Your on the wrong side of the revolution.
How in the world did you let yourself get so brainwashed by the big corp. and big banks?
You threatened the Marine Corps and disrespected them after all they try and do for you?edit on 27-10-2011 by LoneGunMan because: (no reason given)
No arrests have been made in the three months since Jose Guerena was killed by a SWAT team during a raid of his home that officials said was part of a complex drug-trafficking investigation involving numerous people.
As an ordinary citizen i would have to say they did it to my brother too.

The more I read about this, the more I feel the actual importance of this one man and the symbolism he represents.
This was one occurence I am sure no one thought of when this all began to play out.
What happened to this one man could very well change the results of this whole movement.
I now truly believe that when we look back, as informed people, we will remember what one thing changed the event from being almost dismissed and ridiculed to being taken very seriously.
The Scott Olsen incident will go down in history, and one day we may be telling the young people what happened, and that we lived it.
Jordan was asked about the use of force, specifically what weapons were used by OPD. The department has “no rubber bullets in its inventory,” he said, adding that reports of flash-bang grenades were actually CS (tear gas) balls.
Meanwhile, a young African-American male held up a soda bottle filled with rubber bullets he said he had collected off the streets - which appeared to confirm they were used by one of the agencies involved, if not OPD.
Jordan also was asked why OPD had an LRAD, or sonic cannon, a weapon which is not legally allowed to be used on American citizens.

85 people were arrested, that's what I read in the paper, so the crackdown was definitely ordered.
My only question has to do with this claim of "unlawful assembly", what consittutes that? If people are gathered together in a peaceful demonstration on the streets of any American city, is that ILLEGAL?

Lol. Thats funny. Everyone gets riled up when a veteran gets pissed on by the cops, but no one cares when a woman who was doing nothing more than minding her own business gets pepper sprayed in the face by a cop for no reason other than excersicing her right to a peacable assembly. Is that not hypocracy or what?
