So I was just looking at the internet and discovered this recent news from Germany. But apparently the police are walking with protestors, helmets off, outside the banks. And boy 20,000 people are quite loud! Check out the youtube video yourself.

There is also a small writeup


How about this! From Occupy Frankfurt. May 19, 2012. The German police took off their helmets and marched with the protesters- clearing the way for them. The police coming over to serve and protect the people... Blockupy Frankfurt. Police are escorting. Reports of an estimated 20,000+ protesters. Nice to see their faces.... and their humanity coming through... #blockupy. Frankfurt German police officers escort an anti-capitalism protest march with some 20,000 people in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, May 19, 2012. Protesters peacefully filled the city center of continental Europe's biggest financial hub in their protest against the dominance of banks and what they perceive to be untamed capitalism, Frankfurt police spokesman Ruediger Regis said. The protest group calling itself Blockupy has called for blocking the access to the European Central Bank, which is located in Frankfurt's business district.

Those damned police will probably just crap on their own cars, sell drugs to homeless rape victims and start their own National socialist workers union right there at the protest!


Sorry I couldn't help it! How will the naysayers pass this off as just another average Occupy protest? Cops and their neighbors standing up for their futures......it's about time!

I pray this happens in America.
Police could earn goodwill by this one simple gesture.
Not much to add, it's just a great thing to see!

Couldnt these "protesters" do something more constructive with their time....Like get a job....
or even if that doesnt fit their ideology, spend this time starting a non profit and lobby your point through political channels like an adult.
Mob protests are simply that...and imho serve no purpose once the initial establishment of said protest.

My advice to these people is to channel their energies into more constructive activities.
Like bathing and working for a living.

Ultimately, when it all comes crashing down, the police EVERYWHERE will be doing that. At the end of the day, they are just like everyone else... bills and mortgages to pay, families to feed etc... And when there are no tax dollars coming in, there will be no paychecks going out. Simple math. I think that some of them are starting to understand that already.

There was a thread on this in mid may when it happened. Hardly 'breaking news'. And, as explained in those earlier threads, the cops weren't 'siding' with protesters. they are escorting a march, no different than any other march. They just have their helmets off.

Unless you think anytime a cop isnt actively beating someone they are 'siding' with them?

Talk about low standards.

Your statement is ... Well I'll keep it friendly, ignorant.

Ok look Newt, all of us have differing viewspoints, and differing ideas about getting things done. Yes arguing your point endlessly for 18 years to get less than half of what if fair is one route. However, as has been shown countless times in history, somtimes it takes a rap on the nose to get the point across.

Talking to people that won't listen is pointless, however it has been my experience that a little physical agression works wanders at expressing the point, that this is the line in the sand. When you cross it, we are done talking about it.

I mean use your head, there is a reason the cops don't talk criminals back to the light. Why armies don't talk their problems out. There is a reason that the threat of force is behind every law. Talking your problems out only works when both sides are willing to listen, to compromise, to lose a little to gain a little. This isn't tv, in the real world, talking mostly only leaves you madder, and with less than you started with. Showing up in person, in force, MAKING those that hve wronged you for no reason at least acknowledge that you are just as human as they. Letting them know, the talking is over unless you make right your wrongs.

Only cowards and political/lawyer types rely entirely on talk, real men take action, do somthing about it. Only a retard would deny the obviousness of the world around them, this is not a perfect world and never will be. In the real world only force or the threat of force can protect you and yours.

Just my take, but I have never seen a single other animal then man expect to talk their prey onto their plate, and then act completely shock that the prey would actually throw a blow in defense.
