    Well why did Obama, Biden and Pelosi defend them when they first came on the scene?

    For the same reason I would defend them now - some of what they're saying makes sense, they're talking about important issues (sometimes), and they deserve to be heard. The more cynical answer is that they're useful in re-framing the economic debate in the US along lines that are more helpful to left wing politicians than right wing politicians.

    ... Since when do "parks" close? I've heard of basketball courts being closed but entire parks? :/
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yes. They definitely want to bring this country down. That would be exceedingly useful to unemployed 20-somethings and is in no way crazy.

    They don't rape women and most of them don't vandalize anything (although criminal elements within certain cities have used them to shield criminal activity). They aren't Mongols. They're American citizens.

    By ASSOCIATED PRESS | 3/18/12 12:53 PM EDT

    NEW YORK - Police say more than 70 people were taken into custody following a rally at the park where the Occupy movement was born.
    Hundreds of protesters had returned to Zuccotti Park near Wall Street on Saturday to mark the six months that have passed since the movement began. They locked arms and sat down after police announced on a bullhorn at around 11:30 p.m. that the park was closed.

    There were many rapes at Occupy protests, actually.
