    I do understand and perhaps the 99% will realize that they are paying for Bloomberg's Police, the 1%, and do what the 99% should do and initiate some change. A little 99% pain in the wallet might be effective here. Reaction! Maybe?

    multiple times as the movement grew.“A reasonable officer in the noisy environment defendants occupied would have known that a single bull horn could not reasonably communicate a message to 700 demonstrators,” wrote Jed S Rakoff of the federal district court in Manhattan, in his decision. Rakoff added that protesters “might infer permission to enter the vehicular roadway from the fact that officers, without offering further warnings, proceeded ahead of and alongside plaintiffs onto that roadway”.
    What a pathetic decision.

    It was the protestors responsibility to listen to the bullhorn. Singular or not.
    Nor do Officers have to repeatedly give warnings. The protestors should have listened the first time.

    I hope this is appealed, any class action stayed until, and overturned.

    This is just a small victory. Maybe the NYPD were just out to knock those "Un-American hippie heads"? Who knows. But just a small victory.

    Thoughts?

    Well we'll see if anything happens to the police departments which unlawfully arrested these citizens. Likely not, but it's NYC so it's not like it's a shining example of freedom and liberty anyway. We should take the Statue of Liberty away from them.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The sad thing is that OWS in no way shape or for represents the 99% they are the 1% extremists.

    More the 1950's that I never got past. In my mind the 1960's should never have been alowed to happen.

    Can the judge show me where the 1st amendment says you have the right to block rightful commerce by preventing individuals from getting to work on time?

    Can you tell me where it says you only have the right to peaceably assemble where ever YoungConserv thinks is right?

    If you are intentionally blocking commerce, then it is not peaceful. It is intended to disrupt others.
