    BTW, contrast the police in New York with the Police in Houston, Texas, which is legendary for knocking heads, when they need to be knocked. The Houston Police Department went to Tranquility Park, where occupy Houston is camping out. They inspected the premises, found some violations, told the occupiers what they needed to do to correct the violations, and wished them well.

    People up north love to badmouth Texas, but here in Houston, the police are setting a much better example than the ones in New York. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, 'ya damn Yankees.
    The National Lawyer's Guild? Now the commies are definitely a part of the occu-tard-nation.

    No, but the NLG is a communist front group. They were exposed in the 50's by the HUAC.

    What worries me more than what the protestors and police are doing is how the US media is failing to report it accurately. The US media may be able to control how the US citizens see the OWS movement, but they cannot control how the movement is viewed globally. Globally, the US protests are being covered in much the same manner as the Egyptian, Libyan and Syrian uprisings. The US is being viewed as somewhat less than democratic nation under the control of the rich and powerful and awash in a sea of human and political rights violations. The possible need for citizens of other nations to push their governments to help their fellow OWS protestors in the US free their country are being mentioned frequently in global blogs and comments on coverage.

    BBC News - As it happened: US protests

    Arrests made at Occupy protests in US cities - Americas - Al Jazeera English (while I know Al Jazeera has been demonized by US media outlets, they are the CNN of the Middle East and are far more supportive of the US than most Middle Eastern media outlets.)

    Reuters international coverage is very different from coverage aimed at US readers:

    If the international community is comparing it to Syria, Egypt, or Libya, they have lost their marbles. Simple as that.
