    there are at least 2. PeteEU and Micheal66. Maybe try following your own advice as opposed to having your general knee-jerk reaction to someone's "political lean"

    A guy who sprays cuffed protestors? Maybe he didn't do that for money...but he is obviously not a clean cop.

    His action may have been misguided, but it wasn't corrupt.

    They weren't "cuffed"... That is just not true.

    They were sitting down, complying with police instructions and exercising their constitutional rights.

    He was the kind of cop that gives the profession a very bad image, an apparent sadist.

    actually the courts have imposed reasonable restrictions on constitutional rights for a very long time, from the practice of religion to speech. Here you had individuals impeding the day to day activity of other citizens, hence why what they were doing was considered illegal. You can argue with that merits of it, but you cannot claim it isn't a standard that is generally applied.

    PS and complying would have been disbursing and ceasing to impede the use of sidewalks. Something they were clearly not doing. So how about a little honesty. It would go along way in helping your position

The point of the topic was to show the difference in wages and pensions, with some Detroit automakers actually paying more in pensions than actual wages. I freely acknowledge that pensions are a massive drain on state funds, especially in California and I can easily cite all sorts of articles that I've read to come to that opinion. And that's not "in spite of" my politics its because I don't let partisan politics blind me, so no I'm not prone to blindly defending unions or public sector employee wages.

    So what the hell are you talking?

    I was more commenting on the idea that people think unions are good in general (so you was probably a bad choice of words), just like the opposing group that automatically assumes they are always bad. In the private sector they often serve a very real purpose, but in the public sphere the individuals represented seem more than able to exercise their interests through the power of the ballot and election process, with organizing only leading to abuse that is on par with the worst of what is generally associated with special interests

    With all due respect Henry, I remember this very well...They were sitting because the cops told them to vacate, so they squatted to protest the order, and the cop warned them at each stage what would happen if they didn't disperse....They weren't cuffed, and they were NOT ordered to sit there.

    Just so we are clear...

    "On November 18, 2011, police arrived wearing riot gear at 3:30 pm and began removing tents and arresting demonstrators obstructing the removal of tents. A group of demonstrators staged a sit-in on the walkway in the quad, linking arms together and refusing to move.[42] Campus police officers asked the demonstrators to move several times, but the students refused.[43]"
