If the protesters didn't want to leave and were trying not to leave despite police orders to do so, then why would they all pour out of the fence?
Are we to believe the protesters wanted to stay and get in a fight with the cops until someone tore the fence down, and then they all suddenly decided
at the same time to change their minds?
Or is it the simpler answer.....they were trying to leave but couldn't get past the cops until they made their own exit? No, no, you're right,
it's the more complicated answer---that they were trying to hold the park against the cops, which is why all four corners of the park had police
forming a barricade, you know, to keep them cozy and give them a big group hug. Then the protesters decided the cops were being too fuzzy and warm
for them, so they decided to tear down a fence and leave at the same time, because the hive-mind decided in 3/10ths of a second to give up the park
and settle for a march instead. The convenient exits via the street were just too friendly for them.
Really, people, when Tahrir Square happened, everyone supported the protesters even when a handful got rowdy and broke windows and vandalized stores,
because they were taking down The Mighty Oppressor, and they deserved their freedom and to determine how they wanted to govern themselves. It was
like a friggin' global Grateful Dead concert with all the love and respect pouring out for the protesters there. So why do we look at our own
people, our own fed-up oppressed masses trying to take down or at least change the tyrannical system they and so many others feel they're living
under, and allow this kind of blatant disregard for our Constitutional rights to assembly and free speech, without fear of being treated like an
automatic criminal for daring to take protesting further than the average useless day in a park holding a sign? The people breaking laws and
infringing on other peoples' rights and happiness should absolutely be held accountable. But to assume the majority of the protesters are just like
the small handful that suck is just ridiculous, and playing right into the hands of the establishment's desire for you to write off the OWS movement
and not join it. Mubarak was nowhere near as smart and capable as our machine here in the US; that's why he lost. Our machine does not like losing.
