Excellent. It is just a matter of time now till we can have criminals like Senator Hatch and former Senator Gramm prosecuted. What will they be prosecuted for? They are responsible for intentionally, deliberately, with foreknowledge, and malice creating the legal framework that has allowed the 1% in America to use capitalism as a weapon to commit mass murder.

Further, it is just a matter of time now till former President Bush and Cheney are prosecuted for their war crimes and crimes of mass-murder.

The video of those students getting pepper sprayed is the final thing i needed to see to become "active" now I am awake and watching police brutality just gets by blood boiling, and has turned ME into a activist. I hope my feelings spread to other people. As the actions of those who sent the cops (probably from a federal level, Oboma) was truly EVIL and against everything this country is supposed to stand for. How can we reverse a police state if we are not even allowed to speak? We know that when we call our representatives they do not listen but act like they do. WRONG! take our government back. Occupy our government!

Over use of police force should never happen. And I think part of the problem is that the police really don't know what to do in the kinds of situations they find themselves in. Mob mentalitity is a very real thing and can be very dangerous (look at past riots). However, the police should be recieving special training before being dispatched to rally locations.

Know the laws though. You guys are targeting private citizens and going onto private property. Just make sure you're in the right before pointing the finger.

You're right, unoccupy, knowledge of the law is extremely important. Targeting private citizens and property is not only illegal, it's unethical, and MOST of us don't drop our standards to that level. However, occupying space that was once public and was given to private organizations without asking for the publics permission...

Just because I don't agree with what you're rallying against, doesn't mean I don't support your right to rally (in public areas).

right on!

"One of the principles is proportionality," La Rue said. "The use of police force is legitimate to maintain public order -- but there has to be a danger of real harm, a clear and present danger. And second, there has to be a proportionality of the force employed to prevent a real danger."

Excellent!! OWS is getting global support, and it's on paper to our government from the U.N. !!!

You guys talk about corruption here in America, then turn to the UN as a source for information. Hilarious!

[-] 1 points by Marquee (192) 2 years ago

We don't turn to the U.N. for information. Obviously, you didn't read the article.

[-] 1 points by unoccupywallstreet (81) 2 years ago

Sorry, I mean La Rue. Also, global support for OWS is going a little far with it. It's one guy talking about protestor's rights. Not a bunch of countries supporting the end of one percenter corruption.

[-] 1 points by unoccupywallstreet (81) 2 years ago

I did. The article focuses on what the U.N. is saying, specifically LaRoe. I'm not saying he isn't right in this case either, just that it's ironic.
