    That being said, you have no data to accurately display the demographics about how many want to turn to violence and thus you cannot logically group the whole and pretend you are accurately representing the aggregate with your statements.
    I don't need a poll, or study to see that the numerous arrests, rapes, murders, disease, filth, and mentality of these spoiled brats are doing...You seem to have been indoctrinated like a good sheeple into buying their rhetoric. I'll be looking for the lean change.

    There were isolated incidents of crime, yes. But hardly indicative of the whole. If you have data to back your claim, I will give it more weight. But as it stands, it is nothing more than your bias opinion based on your person conviction of the political nature of OWS.

    I live in the world of fact and measurement. If you cannot produce measurement to back your claim, you have opinion. And your opinion on this matter is already highly suspect given an inability to divorce political opinion and bias from observation.

    The problem with violence is that on a primitve-brain level, it justifies escalation. It can be like a chain reaction. Keep pushing the police violently and they may accidentally kill a few people. Then OWS is outraged and wants vengance. Then cops die, then cops want vengance, and you get escalation where everyone is right, and everyone is wrong. It's dumb. Grow up. We have frontal lobes now, use them.

    We enjoy historic-level freedoms. So much freedom in fact that most people on this forum cannot practically describe a realistically more free way to live in society. If they had a cause to violently protest, I'd hope we'd all support it. They don't.

Hey protesters, feel free to continue to protest legally and responsibly. Sorry for shutting down your homeless shelter, I'm sure you will find the dozens of others to be more than accommodating.

    I have to end with my favorite quote in regards to the Occupy movement:

    ""Democracy destroys itself because it abuses its right to freedom and equality. Because it teaches its citizens to consider audacity as a right, lawlessness as a freedom, abrasive speech as equality, and anarchy as progress. -Isocrates


    Good riddance.

    Good to see that you hate democracy.

    That makes no sense at all since Neo Nazis, anarchists, and Marxists have massively different ideologies to the point where they can't agree on anything.
