“They complained about the park being dirty," he said over the OWS Livefeed last night. "Here they are worrying about dirty parks when people are starving to death, where people are freezing, where people are sleeping in subways and they're concerned about a dirty park. That's obnoxious, it's arrogant, it's ignorant, it's disgusting."

Oh wow, that is really awesome. Precisely what we need, more retired Police in uniform joining the Occupy movement.

The Iraq War ends Dec 31st. I suspect we'll see shit go down come Jan 1st.

Yes, I suppose the returning troops will have quite an effect on what is happening. I wonder if the US Government has prepared for this contingency?

The US Government doesn't do anything but attempt to make money for Corporations. They don't prepare for anything.

Well, perhaps their corporate masters have some sort of plan.

I just can't imagine knowing that a bunch of pissed off, armed soldiers were coming back from risking their lives in a phony war to find their own people rising up against the government, and not having a back-up plan. Even if that plan involves hiding in a secret bunker, and Barack Obama spending a lot more time visiting other countries, or flying around in Airforce one.

The plan is simple: Buy them, and if they can't be bought, Silence them.

How much air time was dedicated to the Two Time Iraq War Vet Scott Olsen? How about Captain Ray Lewis' Arrest?

The institution will topple and there will still be people pounding on the FOX drum.

Homeless encampments under bridges and river basins are broken up all the time. Usually by agencies like OSHA

Does Captain Lewis realize that Zuccotti Park is a privately owned park? Maybe he was misinformed, because his comments are stemmed from as if it was a public park, in which then I would understand completely. If you're a homeowner, and your property was dirty, you would be concerned about it as well.

The park is a deal with the city. Lets put it this way... How much longwr before central park is privately owned...its not entirely private. Contracts should be upheld even if its comtracts with thw one percent

Tax payers subsidize the upkeep of the park. Though it is privately owned tax payers still bear the burden for it.

[-] 1 points by gestopomillyy (1695) 8 years ago

he meant that cops should be worried about and utilized doing something more important that some particular park.

[-] 1 points by CerealBox (8) 8 years ago

Reading into it again, your assessment does make sense. But I don't think he was aiming it at the NYPD rather than the NYC officials.

[-] 1 points by gestopomillyy (1695) 8 years ago

exactly he was criticizing the city officials that ordered the cops to do what they did.
