Plus since it is known that OPD has had rulings against the department it is obvious why these Anarchists are pushing the limits of the law specifically in Oakland. Occupy Oakland is purposely trying to provoke the OPD knowing that OPD has been required by courts to perform in a given way. So any police abuse that these Anarchists get was by their own choosing. They obviously want to be attacked as an strategy, to appear justified in their propaganda campaign. They are seeking photo ops not justice.
Both you and Khayembii Communique are using the OPD as an straw man argument. It is obvious that to protect the Anarchist's you assert that anyone against the Oakland Occupiers are assigned as siding with the OPD. I am against Anarchy in general and will fight against the anarchists that try to manipulate any police department for political gain. There is no integrity in what the Oakland occupiers are doing. They have made it clear that they hate America and want to take over our country. What they call democracy is actually a dictatorship of the majority.
The occupy movement is a direct attack on the core of America. These Anarchist's that are using liberals and Socialists will stop at nothing to get their way. Remember this conversation in a year or two when they have escalated their violent revolution to a point where it will be undeniably corrupt. If one digs deep into the occupy movement one can obviously notice that non-violence is only a first stage. Occupiers accept that violence has its place, but they admit that they do not have the numbers yet for violence to be successful.
Everything that the occupy movement does is designed to gain numbers. The going strategy is to appear non-violent to gain legitimacy. The other part of the strategy is to appear leaderless to make it impossible to cut off the head. Next they need to look like they are fighting a oppressive regime. There is no plan to succeed with any of the protests. All over the occupy movement it is know that what they are doing is just lying the ground work for future efforts. At a future date these photos will be used to manipulate young people into believing that America is a hidden dictatorship. There is no plan to create a political party out of the Occupy movement. The occupy movement instead asserts that American government is too corrupted to save. They intend on replacing our government with theirs.
BTW how many dead protesters are there nation wide?
