Occupy Wall Street - Day 8

Tell them where to stand, barracade them in, then pepper spray them in the face.

Update : A slo-mo version of the portion of the vid showing the unprovoked sneak attack on the women.

NY Daily News :
"A video posted on YouTube and shows uniformed officers had corralled the women using orange nets when two supervisors made a beeline for the women, and at least one suddenly sprayed the women before turning and quickly walking away."
Among the 80 -100 arrests, a PBS reporter was arrested for interviewing the pepper sprayed women.

Shades of things to come in the Excited States.

Fer cryin' out loud, they cheer when the number of state-sanctioned executions is mentioned in a political debate.

I guess we should expect barbaric behaviour by the officers of the law . . . .

If the economy craters again (which looks increasingly likely) there is going to be some major, major social unrest.

The liberals in Canada and the USA are showing themselves as useless as the liberal politicians in Weimar in the 1930s.

The Republicans are happily turning fascist. The left is larger than it was then, but doesn't have the analysis, or the fire.

But cops torturing women to defend the banksters on Wall Street? Those strutting buffoons are going to find themselves in a bad way if they don't learn some manners.

Perhaps short of what is happening to protesters in Yemen or Syria but still, that's pretty brutal intimidation tactics for peaceful protest.

What will happen when 100s of thousands angry citizens take to the streets? Will bullets be used? They were at Kent State.
