    after the much, a protester was pulled over for a driving a car with a broken headlight and arrested, a small crowd from the ftp march came over to see what was happening and upon learning the b.s. reason for pulling over the car and arrest, started to mill about with cameras going. Two people got  very close to a parked police car/police officers and were arrested, rather violently. youtube

      They were bullshit from something else to start with. Citizen Journalists are doing a wonderful job at constraining the lies.

      as it was returning downtown via Broadway. I saw it on the OaktownLive ustream.

      As far as I know there have been three flag burnings: the one on the 28th, and one on each of the two subsequent FTP marches. I don’t know who was responsible for the first or third, but I do know who burned the second one: it was a man who’s been bitter at the rest of the group since his finance proposal failed, and has tried to disrupt GAs by shouting and making death threats against the Facilitation and Finance Committees. The other incidents may or may not have been sincere, but I suspect that one was only done to damage Occupy’s image.
