THIS WAS THE 1ST ARREST

A CAREFUL LOOK  AT THE FOTO SHOWS THE PERSON BEING ARRESTED.

ON THE A FOTO U CAN SEE THE POLICE WORKING THEIR WAY THRU TO MAKE THE ARREST.

FRM WHAT I WAS TOLD THE CHAP WAS SETTING UP A TENT. AN UNDER-COVER COP STARTED TO ARREST HIM. THE PROTESTERS PROTESTED WHICH BROUGHT IN THE OTHER POLICE.

THE GUY WAS THEN “DE-ARRESTED”. I ASKED , IF THE GUY WAS ARRESTED, THEN DE-ARRESTED WHY IS HE BEING ARRESTED NOW. IT WAS EXPLAINED TO ME THAT “DE-ARREST” MEANS THE GUY WAS PULLED AWAY BY HIS COMRADES, HE THEN  BEGAN TO RUN AWAY. AS HE RAN, ALL THE SPECTATORS WERE YELLING “RUN”  “RUN”  “RUN”.

THE POLICE CAUGHT HIM ACROSS THE STREET AND CON’T THE ARREST. THIS BROUGHT THE MASS OF OWS’ERS ACROSS THE STREET YELLING AT THE POLICE. THE SOFTEST WORDS USED WAS “SHAME” , “SHAME” .

    Too bad. There is no hope for change unless people take action. Being corralled in streets by the police will not bring change. Nor will getting arrested for something foolish.

    You must organize privately and publicly. Why raise hell in the streets. Get a goddamn stadium and refuse to let the police or other “spies” in. People must realize that they can shut the system down….and that’s exactly what is needed. Stop shopping, banking. Disconnect cable TV. Stop buying name brands. Stop shopping at the mega-stores. Bank at local banks. Call in sick. Whatever you do….that effort ought to thwart the fascist system we have in place.

    So meet and organize like civilized people who have power. Raising hell in the streets JUST WILL NOT WORK ANYMORE. Do you really enjoy seeing people get hurt? Outdoors areas getting wasted? Rubbish everywhere? They treat you like animals because you ACT like animals. Use your brain goddamit!! Hurt them in quiet organized ways. The list I gave you is just a beginning. You really don’t even need to leave your house to fight these bastards.

    Get real. Get a clue.

    in every situation around the globe when fire is used buy the protestors the police give up, flee or are asked to leave to minimize the damage, egypt, canada, greece, etc. IF you really want to get the message out get some fuel and some matches–burn wall street to the ground if you have to–

    Congress represents special interests, military contractors are in sweet heart deals, boxcars hitched to an endless gravy train, our USD currency is backed by nothing and unemployment/homelessness/hopelessness continue to expand.

    therefore…

    Kill any man (with extreme prejudice) that interferes with your civil rights. Without the enforcers…politicians, bankers & ceo’s would be physically removed from their homes and offices- tarred & feathered.
