Forum Post: The NYPD needs to stop suspending the 1st amendment. We have right to peaceful protest.

We have a right to peacefully assemble guaranteed by the constitution. The NYPD does not have the right to suspend it whenever they choose. These occupy patriots get arrested for all of our freedom. We will continue to occupy this nation until the 99% wins back our freedom from the 1%. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrzcTZWLh4A

Hey all, I posted an incident that occured Thursday under the 'Eviction' news post as a comment. I don't think I can cut and paste it, but it's relevant. NotYours, if the NYPD did its job by the letter the world would be a better place. Right now I can think of a moron who is a nasty, drunk pimp who caters to cops and discounts city workers, and guess who always has the upper hand? Even when he beats his wife or kids? Or throws rocks, vandalizes my cars, screams obscenities, and slanderizes me or anyone he's mad at today? Or threatens to kill, with immunity and DEFENSE from cops? It's to the credit of many officers here that they don't all take his side, but no one is allowed to arrest him because of his 'multimillion dollar house and police/FBI operation it took years to put in place'. Sure, pimping to the few. He's probably the Gilgo Beach killer, police connections and all. As a 'home owner' he has rank over some but as a white guy and of course pimp, pusher, and hand greaser he has immunity and is welcome. Is this your NYPD?

If you are breaking laws or ordinances, trespassing or violating traffic regulations, then guess what? The NYPD is doing exactly what they are supposed to. If you bring violence against them, or others in their presence. Guess what? They are doing their jobs. When you are following ALL the laws and this still happens, THEN you can complain.

They NEED the police or else there'd be absolutely no press on this Saturday jaunt into a ghost town. No one is down there on Saturdays.

Is there any one trying to form a class action for our right to stand on the sidewalk peacefully? If so could you send them my way. I want to help.

@socrates469BC Exactly. But he can't run again for a fourth term. Oh wait, I guess he can if he changes the law AGAIN. Can't wait for the day the police are on our side charging into Bloomberg's apartment to arrest him.

They NYPD acts because someone tells them to. That someone is Mayor Bloomberg.

Vote Bloomberg out. He is more than the symbol of Corporations taking over your government. He is the CEO who thinks that New Yorkers are his subordinates. He does not realize that he is the public servant.

What exactly was the objective of yesterday's march? Those buildings aren't open on Saturdays.

[-] 1 points by Peterbrauer (10) 8 years ago

The march was for all of our freedom from the oppression of the 1%, which is a 7 day a week thing.

Why march where no one will see you. It's desolate down there on a Sat. As I said in another post, you must have wanted the police or nobody would have known you were down there. I've been down there a few times on the weekend. it's dead.
