This is a story you just knew was coming eventually:
According to internal documents newly released by the FBI, the agency spearheaded a nationwide law enforcement effort to investigate and monitor the Occupy Wall Street movement. In certain documents, divisions of the FBI refer to the Occupy Wall Street protests as a "criminal activity" or even "domestic terrorism."
The internal papers were obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice fund via a Freedom of Information Act Request. The fund, a legal nonprofit that focuses on civil rights, says it believes the 112 pages of documents, available for public viewing on its website, are only "the tip of the iceberg."
"This production ... is a window into the nationwide scope of the FBIs surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement," wrote Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, the fund's executive director, in a press release Saturday.
According to the documents, the FBI coordinated extensively with private companies, including banks, that feared they could be affected by Occupy protests.

“Make no mistake: The government was not spying on the Occupy movement because they thought it would be violent; they were spying on the Occupy movement because they were afraid it would be successful”
lol...Amongst the Occupy filth, I doubt there’s an IQ higher than 90.
Free the money from the rich NOW!

The Tea Party never faced this kind of issue from the cops. Yet Bunch is the first to paint Tea Partiers as extremists (he ran hard with the false claim about that census taker being killed by anti-government types when it was a staged suicide, and also was fond of using bogus stories to show them as racist).
The Occupy movement was merely the government’s left-wing astroturf. Any monitoring on their part was to make sure the Occupiers were doing what they were told to.
Another group of leftist jerks whining and crying. These fools don’t have a clue as to even what they want.
FR sure has changed since the old days.
Because OWS just isn't complete until they are ARMED NAZIs.
All OWS is missing now is their own version of hitler. Oh wait, we just had an election...
