    no, a debate leaves open the possibility that I would change my mind on your defacing of other people's property... I won't.

    Ok, assuming these reports are correct, I have no reason to believe they aren't. However your claim was to endangering others, I took that to mean people who aren't protesting, mea culpa. As such it seems you are suggesting that affirming the need for government to protect people from activities they themselves choose to be in... interesting... By extending this argument... since hunting accidents happen local law enforcement should bar people from hunting, Skydivers from skydiving, and people from driving on the road as all of these are activities that people willingly choose to do yet are inherently dangerous to one extent or another.

    Still waiting for someone to point to what right of others these people are violating.

    The people "trying to restore order" were the ones who created the situation for chaos to occur.

    Needing brain surgery and partial loss of speech is a far cry from full recovery. Admittedly his condition was improved from critical.

    Perhaps not, but it is arguably a precursor, and it sure smoked your wagon

    Note how adults -- liberals (the music professionals) and conservatives (the military professionals) -- co-exist in harmony in the real world:

    Considering the current high profile of OWS and the sensationalist nature of the media, I just can't see this not making the national news if it was indeed credible.

    But I'm going to find another example because it may very well be a true story and continuing to question it is not appropriate.

    i'm just relaying what his doctors are saying.....and they are saying he will make a full recovery.

    his brain swelling is being watched... if it doesn't subside, he might need a craniectomy to alleviate the pressure.
