Just saw this as I was headed off to bed... Sorry if I offend anyone with Occupy these days but what in the heck were they thinking?
S/F on bringing the story but FAIL on these two people for bringing THAT into a Residential neighborhood. I'd have gone ballistic with Occupy STL if
they even considered a thing like this while I was a member and the police were confrontational. I looked this place up of Google Earth, as other
stories have the address, and there are apartment blocks on that street with a Church a block over. The whole area is Residential with play sets
visible by what I could see and within range of that.
It's bad enough that people were bringing their kids into the combat camps that had confrontation as a fact of life (as opposed to the majority which
didn't have any confrontations until the very end of the 2011 protest season) but this is bringing confrontation INTO other peoples front yards and
where kids totally removed from Occupy live.
This IS about Occupy because that line of cops with the non-Lethal riot guns wouldn't be all set and dressed for success with ANY other protest group
on the first contact. Only Occupy brings that response as a sure thing, anywhere in America now and as a 100% predictable outcome.
