR HEAR!

This what democracy looks LIKE!

It seems you all have a different opinion of the word "violence" than most other Citizens.

Its funny to watch all you ATS'ers say funny things such as "we have the numbers" or "we need to start a revolution"

You do realize that all the opinions generally shared by ATSers are not at all agreed with by Society?

If WE needed a revolution, people would be pouring into the streets every day all across our beautiful Nation.

Did you ever think about that? Or did you just assume b/c all the members on this board agree with you, and the 4 friends you have outside of here might agree with you, that the rest of the nation does?

Did you ever think about the Americans that love our country the way it is? We have AK 47s, shotguns, m16s, handguns too ya know, and if ANYONE tries to mess with our country, your #ed.


You will never have a revolution because the PEOPLE don't want it nor need it.

I have never seen cops drag people out of a drug house on their face.....

I mean come on that one officer was build like ARNOLD and he was dragging that kid.....

LOL you need a permit..... Oh wait they had one....

This country is sooo Bass Ackwards.....

^Usually when they bring people out of a drug house its on a stretcher.

Protesting is dead in this country. It doesn't help anyone except the police in that they get to display force. Force is NOT violence. You can move something without being violent. These people just make the police look like they are in control.

mean seriously how can cops just do this crap and get away with it? How can other cops just stand there and watch it?


Because WE love our own enslavement.
We are too afraid to actually do what needs to be done.
Once that fear has been removed, things WILL change.

I completely agree that violence is sometimes necessary to achieve a desired result. Hell, doesn't this country use violence every signal day to enforce its policies; both foreign and domestic? The ones in power don’t really give a crap about the average Joe on the street and they sure as hell can careless about our futures or the future of our children. WE ARE SLAVES! So if we have to take to the streets and fight fire with fire, so be it. We need to wake up and reclaim or souls.

There actually was no permit obtained...it never would've been issued for a protest like this in the first place. That being said, the protest was tolerated much longer than I thought it would be, but you're right that the crackdown was inevitable, with or without permits/violent troublemakers.

Video of violent arrests ??

No offense to the thread poster but I've had worse happen to me at a Frat party. This is another reason why I don't take these "Protesters" or the people putting the info online seriously. This threads title and that video description are exaggerated. I've seen and been involved in some really ugly and violent exchangees with cops before.

That video was mild by comparison.

Force is needed for it to get through to these mindless cops. I can't stand being on the west coast and seeing this. I'd be all up their face with their tyranical laws. Here is a video that shows how oblivious cops are at the orders of their masters affect on citizens.
They need some cattle prods and rope for those police in Wall St.

Here's my motto: if you're gonna challenge the militia make sure you have your inhaler. STOP WHINING WHEN YOU GET ARRESTED!!! Stoicism has its virtue.

People just can't set up and camp out wherever they please, for however long they please. Society wouldn't work very well for very long with that going on just so kids can feel special and get some TV time.

If certain groups of people pulled the stick out of their ass, it certainly could.

Maybe this was all a test run to check the reactions.

I can only foresee this degenerating into another mindless cop hate thread.

Emphasis on another.

I mean seriously.

That's all I have to say.

Good day.

What an enlightened statement. We should turn them into us...you mean turn them it to slaves? Take everything from them? Take all their liberties in the name of freedom?

You just might have the right idea!

I'm going to assume that this demonstration had a legal permit, or this would've happened much earlier. I am further guessing that the permit expired last night, or this morning.

I really didn't see any police violence, no tasers, doesn't mean it didn't happen. It reminded me of the peacefull sit-ins of the '60 and '70, that did result in real violence. But this wasn't anything like those days.

Actually the Mayor of New York gave the O.K. for protests:

Mayor Bloomberg gives "O.K." to Anonymous protesters
www.abovetopsecret.com...


“People have a right to protest, and if they want to protest, we’ll be happy to make sure they have locations to do it,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sept. 15 at a press conference. “As long as they do it where other people’s rights are respected, this is the place where people can speak their minds, and that’s what makes New York New York.”

Actually the path should be...

1. Ask to change their ways.
2. civil disobedience.
3. crack their skulls.

That's how we founded the U.S.A. And we're obligated to do the same according to the Declaration of Independence... to throw of the despotic shackles and the like:


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
