When the hell did protesting turn into this:



Both the cops and the protestors are asking for it with behavior like that... it's never alright to resort to physical violence.

What an idiot, you would have to be nearly braindead to not realize that dozens of people are videotaping every single thing that happens there. Plus, when cops show up, everybody pulls their videocameras out just in case anything epic like that happens.

It was hard to see. The video came right on them right as he swings on then... But he swung pretty hard... I am having trouble finding justification for this cops actions...

Looks like a sucker punch

Looks like the protestors managed to pull her away from the cops...To which I say... GOOD.

It is just gross that the only aggressive ones I am seeing are the cops here....

I notice towards the end, the cop is hunched over with his hand on his face. Did he get hit to?

Also, what are they chanting at the end? It sounds like Shame?

It was a guy and I bet he was resisting arrest and the cop took him down. It's not a normal punch. Slo mo it could have been a strike on the shoulder or neck. The cops stance suggests martial arts take down.

I watched a slo motion vid on another thread. I watched it numerous times. Although he does make a fist, he raises his hand too high for it to be a typical punch. He has a wide stance which usually indicates a japanese styling. Tae Kwon Do usually has shorter stances.
But ya I guess it could be a "sucker punch".

Here's the other thread and watch is slo mo

Please tell me that you are not serious.

I've seen some interestingly absurd "opinions" surrounding OWS but this one takes the cake.

Everything is so blatantly fabricated from black and white "spectrums" when it comes from you. You fabricate the stance, and THEN formulate ideas, explanations and arguments; that's not how intelligent people analyze things. I know that the American education system would beg to differ, but holy Lord are you ever flailing here to support the conclusion that you came to before you even investigated to situation. This is a Tae Kwon Do take-down technique for arrest-resisters, that's really what you're going with? Which camera angle do you need? Nevermind, you oppose everything that OWS protesters do, so they deserve to get knocked out, right? They're obviously resisting arrest, "damn commies".

It's not as glamorous of course as in the Dojo but are you naive enough to think cops have not had any self-defense training. Geez and you are telling me I'm absurd.

yah here's a guy talking about the "fabricated" police training




Apparently you know nothing about real fabrication. Do the fakes ever know they are copies?


You obviously do not fully digest much of what I say. All you hear is the part where I talk about socialism. You must not have heard the part where I protest the PATRIOT ACT, or Bush getting us into wars. But tell me why is it ok now when Obama is bombing the crud out of countries to "help" them? You are the one who evidently does not see with clarity.

And due to my having watched several versions of this video and in slow motion and looked at some stills, and watched the way the other protesters are interacting, I would say yah the guy likely resisted arrest.
I'm real sorry that you want to believe the cops are just being evil and attacking people for the fun of it, but I'd say you are not viewing this with clarity.

Here is some grappling action. Later in the vid he says its jiu jitsu. It's similar to the Chinese Chin-na(grappling)(and also there's some hair grabbing, which is also taught in Jeet Kune Do)



more Chin-Na

Why should anyone be able to block traffic to someone
who just got off of work and is trying to get home
to there family??

I feel no sympathy, it is actually quite funny!!

The protester in the green shirt was pushing the cop
and got laid out, exactly what they were asking for.
This has turned into a circus fest..
Look the guy is clearly pushing the officer
the protester is grabbing the cops sleeve resisting
to get off the road..

He pushed he grabbed the officers sleeve, he got punched!!
The protesters were upping the ante.
You can not block the roads!!



edit on 14-10-2011 by popsmayhem because: (no reason given)

Yes because that would be appropriate in any situation.
If you pushed me, I'm aloud to punch you in the mouth, correct?
Not to mention the other hundred(s) of factors that come into play in this particular scenario.

Oh hes posted the same thing in all the threads on this.

He's obviously violent and applauds when this happens.. Your rights appear to be meaningless, and even in the heat of the moment a cop is allowed to break the law - and your jaw.

He's the future man... right on..

