    Veterans attacked and arrested at Occupy Boston , Shameful show of force!

    "Police throwing everything in garbage trucks after Occupy Boston police raid where officers assaulted a line of U.S. Veterans standing in peaceful protest. What do they think that by destroying everything that people are just going to forget about it and go back to watching Dancing With the Stars? NOT!
    Scenes like the night before with veterans being attacked by steroidal testosterone laden cops, will do nothing but inflame the hearts and minds of people to get involved with protests in their town, so please pass this on - it's time to inflame this revolution.

    Not sure how they think veterans across the country will react to this, fortunately the guys on the front line of the protests were trained in non-violent direct action beforehand or scenes like this could turn violent. Unlike the corporate sponsored Tea Party movement with a bunch of strapped red neck thugs looking for a fight, OWS protesters are maintaining a non violent stance."

    Yes it is JB, and I'm proud that we are not the only ones to see that:

    "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.

    How would you describe the behavior of those that threw non-violent elderly veterans to the ground?

    You stop being non-violent when you interfere with Officers making an arrest.

    Thank you for playing though.
