    Jury Finds Occupy Wall Street Protester Innocent After Video Contradicts Police

    In the first jury trial stemming from an Occupy Wall Street protest, Michael Premo was found innocent of all charges yesterday after his lawyers presented video evidence directly contradicting the version of events offered by police and prosecutors.
    You mean the police and prosecutors fabricated evidence and testimony in order to attempt a conviction of an innocent person? Say it ain't so. I can't speak for New York, but here in Houston, Texas, that's called Official Oppression, and it's a felony.

    It's a shame that 99% of cops give the other 1% a bad name

    The police were and are nothing but the Gestapo of the political elite when it comes to Occupy Wall Street and similar organisations. Anything that threatens Wall Street and the banks are considered enemies of the state.

    I am pretty sure lying under oath is called perjury in NY, and it is also a felony. However, I wonder if because of the special circumstances to where the judge interviewed the officer who was filming in a special meeting means he was never actually sworn in and can avoid the charge. they will probably end up doing their best to keep the liars from prosecution. It is not right, but i am sure it endangers other cases also and they probably don't want that.

    Oh, and as for the texas comment i do believe that texas is one of the states taking a beating on the new rules that allow DNA evidence to overturn old convictions. I don't think it being a felony makes much of a difference when you have a criminal cop. it would also seem that under the texas death penalty certain police and prosecutors may have gotten away with murdering innocent people through the law. Don't get me wrong, I doubt there is a single state out there with a completely honest police force and state prosecutor's office. However, claiming texas is honest seems to be really off.

    I don't believe the article stated that NY was going to prosecute for perjury. Wouldn't this be incumbent upon the Prosecutor as a rule of law. Does it mean the Prosecutor is "bought and sold" if he/she does not prosecute? Is it another way of saying "Justice is for the rich and influential?" You know, the Prosecutor is working for Wall Street. The 1%. Does this surprise anyone?

    Much of the crowd still broke trespassing and resisting laws, let's not forget that.

    Also, he wasn't "innocent". He was probably found not guilty due to lack of evidence. Man, that reasonable doubt is an awesome thing. He pled the 5th and the prosecution couldn't make their case.

    It's that simple.

    so you are trying to say because one man out of a crowd was found innocent of a crime means no crime ever did happen?
    So i guess none of the rapes and destruction of property ever did happen because of one man was found innocent of one crime

    So despite the hard evidence he is just "not guilty" a phrase that has lately come along with the tag "possibly still guilty so beware!" *shakes head* Hard evidence of him not doing what it is claimed that he did and he is still not considered innocent in peoples eyes. Some times "not guilty" really does mean "innocent". Particularly since one of our nations motto's is "innocent until proven guilty".
