This isn't a protest. This is a non-violent (thus far) riot. Nothing more, nothing less. Any attempt this far to contain this and stop the crowds
from just running wild across streets that HAVE ACTIVE TRAFFIC traveling down them meets with the protesters destroying barriers and fences. Tear gas?
They get out gas masks....
I'm sure this is all great fun and cause for happiness to some....but this is a sign of tragedy to my eyes. The cops DO NOT lose. EVER. EVER EVER.
Let me say this again, for the slow and dim witted among us. THE POLICE DO NOT LOSE, EVER. If Occupy escalates, so will the police. In numbers and
hardware. The bay area has 10's of thousands of police ON DUTY at any given moment.....and can double that number if needed.
The call for bay area mutual aid went out a short time ago, which means cops around the bay area are now suiting up and piling into buses to outnumber
the rioters by as high a margin as is needed. If arrest is the plan, then every last human body on the streets will leave the streets in handcuffs and
NOTHING can be done to prevent that end result........resistance will just add injury where it didn't HAVE to be.
Want to be mad? Look to the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI with their Incident Response and Tactical Command centers in D.C.. That is who
is running this now and who is ordering your skulls cracked and your tails tossed into jail for however long it is this time.
C'mon.. Protest. Go to D.C.. Knock off this pointless street fighting with the cops. It isn't even cute anymore, it's just pathetic and infuriating
for law abiding people to watch. If this is meant to get public support...it's an EPIC FAILURE.
