    Arresting people who are in the roadway is understandable. Manhandling people who are not resisting and cuffing a 13 yo child - not so much.

    But administering on the spot executions would make sure they don't do it again.

    However, it doesn't provide for American citizens to harrass and intimidate other American citizens. I suspect your copy doesn't have that in it, either.

    These clowns aren't, "assembling".

    Assembling and petitioning for grievances and freedom of speech is at the heart of the protest. To ignore that is to ignore several weeks of reality.

    I suspect you hate the goal of the protest and thus are willing to turn a blind eye to the Bill of Rights when it does not suit your own belief system.

    Seems to me that it's about spoiled rich kids wanting attention. As I said way back, there needs to be a protest of Wall Street and their co-conspirators in D.C. but nobody is going to take those who I accurately described in my earlier post seriously.

    Someone thinks that people are going to rally around this but unlike so many protesting the rest of the country actually has to work and doesn't have time to pay attention.

    If this was to work you would have to get people willing to pull their money out of these banks. You would have to find people with real complaints......Not those who wasted 6 years in college having their parents paying for their every need and now are complaining because it's time to get a life and the easy life isn't there for them.

    Nobody believes the dweeb in the scarf is having it rough because of Wall Street.

    I suspect you hate the goal of the protest and thus are willing to turn a blind eye to the Bill of Rights when it does not suit your own belief system.
    I've not seen any real goals. Now the discussion that guns are the solution doesn't do a thing for the arguement of gun rights, but I most certainly would like to punch the little rich kid wearing the scarf and overcoat.

    Find some people who have actually been harmed and isn't argueing for the very solutions that caused many of the things they say they are against.

    Specious reply, they are allowed to protest, they are not however allowed to disrupt !
    It would appear you forget that the rights of one individual end where the rights of another begin...
    The question is more important than the answer!

    This protest really is becoming a sad joke.

    As Wall Street protest enters 3rd week, movement gains steam nationwide - CNN.com

    It appears from several stories (example linked) is that we have a leaderless protest going on that basically targets Captialism, corporate greed and bailouts seems to just be the fuel. Makes no difference if you watch FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, or otherwise as most of the interviews with those in protest seem to indicate a general hate for Capitalism yet themselves cannot seem to form much of an answer as to what to replace it with.
