More than 25 individuals described as "Commandos" armed with military assault weapons are reported to have descended on as few as eight (8) unarmed "Occupy" protesters in an abandoned building in the City of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Other people, who were near the building being raided at the time had guns drawn on them and were forced to lay on the ground while handcuffs were put on them according to local media reports.

It seems to me that The City of Chapel Hill isn't going to take any chances when confronting these filthy "Hippie, Communist, Nazis" and are fully committed to sending in their military-grade weapons of war to deal with the peaceful protesters.

Reports coming from the area are saying that the men brandishing the assault weapons looked more like soldiers than they did police and a photo taken at the time of the raid is purported to show these dangerous weapons being aimed at the protesters.

I am totally thankful that no one decided to pull one of those triggers! I do wonder how great the temptation to do so might have been and I wonder if the time will ever come when one of these things does escalate into a tragedy?

It is further reported that Chapel Hill's openly gay Mayor, Mark Kleinschmidt offered the media a prepared statement which said, "The town has an obligation to the property owners and the town will enforce those rights."

The Occupy Protesters had, evidently...and according to news reports, broken into an old abandoned Chrysler building, put some banners in the windows and spent the night there.

I am glad that the City of Chapel Hill is so well prepared to deal with these horrific threats from peaceful, unarmed protesters. In my opinion it is probably good that they didn't send in some tanks or artillery as well.

I am wondering when one of these "Peaceful" protest situations is going to erupt into gunfire and carnage. Is such possible? Is that something to look forward to as these protest things go on? Will someone eventually die like they did at the Kent State Massacre in Ohio a few years back? Is that kind of thing waiting to happen?

You do mean the cops that were responding to a break-in right?

When you look around the country and see the fires, the Molotov cocktails, the cutting of police, not to mention all of the calls for revolution, why do you think they will not aggressively put an end to this?

Wow, who are those people starting trouble? Certainly not the peaceful protesters... Could they be insurgents who's only ambition is to cause problems and give the movement a bad name?

I suggest enacting some private security within OWS...

Enacting some form of internal security to protect against those that would disrupt or cause problems within this 'peaceful' protests is essential.

Choose hundreds and identify them with our own colors and let them maintain the peace. Equip them with communications and keep an open line with the police.

This is the only way you will maintain the privileges allowed for a peaceful demonstration.

Do not enforce, simply encircle troublemakers and bring in the police to remove them...

They're trespassing, now get the fuck out of other people's property.

Wow, had you been around during the freedom marches I am sure you would have said the same thing. It is hard to hide behind ignorance...

If I own a building and you're squatting and manage to get hurt, then I can be held legally liable for your illegal actions and stupidity. Wake up.

Hopefully the gun fire will start soon.
