Look the the protesters were ORDERED to leave the park buy the Mayor and Police. They failed to comply and the police started moving in to push
the people out of the park.
Yeah.. so? What if they were ORDERED to get on a train to a concentration camp? Or if they were ORDERED (see what I did there?) to kill their kids?
'They were ordered' indeed..
The anarchists in the group started throwing bottles and rocks at the police, hence the police responded with non-lethal weapons (tear gas and
rubber bullets and rubber bullet grandees, and flash bangs).Granted under certain conditions non-lethal weapons can kill and cause serious injury but
they are not designed to kill out right.
If the anarchists started throwing stuff, then suppress the anarchists - don't target everyone.
Yes the police in this video threw a flash bang at a group of protesters and yes there was an injured person among the crowd. They would have been
better off leaving the man where he was and allowing the police to take him in to custody and then having EMS treat him.
Nonsense, no justification provided here. 'They would have been better off' if the police had let them help the guy out, instead of hitting them
when they were down.
Remember it is the duty and responsibly of the Police and Local Officials to maintain order.
Whose order? That's propaganda rhetoric - It's their job to protect the American people.
The mayor pull there permit, after that the protesters should have packed it in and gone home and tried again another day.
A permit to protest? The whole point of a protest is that you do it on your own terms.. The government doesn't usually take kindly to being
criticised. Do you really think the civil rights movement would have gotten anywhere if they did everything on the governments terms?
Anyway, I don't support OWS or any of the Occupy movements - it's a shame they weren't able to organise a more focused and relevant protest
movement. However, everyone living in a 'democratic' society deserves the 'right' to protest - especially when your government makes such a big
deal about how ethical and moral they are. And especially when your government starts wars and meddles in foreign countries, under the guise of
'liberating the people' of that country from 'tyranny'. They have a lot of nerve.
