The Supreme court stated and UPHELD the right of the "Citizen" or lawful AMERICAN, to not only protect himself/herself but gave the okay to use deadly force AGAINST a police officer who acts outside reasonable force. If there was no need for this officer to attack this woman, the crowd should have pummled him to death!!!

The police are out number 20:1 if not more. The only people who were getting hit were the ones in range. That means that the people were not smart enough to move away from the clubs, or the cops were in a postion that they would have gotten overran and hurt if they didn't keep the people back. The cops were doing their jobs and wanting to get back home to thier spouces and kids. Are people really saying that they would let a mob of people around them to attack them?
WTF. Cops were attacked by a mob? No. The police clearly instigated it.
The students were standing there peaceable & were using their First Amendment right to assemble.
You know I'm right.edit on 10-11-2011 by susp3kt because: (no reason given)

Then it will escalate..................hurt or kill a few police and it will escalate and if it gets too violent with too many regular citizens fighting back, you're looking at the possibility of the national guard, the military and marshal law being declared.
Again, at this point, there is no country much less the citizens of The United States of America that can match the fire power of our military should they become involved by Presidential Order.
The ethical oath for police officers is taken by all police officers on completion of the Diploma in Police Studies. The oath is normally taken at the Police School in the presence of the National Police Commissioner. Family members, friends, teaching staff and other representatives will also be present.
The ethical oath was introduced at the beginning of 2001.
The oath reads as follows:
Oath concerning the professional ethics of police officers
I DO SOLEMNLY DECLARE UPON MY HONOUR AND CONSCIENCE THAT I WILL ACT AT ALL TIMES TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY AND KNOWLEDGE IN A MANNER BEFITTING A POLICE OFFICER
I WILL PRESERVE THE DIGNITY AND WILL RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF ALL INDIVIDUALS
I WILL DISCHARGE MY DUTIES WITH INTEGRITY AND WILL PROMOTE UNDERSTANDING AND CONCILIATION
I WILL EXERCISE MY AUTHORITY AS A POLICE OFFICER IN THE MANNER INTENDED BY THE LAW
I WILL FAITHFULLY OBEY THE ORDERS OF MY SUPERIORS AND WILL BE READY TO CONFRONT DANGER IN THE LINE OF DUTY
I WILL ACT WITH HONESTY, COURTESY AND REGARD FOR THE WELFARE OF OTHERS, AND WILL ENDEAVOUR TO DEVELOP THE ESPRIT DE CORPS
I WILL ACT JUSTLY AND IMPARTIALLY AND WITH PROPRIETY TOWARDS MY FELLOW OFFICERS
I WILL CONSTANTLY STRIVE TO HONOUR THIS OATH IN MY SERVICE AS A POLICE OFFICER
I often think the same, although I think there might be 4. There are the masters, the slaves, the hippies, and the loners. If we were to divide up territory, the masters and the hippies would rule 2 lands. The salves would wind up where ever they were before, as they have no real opinion. The loners would go wherever they want. If we were ever able to split the hawks and the doves, the doves are ironically going to need some heavy protection. See you in Woodstock.

Maybe if people wouldn’t put themselves in a situation where they’re going to get hurt, than this problem wouldn’t have occurred in the first place. “Violence begets violence”. Stop provoking, intimidating, threatening, throwing rocks/bottles, etc., etc., etc., and problem solved!
When a protester hits an officer in the head with a bottle or rock, do you pull the officer to the side and shelter him/her when he/she is hurt?
I cannot find the video, but there was one where an officer got hit with a projectile by a protester. Everyone in the crowd yelled….”yeah, take that bitch, hit him again, go cry to momma, what a baby, etc..
You will have some bad officers, but NOT all of them are bad! Of course when you are in danger or hurt, you will call 911 for assistance. Maybe the police need to stop helping people. You can’t have it both ways! Very hypocritical…

Not true. That is a lie. They were warned they could not stay overnight and they chose to violate that. It could not be more obvious it was staged so they could cause exactly what happened. Believe me, nobody is being fooled but fools. The First Amendment does not protect the right to occupy private property. You need to slap whoever taught you such nonsense. Do any of you understand the difference between private and public property. Is the education system really that bad? Must be!

that may be true and it would take the entire country to wake up to the bullcrap going on and to say enough is enough already. Forget OWS it should be END THE FED and the IRS TOO!! While Andrew Jackson rolls over in his grave we submit to tyranny.
No need for the IRS nor any other government created corporation. BE RESPONSIBLE and live and let live.
Why people can't get it into their tiny little heads. Think about how people lived 100 years ago...200 years ago, we can live like that today even WITH all the technology. WE HAVE DOMINION over the earth and all the resources, WE own it by BIRTH RIGHT. Corporations ARE GRANTED existence BY the PEOPLE....as are governments...they should bow to the people and do our bidding. Sadly most of the populace does not get it. Just say NO!!!!
