How about you read some of the articles and find out just how much crime is taking place in OWS. Also, there are plenty of sources here depicting the COVER UPS of crimes in OWS.
You seem intelligent, can you tell me why you aren't 'occupying' the REAL enemy? Maybe you can help direct the OWS masses to the true culprit of our countries demise: the FED! If you guys occupied the fed you would have my complete support, and that of many others. By demonstrating in locations that hold little meaning your hardly focusing your attention on the real enemy of freedom... EDITED/ADDED: And you realize that 'wallstreet' is staffed by the proles, the real power brokers arn't working on 'the street' busting their hump 50+ hours a week to provide for their families like you. The 'top dogs' are enjoying their pent house and big time corporate office, not feverishly working to get by...Please refocus on the Fed, not fellow Americans. The wallstreet brokers and call agents certainly aren't the '1%'

Who do you think owns and runs the FED ? It the major banks and Corporations. I agree with you that the FED is a major part of the problem and a large reason so many countries are in the financial crisis they're in.
But the FED is just a mask for the many Banks and Corporations who back it. The FED is not a target because all they do at those buildings is print money. The people who control the FED do not do their dirty work in those buildings. They do it in Washington DC and Wall Street and behind closed doors at gatherings like the Bilderbergs.

The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted from August 14th-20th, 1971, by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. It was funded by a grant from the US Office of Naval Research and was of interest to both the US Navy and Marine Corps in order to determine the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners.
