What disturbs me about that video are the 'paparazzi' taking pictures of those being arrested like they were!

so I have been watching for this since august. The news here was silent for the most part about it, and when it all started they tried to down play it. We are just now getting images on local news and national of what happened last night.
Besides the cops being surrounded and having to evac on one occasion, there were many police officers that received beatings. It turns out that the people were not the only ones getting lumped up. There are a couple of videos surfacing on the news of cops being beaten, their gear being striped form their hands, riot shields flying, batons being practically handed over to the crowds.

if this happens here it'll be because people want the government to do more, and not because they want the government to step down.
our population is an idiocracy

This is so awesome. Oh how I wish the day would come where Americans would wake up and follow suit.
We held an END THE FED protest this last Saturday and it was just so appalling that the whole block and surrounding streets weren't there with us...the people are so docile..
At least we got this awesome picture out of it

This is a bad start to begin a discussion.
The first Billion-dollar bailout package was from Bush close to 2008 election.
Obama did another round and the total is at Trillion-level.
No party is innocent, bipartisan corruption.
It came out last year that JPMorgan profits from the supposed welfare of food stamps that Republicans love to attack.
Obama won't prosecute Goldman Sachs, with the excuse of "insufficient evidence"
Did Republicans defend the population against foreclosures from their predatory bank allies?
Welfare programs dependence argument is bad too, the economic/financial policies and regulations[lack of] made the conditions to make it necessary.
We are at a point of false polarisation of Democrat and Republican sides...

Funny thing is most european news portals also do not mention either Spain or Greece. Very interesting. Stupid, but interesting. Didn't know one could think hiding such info from public is possible in 2012.
