    I think that they realized that it's more effective than a sit-in.

    Yes but then complaining about getting their asses stomped isn't exactly what one might call forethought. What they're basically doing is trying to provoke people but then complaining when people are provoked. This reeks of propaganda to me. Still, the best thing the government can do is not do anything. Not do anything when OWS protesters are occupying public spaces and not complain if/when a passersby lashes out at them.

    But try telling that to the US government! Somebody even pointed out to them that America's presence in Afghanistan is what's giving the Taliban support. If the US left then the Taliban would become unpopular once more. (Albeit less unpopular than most of the other militaries.) Same principle applies to the OWS movement. The US government is giving them support by intervening. Even providing a presence makes people favour the OWS movement. Which is exactly what the OWS movement wants.

    Because bloody revolutions have always ended up benefiting societies.

    America needs to break up. That's what it needs. That's the best Americans can hope for. Split the west from the east. The north from the south. The US of A is a failed experiment.

    I'm surprised no one has set off an IED or thrown some sniper fire into the middle of one of these circlejerks.

    They have, but since it is usually the state doing it, it only garners more support for OWS.

    This is stupid. I agree to peaceful protest but those nigs kicking cars, abstracting commerce, causing more pollution and generally bringing us down with them. That's when i have no problem with them getting their shit kicked. Some cops are douchbags but from what i saw in above(1.) they deserve (3.) not(2.)

    Honestly I'm furious at the police. They should have opened fire with live ammunition. I think people would think better of these protests once they saw a good old fashioned line of protesters kneeling in the dirt, taking a bullet to the head one by one.

    They need to stop blocking people from doing their job.
    it's not helpful or productive.
    the point of a protest is to make an impact in the political system by spreading awareness and gaining support of making working for a living a necessity that is easily attainable for everybody.

    interrupting others from working is not doing that, and it just drives a schism, and also provides a legitimate reason for the protestors to be arrested.
    blocking traffic and port workers is not going to achieve anything positive, and it does not hurt wall st in any way.

    Notice how they waited till an hour before closing. Since people who work docks get paid by the number of hours they work in a day, they knew burly stevedores were gonna be womping their asses hard if they ACTUALLY tried to interfere with their work schedule.

    mr gask confirmed for having an aching butthole. They accomplished jack shit today, except increasing the number of people calling for their execution. Stop supporting the occupy movement you commie.
