Not prrotesting a system that is only a "free-market" in name and has made us all peasants/surfs would be absurd.
If you think Washington D.C. is running the show, then you need to wake up my friend.
The world is ran from NYC, especially Wall Street.
"Money talks and B.S. walks" The money is in NYC and the B.S. is in D.C.
The people doing this are real patriots. I am as proud of them as I am of our soldiers who signed on on the behalf of the people, even if they have been misused and abused by TPTB.

Would you not agree that the entire way this country is operated needs to be stopped, rewritten and reinstated?

The reason the cops are called out is because downtown NY is pretty much THE busiest place on the planet. If the protests are blocking traffic - both vehicular and pedestrian - then effective operation of the city itself stops.
While I may or may not empathize with the protestor's agenda, this is just a blitz to try and gain as much media attention as possible.
What exactly are you even protesting? There seems to be no consistant agenda or actual action the protests would like. It's ideologues and/or board youth that have no jobs just "protesting" Wall Street?
WTF is that exactly? What is the point? "We want rich people to know we're not going to take it anymore"?
What about the poor single mom who's a receptionist for Mr. Wall Street but can't get to work because you're blocking the streets?
Better yet, why isn't this happening in Washington DC? Why not march on the White House? They're the ones that "bailed out Wall Street" after all? They took your money and gave it to the "rich" people...
I'm also sick of hearing whiny girly men and chicks screaming like they're being skinned alive every time a cop gets near them with their iPhone camera rolling.
"Occupy Wall Street" = "Board Attention Whores" looking for YouTube hits.
