Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Quite frankly any comparison to the civil rights era protests will fall incredibly short.
You don't have a right to impede other people, in order to protest your pet cause.

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
After having read several other stories on Ms. Fox and her claims, I've discovered:
1. She has attended several OWS protests in which clashes with the police occurred, and in Sept. gave police a statement claiming that she was 3 months pregnant, during which time she complained about stomach pains and was taken by ambulence to the hospital. She refuses to release hospital records, and claims she told police that she was only 1 month pregnant. She has clearly been camped out with the protesters for a minimum of two months; therefore, any claims that she just wandered into the encampment to see what was going on is baseless.
2. The man she claims is the father of the baby has been arrested several times during the past weeks of protests, so her claims of being unaware that there could be violence is baseless.
3. There is no evidence to support her claim that she was kicked in the abdominum or hit by a bicycle, or even that she suffered a miscarriage, since she refuses to release medical records that would indicate abdominal bruising and fetal remains even to the police investigators.
I've concluded that until evidence to the contrary is released, I believe this woman is an opportunist who has twice tried to put herself in a position to capitalize financially from the chaos and is hoping the city will give her a fat settlement check just to make her go away. If that makes me a bad person instead of an objective, rational one to some of you, then so be it.
Yes, these people are very different in some ways, but I really don't think it's honest to try to demonize the individual people in OWS on one hand and defend Civil Rights Movement on the other. People against the Civil Rights Movement then used the same tactics... attack the protesters themselves and not their message.
