    You are not the 99%. More like the 2% that decided to drop out of highschool and live off state welfare money. As a citizen I am very disapointed in you lazy slugs and your worthless protests that disrupt the peace, Use city police resources, and our hard earned tax dollars.
    Obama would be pleased!

      Fuck your social peace. We are growing, and you reactionary pigs are running scared. Lock the door, turn on Fox news. This isn’t happening…

    @ Anti-Occupied I see you’re upset that the city is wasting your tax dollars on suppressing public dissent. We are protesting for the human rights of all people. Regardless of whether you recognize that yet or not, please direct your anger at those actually spending the money – local and federal government. We do not want them at our protests. Perhaps you could let them know that there are better ways for them to be spending your money.

    Please contact me if you have footage visual or audio moving or still, of May 1, 2012 as I was brutally assaulted that day and would like copies of your documentation of what happened to me.
