Way too hard to tell who is under those masks, believe me Occupy doesn't want them around but how can they be stopped? It might help if the cops actually did their jobs and arrested the ones breaking laws especially when pointed out as opposed to kettling a bunch of people standing on a sidewalk exercising their 1st amendment rights.
I was just watching a woman livestreaming in Oakland screaming at them to go away, then yelled at the cops that if they want to make arrests to arrest them.
So frustrating. Didn't see any of those people in Boston today thankfully.

I agree with you 100%. I am just trying to make the distinction between the idea that everyone in a mask is a agent of the police state and not a real protestor. This is simply not true.
so potentaly legal but a possible grey area i found this site highly informitive actualy
Penal Code 459 burglary Penal Code 459 burglary is defined as entering a structure with the intent of stealing or committing another felony once inside.31 If, while someone is burglarizing your home or business, you attempt to defend yourself...and use reasonable force to do so...you will be entitled to an acquittal of any criminal charges (under California self-defense law). Depending on the circumstances of the break in, burglary may be considered a forcible and atrocious crime, entitling you to a presumption that you acted reasonably when you were confronted by a burglar.32 Burglary is also a good tie-in to the next section...

They struck a small art gallery, vandalized small restaurants, damaged cars of the everyday working people etc etc. ......
Have they said where they are sleeping and where they are a poop'n and a pee'n ?? During their camp out (wonder if they had smore's around the fire ) they were publically doing all that and it was a pretty stinky business. Is this thing of theirs a one day event or are they back in the parks camping out for free?

Plausible. I have seen videos like this. Still,like any germ,it should be weeded out. As soon as the mask goes on,they should get checked. Citizen arrest. Let the cops sort it out.

They look a bit too scrawny and dirty to be cops

To be clear, the people who were attacking small businesses WERE confronted by other protesters and regular citizens. These black-clad trust fund wannabes and their fbi handlers DO NOT represent the larger movement, and the larger movement does not support nor condone their actions, and never had.
But I agree, I'd like to see these guys all captured, unmasked, and identified. But that would require a level of violence that would likely create an even more hostile environment because some of them are cops.
