Saw some clips on news. NYPD was provoking peaceful occupiers and began/carried out any violence. Sucha a shame that we must rewrite what is already there in black and white. The occupiers need a Bill of Rights now. Just humiliating, frustrating and beyond oppressed. These attacks are criminal on their part.

NYPD are the ones who should be arrested and face charges for closing a space required to be open by law.

It's the cops that are in the wrong. People were just exercising their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly. It's the darn cops that were taking the role of the aggressors, not the protestors. People are legitamately protesting serious isses, then the power hungry cops come in and enflame things, the situation gets out of control then people (mostly elitist conservatives) that love to look down their greedy, pointy noses at people start to criticize and dimish the occupation movement as a whole and trivialize the reasons the people are standing up to make their voices heard.
