    And I agree with your point about violence begetting more violence. And in my town, the violence is not coming from the police.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    •  You have months of examples of police brutality (4+ / 0-)

      You have video. You have audio. You have professional boards taking action against the brutality. You have personal testimony from people. You have a veteran in the hospital who not only almost lost his life, but has lost his capacity of speech.

      And you say "the violence is not coming from the police."

      There isn't enough sand to stick your head in to save you and your family when they finally come for you too.

        Anyone can show up at an occupation including people who aren't saints. Because we have such a brutal society that leaves mentally ill people, and people with all kinds of problems, to fend for themselves on the streets, occupations are not without risk of violence.

        look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

        •  Waking people up at 7 am by banging a drum? (0+ / 0-)

          That would certainly be irritating!

          I don't know many people who are rational during the moments of waking... whether there is a drum involved or not.

          This better be good. Because it is not going away.
