    Yes, but most of that is not wide spread across the movement, but rather isolated cases which occurred in large population protests through out the country. It's not just one rally in New York, the OWS is a huge nation wide movement with a large number of people participating. People want to point to these crimes and say "See what OWS is doing!", but it's a dumb argument as that is not part of OWS, but rather isolated incidents carried out by some individual.

    Sure, I know that not everyone in the OWS movement is engaging in the illicit activities but it is showing up in most locations and is being tolerated by those in attendance. I don't know about you but if I see someone being victimized in my immediate proximity I will do my best to stop the perpetrator. My point was that some people stereotype muslims as violent or hateful and they protested in a very dignified and civil manner, whereas the OWSers are having some major behavioral issues.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

The OWS movement would be far better off to leave the park, form some sort of committee, come up with a list of actual ideas, and then present them in an orderly fashion.

    Can you name one specific thing that would satiate that crowd and cause them to leave? I can't, because I don't even know what they want, but I have a feeling they won't figure it out in the lobby of Deutsche Bank.
    OWS reminds me of this: Poor People's Campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Only not nearly as well-organized.
