Predictably, the establishment corporate media as exemplified by hacks like Sean Hannity denounce the genuine grass roots movement that is Occupy Wall Street.

A Marine sergeant calls bullshit.

Last night at Occupy Wall Street in Times Square, Marine Sergeant Shamar Thomas boldly defended the occupiers. Sergeant Thomas calmly asked the NYPD why they aren’t protecting the peaceful protestors. The NYPD ignored his questions and continued telling protestors to leave the sidewalk otherwise “they’d get hurt.”

Then, in an epic scene, Thomas approached the line of NYPD officers who held their batons.

While many Occupy Wall Street demonstrators had been arrested for merely crossing the street, he exclaimed, “These are U.S. citizens peacefully protesting! These are the people you are supposed to protect!” The 10-15 NYPD officers he addressed dared not to touch him.

Sergeant Thomas continued denouncing the NYPD’s actions shouting, “This isn’t a war zone! I’ve served overseas, that’s a war zone! Get rid of your batons and helmets!”

After five minutes of severely and loudly criticizing the NYPD, the Sergeant walked away leaving the scorned officers behind. The few people who were there applauded and cheered.

    Over generalization? A that changed its name from Democrat Republican to Democrat … is that generalization or over-simplification? And how do you know that you are telling the truth? I just gave you the time period in which Democrats ruled Alabama and instead of rebutting you twisted every piece of crap making yourself the most intellectual piece of crap ever existed on this page? You are pathetic. Democrat is the only that redefined the word SEX, you sick!

    yeah, right. taking a bunch of previously established scientific principles, laws and experiments and combining them (rocket science) is much harder than building a limitless language of logic which combines everything in the universe into one system (inventing maths). thanks for reminding me.

    “Are you really attributing the worlds ills on racial diversity?”
    No, attributing it to those who insist upon pretending that racial diversity exist. Instead of addressing these differences, they think that shuffling money around is the answer. They adopt this myopic view because money is measurable/countable, well suited to statistical studies. they see that money is never the root (except of all evil). Money is only an outcome.

  16. Demonstrators torn over whether to concentrate on economic inequality or to move towards protesting police brutality Occupy Wall Street returned to the public spotlight this week following the largest mass arrest of its since the movement was evicted from its home base in November. Last weekend’s events, including a female protester apparently having a seizure while handcuffed – combined with numerous accounts of excessive police force – have been described by many protesters as some of the most violent in Occupy history. A New York Daily News on the scene said the New York City police was “out of control”. This weekend, occupiers plan to push back. In a press conference earlier this week, Occupy and community groups that have long criticised the NYPD demanded the resignation of the commissioner, Ray Kelly. On Saturday, Occupy organisers will call on victims of police abuse to join them in a mass demonstration aimed at denouncing a wide range of NYPD…

    Banner from Occupy Tampa Occupy Tampa has stood in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street since its inception, and will function as the host occupation for the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL on August 27th – 30th, 2012. Preparations have included: 1) Securing sleeping arrangements for as many occupiers as we can fit in our current encampment. In order to maximize available space to accommodate as many people as possible, we will (2) remove individual tents and replace them with large canopies to offer shade and protection from the weather. (3) Our liaison with Fire Dog Lake, Sonja Ebron, continues to work with Occupy Tampa by securing items such as sunscreen, bug spray, bandanas, water containers, sleeping bags and mats, UV protective and other useful items.
