Do we have an exact timestamp as to when Occupy Wall Street went completely off the rails?

Then relax!

Wait - you just destroyed my property, what's with the attitude?

Sorry for the CNN link and ads

There's a serial movie script in here somewhere, sadly it wouldn't take much talent to write it.  Basically blah, blah, bang, bang, blah, blah, bang, bang, and so on and so forth.

I'd like the see the police academy's start every class with the mantra "Don't shoot people"; for fuck's sake it's basic common sense.

That's why I prefer to live in Texas.  The cops here understand that we're all just crazy enough to shoot them if properly provoked.

The sobering truth in this recent rash of white authority figure killing black man incidents is the amount of genuine racism still exists in this country.  And I'm not talking about the benign fnord racism, which is actually funny, but the number of white men, in authority, with weapons, that are afraid of black men.

Can we please stop shooting people, particularly freaked out women with their kid in the car.

It's really not all that hard, this "car as a weapon" thing has gone a bit too far.


Let's go back over this:  Thou shalt not kill.


Any questions people?

Why didn't the assholes just shoot out the stinking tires when they were standing right next to the car with their guns drawn?

Because no one is afraid of a tire shooter. Did the Marines on Iwo-jima shoot out tires when they charged up San Juan hill? I don't think so. Did John Wayne shoot tires at the Alamo? No need to ask, Comrade! Manly men shoot unarmed grandmothers in the face because that's how they roll when they serve and protect.

That's what they taught me in school. I didn't believe it then either.

That's all, thinking is no longer part of the equation.

I have had the opportunity to witness a police officer shooting and killing a man who was overcome with rage from a domestic dispute.  The cop was a sergeant with a dozen years on the force.  Even so, his adrenaline was running so high, I was afraid he would shoot me if I made so much as a sound.  He almost shot the guy's mother when she tried to approach her son who was on the ground and dying.  Out of control is a good description for his condition.  I completely agree with Em, but in your own self defense, it's better to never give them any reason to shoot.

On a daily basis? DAILY? Are they serious? You mean they don't even have a bored constable sitting feet-up at a wooden desk in the corridor, dozing or reading porn as the mood takes them?

I counted at least 3.  One directly behind and one in the tree line.
