I don't know enough on it to go in depth on the story, but just looking at the two photos I'm not sure if it's the same guy (if that is what you are implying). I will admit I am only basing it on one attribute (though the one picture makes it hard to tell) look at the bottom of the ears. They are different.

As it has already been stated, this donation was reported in a news release on August 17th, 2011. It has nothing to do with the protests.

As I stated before, it's not like they were blindsided by this. J.P. Morgan is aware of the atmosphere, it is their business to be. The attitude that led to these protests was known wide and far for months before they happened.

I'll ask you what I asked earlier, why would a banking corporation give an unprecedentedly large donation to the NYPD coincidentally right before protests against them began.

Why would they do it at all?
It is their business to know the mood of the people. How do you think Wall Street works?

Funny how this story came out "Posted on August 19, 2011 at 11:20am by Tiffany Gabbay" This whole thing has been planned for a long time. And JP Morgan has been a target the whole time.

www.theblaze.com...



What, exactly, is a “US Day of Rage?” Well, on September 17th we may find out for certain, but until then, The Blaze is revealing what information does exist about this very nefarious-sounding campaign.

A US Day of Rage is the title given to a day of ostensibly “non-violent” civil disobedience orchestrated by a group of radicals — that reportedly include SEIU’s Stephen Lerner and ACORN founder Wade Rathke (who, coincidentally, formerly served as president of SEIU’s local New Orleans branch) — targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism. It’s worth noting that the title of the movement — if its intentions are indeed non-violent in nature — appears to contradict itself slightly.

But what is perhaps even more interesting than its title is who is allegedly behind the movement.

You may recall that back in March The Blaze exposed Lerner for stating his aspirations to destroy JP Morgan Chase and cause the collapse of the entire stock market.

Now, the US Day of Rage protests, staged by a collective of activist groups allegedly in conjunction with Lerner and Rathke, are planning the actual “occupation” of Wall Street September 17, complete with a tent city set smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan’s financial district. Similar protests are purportedly set to take place across the nation — and even world — at the same time. Some Day of Rage organizers are even calling on activists to squat in Manhattan’s financial district for months at a time.

People with lots of money give some of it to people with guns, to keep people with neither away from them.

It's the Pyramid of Capitalism!

Yeah.. some of the people in here aren't using their thinking caps. Like there aren't people with their ear to the ground for a banking corp like JP Morgan. You can't catch them off guard, it is their business to try to stay a step ahead.

How much of that money went to police departments though?
Police departments that would be keeping people that are protesting your company in line no less.

This isn't a year of donation. This is one instance of donating 4.6 million to the NYPD just before massive protests against them. Protests they knew were coming.

Well I do know that some of it went to local school districts. Oh no! The corporations are buying our children's brains!

So what? So JP knew that there was gonna be a protest. BFD! Do you come from a hamlet, because there are protests every single day in NYC, and this little protest was nothing to be concerned about. Give me internal memos that show JP was so threatened by this bunch of ragtags that it felt it needed to donate $4.6m to the NYPD.

$4.6m is chump change to corps.

You are really going to extreme lengths to try to make a story here, where there is none. Massive protests? Puh-leeeze!

Given the numbers you posted above it doesn't seem like chump change. It equals a good fraction of what some of those companies gave in an entire year and is near equal in the amount of the companies near the bottom of the list. You end up arguing with yourself here.

As usual you bring nothing to the table. This isn't a little protest. This isn't a "happens everyday."

400 people aren't arrested protesting every day in New York.

Protests don't close down the Brooklyn Bridge every day.

Protests in NY aren't recognized and mirrored in solidarity nationwide everyday.

Protests in NY aren't recognized and supported worldwide everyday.

If you are just here to troll and argue why not just leave rather than waste your type being wrong with every stroke of the keyboard?

WOW, how naive is this comment...

THIS donation has everything to do with these protests!

read this thread for more info Jack:

'Settling' Criminal Acts: When Government Wants Its Cut of Your Pie

Enron, Lehman Holdings, Goldman Sachs, KBR... Billions in bailouts, millions in CEO and top executive bonuses...

how can you not understand that at this point it is a protection bribe?!

I have rarely seen such defensive antagonism as you display. You immediately attack the person instead of the issues. Are you trying to frighten or intimidate me? Because I have every right to be here, and I will give my opinion on the matter regardless of what you say. Stop being so hostile, please.

This "massive protest" is a fart in a windstorm. They only managed to disrupt traffic on the Bridge, something that a single streaker could have done. And this "conspiracy" of buying protection that you are attempting to manufacture is just silly. Laptops? Why not buy them tear gas instead, for more immediate results?

Now having said that, let me say that I am not in opposition to the reasons for the protest. Wall St. is corrupt and in bed with the govt. But sadly, this protest has no clear message, no identifiable messenger, no co-ordinated effort. It was doomed from the start. And the JP donation was made long before the event. I find amusing your claim that there are groups whose purpose is to keep an ear to the ground for events like OWS. But you do have a vivid imagination.

If this turns out to be recent (I highly doubt it) then it doesn't look good for the peeps in the streets

So no this was done prior to Occupy Wallstreet apparently.

JPM might have had the foresight of what could be coming their way.

I hope this "donation" doesn't cloud the minds of the police force. They are still put on this earth to protect the common man... NOT the banks in appreciation bribes.

just another example of 'big business' owning wantever they want...speaking as a form 'law enforcment official' ..dont think for one moment that the NYPD will look at this a 'just another donation'....there is a reason that type of money was given to the 'pole-LEASE' and the NYPD will remember it when they are out there macing and clubing protester....

sometimes the best way to hide something is to be so blatent, so in your face.......uuhhhggg....'all hope is lost'

Hmm, after i read this thread it got me thinking...
what if yourself were part of NYPD? How would you react to this "occupy wall street" protest?
considering that you are aware of whats been going on in our country for decades now, and also considering that you have a family to house and feed.
