Thank you, courageous wonderful brothers and sisters, freedom workers, that are doing good for themselves, for us and the whole world. God Bless you. And remember your "brothers and sisters in blue". This is not easy. They are pawns in this game. I never blame the guys and gals on the front lines. Difficult place to be. Put yourself in their shoes. Surrounded by thousands of seemingly or actually angry people. AND I do understand. My reaction when I see the cops being brutal is to have thoughts of severe retaliation. I do NOT understand why some officers do this. Is it planned to instigate violence? AND officers are my brothers and sisters too. What would happen if they did nothing? Where is Mayor Bloomburg? He is their boss. AND to law enforcement. You have a strong union. How many officers and/or their families have suffered from this economic criminality? lost homes? lost relationships? What is the state of your pension plan?-Can you afford to send your kids to college? It would be wonderful if brothers and sisters, those working for freedom and democracy, and those ordered to defend big business, could sit in a circle and talk it out. To the brothers in blue, these are YOUR children. Your nephews, nieces, cousins, aunts, uncles fathers and mothers. Treat them as your own. Freedom workers these are your brother and sisters in blue. I know it is easy for me sitting in my home to ask you to do this. AND I do my best to practice this in my life. IMAGINE if ALL brothers and sisters where on the same side ! What power. Incredible. Dream it and it can happen.May Love, Peace and Light follow you and keep you. Pete

oh lord....the reason why these boys in blue lash out is that they are human. they are forced to stand around watching and hoping that the large crowds don't get out of hand. sorry, that's reality...there are people who work on Wall Street who want to get home to their families, who are not the 1%, but have jobs, have kids to pick up from daycare, etc. the boys in blue are there to protect and serve the entire community and yes, even the "evil" 1% as well.
