    More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    (Reuters) - Police reopened the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday evening after more than 700 anti-Wall Street protesters were arrested for blocking traffic lanes and attempting an unauthorized march across the span.

    I used to look at crap like this and use it as validation that my theory of, what ever libs accuse conservatives of is in fact what they do. Remember, how libs in the media, and in here tried, and continue to try and paint Tea Partiers as "extreme", "Violent", or worse?

    Well, I don't recall any stories of 700 Tea Partiers being arrested...We'd better be prepared, these leftists, and libs, could very well bring violence when Barry is booted from the WH, after Obama's is done stoking the division campaign he is starting now.

    Not that I'm talking sides in this mess, but do you really believe that quote, "700 anti-Wall Street protesters were arrested for blocking traffic lanes and attempting an unauthorized march across the span" equates to "extremism and violence?"

    In other words do you believe in someone criticizes violence and extremism then they have no leg to stand on if they block traffic? And do you believe these 700 individuals are enough to paint the entire "liberal camp" in all its lose definition of membership as being the same in these regard?
    Personally I don't think the Tea Party is violent, little stupid yes but hardly violent or extreme, and frankly I think the same of these protesters from what I've seen of their spokesmen on TV and newspaper.

    Well then, you would certainly denounce those that paint the entire conservative view as extreme then wouldn't you? In fact, after reading this I would think you should be jumping in every time a disingenuous claim smearing TPers as extremists, and or violent for expressing, or holding our lying politicians feet to the fire in town halls, or holding rallies that end up leaving the ground they are held on cleaner than when they came, and no arrests, right?

    Glad to have you aboard.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Some people make lots of hay over the police arresting the 700...they want to make it out that its police brutalizing poor poor gentle Protesters...heh..
    No one will ever be allowed to block the traffic on any major artery into or out of NYC for ANY REASON...that is a gold standard.
    You have every right to protest...you do not have the right to cripple a large part of a city and its citizens from being productive just for what YOU WANT.
    Any large formation of humans for any purpose in the city of NY will be confronted with a sea of blue...to assure the safety of its citizens and their property and they will always come first...like it dont like it but either way your gonna lump it....cuz it aint never going to change.

    I do exactly that already... Of course the story has to be truthful, but yes I am well aware hundreds if not thousands of tea party meetings and protests have occurred without arrests, violence, extremism, or any other kind of ridiculous shenanigans like blocking traffic and kudos to them. And I acknowledge that the incidents where tea parties have gotten out of control, been arrested, whatever don't speak for their entire movement.

    You act like you're trapping me in an argument but really I'm just honest, unbiased, and don't have double standards, its the best policy
