I hope we just keep perspective on this. It isn't Texas and it's not this cop to be angry with. A few weeks ago? Sure... That was true. Now though, Department of Homeland Security and the Incident Command Centers at the Hoover Building in Washington are coordinating and directing the attack and systematic dismantling of OWS.
Those are Obama's people..and they're just down the street from his Office. Hence..in a very real way that Truman understood (The Buck Stops Here, fame...) Obama is the one standing there saying this. If he didn't agree, he could absolutely stop this with a wave of his magic pen. He is sure doing plenty of other things, with absolutely no regard to state or local jurisdictional issues, so this wouldn't be anything new to put a screeching halt to.
So....... Decamp the cities and leave the parks and plazas. Don't wait for March 12 for nice weather and sunshine. Get to D.C. now and BEFORE the energy drops from the movement. Give the Obama's as merry a Christmas as their leadership or LACK of it has given so many millions of us this year. He deserves nothing less.
Let him gaze out his window past the "Holiday Tree" or whatever they call it this year and see an endless sea of tents and protesters in all directions for the New Year to dawn on. Let's see him babble about 3 hour limits when the crowd to say that to is outside the White House, not far away in a fly-over state he can safely ignore.

No, this people should be angry with this police officer. As a police officer she should be aware of the constitution. And i bet she does. So i'm sure she knows what she did was violating these peoples rights. Even if she is just following orders, brave people know when to change. This is like saying not to be upset with the nazi gaurds who were just following orders throughout the holocaust.
