    No, he said he was disabled.

    He did not even approach saying he was a retired from the military.

    Uhhhhh.... So assaulting police is okay if they have protective equipment?

    This is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard anyone say in my entire life.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I didn't say it was ok, but I did say it should be considered as a factor in the police's response.

    Will you kick a little girl's ass if she attacks you but does not have much chance of actually harming you?

    They can still be harmed by firecrackers, bottles, paint cans, rocks, etc.

    Actually much of CPWill's response was due to a misunderstanding of my position and likely a lack of a desire to understand my position.

They yes they will be asked to leave.

    Nobody is silencing them... Occupy Protesters have been repeatedly told by local governments that they are free to protest and then clear the park at night like everyone else is supposed to do....

    Yes. Nothing ignorant about the use of rubber bullets. I have a good idea you don't have a damned clue what they are, how they are used, how one is trained to used them.

    My opinion was that the police response to the OWS movement in Oakland was overly brutal and goes beyond what is permitted even in actual war zones, such as Iraq.
    This was your position dude......

    If a mob like that had descended upon us in Iraq (I was actually there.......twice), we would have used alot more than tear gas to clear them out.

    So... how are cpwill and I misunderstanding your position???
