Sigh, okay let me put it this way: Is protesting in the united states of america Illegal?
at this point, normally, I would just walk off, but I suppose I'll say it in a way you can understand.
Protesting = legal
barricading public roads and property = not legal
setting up camp inside of city limits on public property = not legal
disobeying a lawful order from a police officer = not legal
You labeling the OWS protesters in such a way shows you have no understanding of the issue at hand. You should let the adult talks instead of trying to bolster your ego by bashing OWS to try to look better than them.
like you got room to speak of "being an adult". I'll put it like this. there are many ways to protest, some are legal, responsible, and effective. what OWS is doing is is sometimes legal, sometimes not, its not very responsible to protest and not hold down a job to support yourself, or at least be looking for work, and its not effective at all to protest in the manner they protest because they just look stupid.
In the situation we are talking about they weren't, and even there, is it moral to just pash the brains out of any protest group because they supposedly blocked a street or a building for some time? I think it's a concession that is greatly acceptable comparing to the actions of the people they are protesting.
who said anything about bashing anyone's brains in? If you want to protest, fine, but do it in a legal manner. blocking off access to a building or property that does not belong to you is illegal. blocking off public property is also illegal.
No but if a cop would order someone else to do it and you would see them refuse you might cheer the police up while they beat them down afterwards amirite?
*facepalm* i will not justify that with an answer, because that is just plain stupid.
I see you are a fervent watcher of fox news....
I was half asleep when i posted this one, Correction: they didn't find it in zucotti park, they found it on a guy. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manha ttan/party_over_but_more_occupy_arrests_
2Ouk2G4BfhM3YnQo5lLuMM and no i didn't get it from fox news. nice try though.
that's also a fun read, dumbasses breaking the law, thinking they can get away with it because they're part of some group, and ending up in prison.
however, it does kinda make you wonder what kind of damage a metal pipe can do, doesn't it? I got some cardboard rolls at work, I know a thick one hits about as hard as a baseball bat if you swing it... not sure if the ones found there are thick or not.
I get it, I think the issue here is that you do not understand the concept of a protest.
I understand the concept of a protest just fine, willfully breaking the law isn't how it's done. All these people know is "break the law, get arrested, garner pity, someone will do something for them... eventually." it's a bad plan. If they want to protest, they need to come up with a solution. However, all I hear is... "we're the 99% and we will be heard!" which apparently anyone who disagrees with them is in the 1%.. I wonder what happened to my millions upon million of dollars I apparently have because these dumb sons of bitches do NOT represent me.
Protesting is fine, as long as the cops let you protest. WOW!
funny that the cops weren't firing tear gas into the tea party rallies, oh wait, that's right, they weren't blocking off streets and camping in parks, or breaking the law. odd how that works.
Personally, I'm amazed they haven't (to my knowledge) try to compare themselves to the civil rights marchers treatment, which would be laughable, because they had a plan and a solution, unlike OWS who just want... something.
OWS is fighting against corrupt goverment and rigging the system...
they're not fighting against anything, they're just pitching tents in places they shouldn't be pitching tents and hoping something happens. that's not protest. normally when people protest, they have a solution to the problem. OWS does not. all they got is, "We're not putting up with this no more! we're gonna camp in town until we get what we want!"
it'll fizzle out as winter comes.
Tasered, how shocking. Cool story you got tasered, I am genuinely surprised. However while those weapons are non-lethal and can serve as a good asset to cops in arresting people, they often get overused and cops abuse their power. Here is a clear, recent example, just in case.
I think they did the right thing. if you fail to uphold the law, shit just goes to hell.
