    I love how these idiots chant "the whole world is watching" as if their protests are in any way similar to the ones in the middle east.

    I would love for a couple of these liberal pissants who are mocking the cops to go out to the middle east for just one day and mock a military officer in libya or syria and watch how quickly they take a bullet or get the absolute shit beaten out of them. These kids truly have delusions of grandeur.
  2. Maybe the cop was out of pepper spray.

    This protest was getting no traction for the first week. Less than 10% of the projected turnout. So, like a good anarchist, they stepped up the rally with a march to Union Square w/o a permit, blocking traffic and creating a general nuisance. It was almost guaranteed that there would be a police confrontation, and sure enough, nightly news clips.

    Should have just let them alone and freeze their asses off over the next few weeks.
  4. I agree with this summation, which is why the cops should be going out of their way to not provide this type of fodder. On Saturday Officer Anthony Bologna (Tony Baloney?) maced several penned in females and that forced the media to report on the protests, effectively re energizing a dying beast. Now, as things were quieting down again, this clip comes out.

    Personally, I don't think we can really determine if the cop was in the right or not (based on the clip). There appears to be a conversation between the two and then the cop forces the guys head down. Either reflexively or in the spirit of resisting arrest the guy's head pops back up, and then came the knuckle sandwiches. Either way, perception is reality and the perception seems to be this was excessive.

    I dont care if it is police brutality or not. I got a lot of enjoyment watching that guy punched in the face and I hope there are more videos with even more violent beat downs.
  6. If I come across any I'll post them just for you :)
  7. The protestors are anti-semites since we control Wall Street.

    Anti-semites should be shot on sight.

    God bless Israel and all Israel-loving Americans.
  8. The video showed a cop trying to apprehend a leftist nutcase. [​IMG]
