  •  As usual lthis is win-win for the 1% (5+ / 0-)

    They got their opposition crushed by a police force paid for by the 99% while doing the bidding of the 1% and the 99% will be footing the bill for the damages, too.

    It's time the 1% saw some justice headed their way.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

    •  Actually (4+ / 0-)

      the 99% pays for both the police force and their damages incurred. That is part of the conundrum here in Oakland.

      I would be only too glad if the 1% wants to chip in for OPD salaries. Maybe my tax bill would go down.

      •  You're restating the point I was making. (1+ / 0-)

        In the bad old plutocratic days of the early 20th century, plutocrats had to spend money to hire their own goons, like the Pinkertons, to violently supress opposition.  Now they get us to pay for our own oppression as well as the mandated restitution.  It's win-win for them as I stated.
