This was EXTREMELY stupid what that woman and all those other people did. And now because of this woman and all the other participants OWS now has an even more dark image..... I would not bet on a moving train to stop even if I support OWS.

Child endangerment to say the least....I cannot imagine be so irresponsible as a parent.

Children are not tools to be used as leverage.

KySc5, Yes, You're Correct, OWS needs to Police It's Self, They need to have some sort of control over Stupidity. Who's in control? These people make the movement Null and Void, No Substance.
You Know, The others are adults,,, Not Smart Adults,,, But Adults!!

Wow, just WOW.

When I heard her justification for doing it, that she didn't think someone driving a train would just plow through a bunch of people I was flabbergasted. Trains can't stop that quickly.

I understand the reason for OWS even if they can't express it well themselves, but putting someone who has so little understanding of the physics of stopping a train on camera is really detrimental

You know one of those moments when you feel your faith in humanity leave you? Yeah? That just happened.

That woman is an idiot. This isn't a question of her part in OWS, this is just one person being a fool.

The Taliban use them all the time as human shields. So did the Chinese in Vietnam, the Japanese in WWII. It's perfectly normal to use innocents as human shields in time of conflict. Horrific and evil beyond words, but perfectly normal. Humans are horrid.

She's dressed like an Al Qaeda mom ready to sacrifice her kid for her selfish cause.

This is yet another example of why they (OWS) need to stop referring to themselves as the 99% because clearly they don't represent 99% of the general public.

Maybe we should pursue legal action against OWS for misrepresentation?

I don't see a child on the tracks and I don't hear the woman saying she put her child on the tracks, I hear an anchor saying she did this and then a sound bite of an interview of her saying she didn't think a train would plaw through people with children, not plow through children. I'm not saying she didn't do it and if she did, she's an idiot who shouldn't have kids. But I'm thinking this more slant, just my opinion.

Why is she wearing that head scarf?
Maybe she wants Time magazine to name her

The woman in the video is wrong for placing her child in a dangerous situation. I don't like the idea of any young child attending any of these protests.

But I think all of you people here who are calling her stupid are the real "stupid" ones.

Obviously the news cameras were there and it was a large organized protest. Their was no danger from a train.

Any trains would have been notified of the hazard and told to stop or reduce their approach speed to the minimum.

If you are going to watch a short video and make a bunch assumptions about a person, I think you should at least use an accurate description of the scenario.

None of those protesters were ever in danger of being hit by a train. That being said, none of these protests are a safe place to bring a young child.

What a friggin IDIOT!



OMG what the hell was she thinking?! She uses her child as a weapon?!?! That is exactly what she did. I hope nobody is going to sit here and defend her. I would NEVER put my child in that kind of danger, EVER.

Would this woman also sell her child for the right price cause she sure as heck put it in harms way where it could DIE for a cause!

People like this shouldn't breed. I dont know any mother who would do something like this.

This is sickening. I don't know about other places, but here, we were taught in school, from around the age of 5 that trains can't just stop on a dime. I guess it was wrong of me to grow up with the assumption that all adults know trains take a long time and distance to stop. I think thew OWS movement has lost any credibility it ever had due to potential Darwin award winners such as this so called "mother."

sheesh, the girl's name is Lotus. She is misrepresenting the Buddhist/Hindu community when she treats her own child with so little reverence. She looks too young to be a responsible parent anyway.

That's insane.

I support part of OWS, and despise some as well. Likely too happen when it's spread across the country, even world. But this is reckless, dangerous, sick, and whole bunch of other adjectives I'll refrain from using doing to the T&C.

Why should anyone care about what she's protesting, if she shows she doesn't care about the life of her own child? Disgusting.

How does this make us the dumb ones? You try to explain how this wasn't going to be a casualty, but IMHO this is stupid no matter what because everybody knows that their body pieces would've been scattered.

So you are basically saying since there was no train in sight, this woman was totally bluffing.

If that's the case then that's yet another reason to discredit OWS,