Yup, I got a nice chuckle out of it, who was the tool doing the screaming. LOL. Funny thing about these videos, they never show you what the girl did to provoke the officer, about two seconds before you get a brief glimps, but I'm sure she did something. And at the beginning they repeatedly gave a lawful order to get back on the sidewalk.


You're a sociopath, congratulations.

I see that we have fascists in the house, laughing and applauding the actions of the pigs.

I for one hope that the officer's name and address are leaked

Would you care to give us a working definition of fascism?

ok I'll start


Fascism ( /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology.[1][2] Fascists seek to rejuvenate their nation based on commitment to the national community as an organic entity, in which individuals are bound together in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood.[3] To achieve this, fascists purge forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.[3] Fascists believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong.[4] It advocates the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy (such as eugenics).[5] A fascist state's government is led by a supreme leader who exercises a dictatorship over the fascist movement, the government, and other institutions of the state.[6] Discipline and obedience to the leader is demanded by the fascist movement to followers and subjects of a fascist state and is promoted through encouraging comradeship and commitment of followers and subjects.[7] Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the fascist state.[8]

You think that Barack Obama, a slave to the banks and major corps is a 'socialist'. You should be the last person on this forum to define anything for anyone.

This is what a protest looks like. People will get hurt and things will escalate to violence. The police will be told to become more aggressive by their superiors. Pressure will be placed on the upper management to suppress the movement in any means necessary with immunity for officers. This will be a get out of jail free card for all of the riot police. They will be applauded for their tactics by their superiors and other officers.

This will be an "US vs. THEM" mentality. They already work for the system so they are not likely to question their intent. When they are forced to fire on a crowd they may start to question their superiors, but some will be motivated further after having tasted blood. This happens in war and the similarities are many.

I would expect this to escalate through this year and next. If there is not a total house cleaning and reforms in government the people will forcefully take back Washington. At that point UN forces and others will be fighting Americans on our soil. The stage is already set and forces are massing in certain areas. FEMA and Homelandobscurity already have their internment camps set up waiting for a population.

All of the training being done this year and the FEMA purchases are directly related to an understanding of trends by the politicians. They are going for broke right now trying to confiscate as much money as possible from the public coffers before their terms are up because they know they will lose this battle. They will not go quietly however, and will use every resource at their disposal including police and Homelandobscurity as well as National Guard troops.

I personally expect to be on a sailboat headed for Venezuela early next year with several hundred dollars in my pocket and not much else. I am tired of trying to convince dense people their leaders are lying to them. I am tired of contributing to the destruction of a once great nation of god fearing self-sufficient free thinkers. If this country is not completely overhauled from top to bottom it will not survive.

I only wish to lead a peaceful life with no restrictions by government or the corporations that control them. I only seek to be able to grow my own food and drink fresh milk from my own cow. I do not want genetically modified food or air polluted by radiation or chemtrail chemicals and heavy metals. I want to be able to use natural herbs and discuss their effectiveness openly without being threatened by drug companies.

I never thought I would be considering leaving the previously greatest country in the world. The current world problems begin right here with the IMF and CIA causing instability and war overseas. War is the primary objective of USA politics because it appears to be a lucrative business for those in high positions. Once again, follow the money.

The megalomaniacs ruling your country are untouchable and will not stop until there is nothing left. They are scorched earth fanatics and will never change. They are the cancer that has spread around the world and they live right here infecting everyone they come into contact with.

Stop feeding the system! The animals must starve.

NYC should just copy Israel's method of dealing with protestors.


Run 'em over with tanks.

Don't want to get crushed? Stay out of their path. Simple enough.

Just where are the "pigs"? All I see is Police Officers giving the protesters a lawfull order to return to the sidewalks, and the protesters ignoring them. The girl in the green shirt had to of given the Officer a reason to take the action he did.

this gives you a peek at what would happen if the police get violent or call in the military

heads will roll and all these protesters will do is take pictures and scream while they are beaten into submission

Do some people not read the thread before posting? It has been made clear since page 1 , that it is a man being hit, yet so many posters keep saying it's a woman. It may be tedious sometimes to read through every post but at least you can make sure that you are getting the facts right.
