One of the old school tactics of activists and protesters has been getting arrested. It's one of the best ways to get the media to pay attention, and when the cases go through the court system they get more attention. The police know this. I'm wondering if in some ironic twist the police are actually showing their support by arresting people for doing things like closing their accounts at citibank. If they hadn't arrested anyone, the story would just have been "people shut down their accounts". Who cares? But now people have been arrested! I would think if the police were really against the movement they would only arrest when they had no other choice, not just for people closing a checking account. Any thoughts?
