    I cant blame an officer for wanting to keep the angry crowds back, ESPECIALLY when they refuse to do so as they shout obscenities at you.

    Sadly, police officers get accused of being biased FOR whatever cause the protesters are against... in nearly.... every... single.... protest. If that doesn't tell you something about those that are doing the accusing.... I don't know what will.
    The post you're argreeing was a dishonest one.

    The police led the protesters onto the bridge. But cops will lie to protect other cops in...every...single....case. If that doesn't tell you something about cops.... I don't know what will.

    Wow... Troll much?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    There seems to be a disagreement between different groups on whether the police "led" them onto the bridge or not. I'll stick with respectable police officers before I'll believe a mob of protesters, especially when those protesters all don't have the same story either......... who to believe?

    For you, its whichever story makes the police look the worse......


    Now go back to your cave, troll.

    Not sure the exact point that the libs are making. The protesters had permission to traverse the bridge, so long as they stayed on the pedestrian walkways. The arrests were made when protesters chose to walk in the roadway, and deliberately obstruct traffic. I believe the issue would be whether or not the police led them into the roadways or not. I have seen no evidence that such is the case. Whether they led them on the walkways or not would be a moot point.

    Of course, yesterday we had a bunch arrested in DC tryng to move their protest into the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, causing some to be pepper sprayed, and the Museum shut down. Sure all the tourists appreciated that from these punks. There wil be more arrests, as that's how the libs protest.

    Excerpt of transcript of today's Occupy Wall Street protest in NY, which has now grown to 25 cities:

    "We can see that for a long time we allowed our political engagement also to be outsourced. We want it back. We are not communists. If communism means the system which collapsed in 1990, remember that today those communists are the most efficient ruthless capitalists. In China today we have capitalism which is even more dynamic than your American capitalism but doesn’t need democracy. Which means when you criticize capitalism, don’t allow yourselves to be blackmailed that you are against democracy. The marriage between democracy and capitalism is over.

    The change is possible. So, what do we consider today possible? Just follow the media. On the one hand in technology and sexuality everything seems to be possible. You can travel to the moon. You can become immortal by biogenetics. You can have sex with animals or whatever. But look at the fields of society and economy. There almost everything is considered impossible. You want to raise taxes a little bit for the rich, they tell you it’s impossible, we lose competitivitiy. You want more money for healthcare: they tell you impossible, this means a totalitarian state. There is something wrong in the world where you are promised to be immortal but cannot spend a little bit more for health care. Maybe that ??? set our priorities straight here. We don’t want higher standards of living. We want better standards of living. The only sense in which we are communists is that we care for the commons. The commons of nature. The commons of what is privatized by intellectual property. The commons of biogenetics. For this and only for this we should fight."

    Arguements like that are going to do very little to help. I'm doubting I would have actually quoted it.

    Live forever? Sex with animals? Sorry, what is the arguement here?

    I don't think anyone could have explained the point better here:

    :look at the fields of society and economy. There almost everything is considered impossible. You want to raise taxes a little bit for the rich, they tell you it’s impossible, we lose competitivitiy. You want more money for healthcare: they tell you impossible, this means a totalitarian state.
