    Protest is only proper if it is protest against what you want protested. Otherwise, those hoologins should shut up and obey the law!!!!

    Finially you describe a violent act. When did this happen? before or after the police began use of force?

    That seems to be the consensus with some folk around here. I'd rather protect the right for all and uphold it to its fullest. I like freedom, the alternative sucks.

    I do agree.

    Oct. 27, 2011 – Occupy Oakland Protester admits to Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC that protesters threw bottles at Police BEFORE police responded.

    Video: #OccupyOakland Protester Admits Bottles & Rocks Were Thrown At Police BEFORE Tear Gas, Flash Grenades & Rubber Bullets
    Um, that would be before....

    I think that opens it up to the realm of possibilities. Is there proof of the claim? Lots of vids were taken, yes? Then surely there are those demonstrating the initial barrage by the protesters BEFORE the police moved in to clear them out.

    While I'm not sure that is the best evidence, I do like you using MSNBC. Good to see you can trust a source when you want to.

    But that would be the point. Argue that these people went too far and not that merely not obeying is equal to violence.

    As I thought...I specifically used a cite that not only had the video talking with Lawrence O'Donnell, which I can't stand BTW, but it also included transcribed what the protester being interviewed, whom was there said....And it isn't good enough for you in our discussion....typical.

    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.
