Skip to comments.Violence at Occupy Wall Street (Startling and sick photos!)
Posted on 10/29/2011 6:28:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Violence by Occupy Wall Street protesters has spread to demonstrations across the nation, with thousands of rioters arrested and dozens of police officers injured. Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, explained New Yorks police officers are working around the clock as the already overburdened economy in New York is being drained by occupiers who intentionally and maliciously instigate needless and violent confrontations with the police. More than twenty New York city police officers have been injured by the protesters.
Here is a photo of Felix Rivera-Pitre, an HIV-positive protester, assaulting a New York city police officer:
AnkaKarewicz posted this photo from Occupy Oakland, showing that the event organizers were training the protesters how to assault peace officers:
Heres a photo posted by @ReadyAimShoot of a protester at Occupy Oakland carrying a sign that says All My Heroes Kill Cops:
Here is a video of an Occupy Oakland protesters admitting that protesters were pelting the peace officers with bottles and rocks before the police were forced to use tear gas:

The protesters at Occupy Phoenix have been distributing a leaflet titled When Should You Shoot a Cop which advocates the murder of law enforcement officers.
Protesters at Occupy Boston assaulted a young female member of Americas Coast Guard by spitting at her and throwing a bottle at her.
The Boston police are investigating threats made to their officers by Occupy Boston organizers, protesters, and sympathizers.
A protesters at Occupy Wall Street was arrested by police after he threatened to stab reporter John Huddy. The protester, Dustin Taylor, of Millerburg Ohio, was charged with grand larceny, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, and harassment.
New York police also arrested a man for making death threats against a woman, because she reported an assault to the NYPD. The protester, Hasan Castillo, of East Orange New Jersey was arrested, but police as still searching for two accomplices. They men apparently told the woman You had our friend arrested were going to kill you. Watch your back.
This speaker at Occupy LA explains that non-violence will not work and that violence is necessary to achieve the Occupiers goals:

It isnt only that the protesters are engaging in violence, or that the organizers are encouraging violence. To make matters worse, the organizers are discouraging event participants from reporting violence and other crimes to the police as part of their media management strategy. Victims of violence, including sexual assault, are being pressured to let these crimes go unreported so as to prevent media coverage of these incidents. One police officer described the grim situation in Zuccotti Park, There is a lot of infighting in the park. There is one part of the park where they wont even go at night.
Yeah, that will get my grandmother on their side.
You summed it all up the best!
Lets hope the Dems keep supporting this insanity..we may a a 1968 redo.
Yep, just like Tea Party people. You can’t tell the difference. OK, I can. The MSM can’t tell the difference. Life sucks when your brain damaged.
These are the people who want to decide whether granny has used up her share of resources and decide how to prevent her from using more.
More like 1972.
They are the SAME thugs that were around in the 60’s..ayers, Angela Davis...the same thugs that became the Politburo, Castro’s and Chavez’ elites!
Hi Sarah. Nice of you to keep up with me. Call me sometime.
Actually many of the thugs end up being killed by the people they help into power. The last thing a totalitarian government needs is trouble makers.
The brownshirts were one of the targets on the night of the long knives. Not all were targeted, just the ones who were likely to be problematic. Che Guevera fled Cuba after helping Castro to power for the same reason, he knew Castro would kill him.
Compare this to the well-mannered, law-abiding Tea Party gatherings!!!
One woman is out of business in Oakland because no one could get through the angry crowd to her store, and she couldn’t get there either!! The crowd was heckling her for free cigarettes.
Nice T-shirt. You could probably sell a bunch down at OWS.
Oh my! Genius comparison and both equally creepy. Hope the recipients of those “hugs” took a long hot shower.
Can you imagine having to wrestle with those filthy, smelly “people”.
You are right.Stalin killed all the “revolutionaries”.
Thugs are only useful so long and then they are no longer “useful idiots”....hmmm, sounds like the clintons took a page out of that playbook!ha.
WTF is a "peace" officer?
I cannot stop laughing!!!!!!!!!
You're still in my prayers, and I notice you still post a lot which means you could be like me and on the computer a lot.
Oakland is bad news even in the best of times.
SEIU is running squads of paid agents provocateurs to stir up the trouble there.
Mayor Quan just surrendered the town to the thugs yesterday. Only a fool would go past 40th street at night any more.
Yeah, I don't know who to cheer for as I pretty much loath stinking neo-hippies and cops equally.
Guess I'll sit back and make some popcorn.
And Madison’s current mayor, Paul Soglin, was a protestor during the 60s. Also, while he was mayor during the early 70s, he was part of a group that went to Cuba to meet with Castro.
Police once upon a time, a long, long time ago where referred to as “Officers of the Peace” or Peace Officers.
LOL! That's pretty funny. How quaint.
Meanwhile, Bernardine Dohrn is thrilled. She could not use “thrilling” often enough in a recent radio interview. It’s “contagious,” she said. “Thrilled” that the violence is spreading.
What did we say? Didn’t we warn it would go this way? When is enough enough?
Just as in 1972, the great Silent Majority will go to the polls and sweep out the trash.
I believe the Occupy adherents started oput as a fgroup of useful idiots for the Democrats and Progressivess, but when they stayed for days , which was stupid, they attracted drones, ex-felons, thieves and the dregs of the earth,
They had no message to begin with , only a desire for adventure, but scum was gathered in by free food tents and other things paid for by Soros, Move On.org and SEIU.
The whole thing has turned into a disaster that needs cleaning up by the real protesters going home and the problems being arrested and jailed.
The protesters didn’t know what they were protesting in the first place.
Do you have a handy link on that? Thanks in advance, if so.
The anarchists in the protester's ranks are probably drooling at the prospect of chaos, but they will be sacrificed by the puppet masters behind these protests whose ultimate aim is the destruction of the capitalist system, the Constitution which protects that system, and the imposition of a communist/statist government in the U.S.. The rest of the West has already fallen. We are alone now.
How can you tell them apart? Seriously, there's little difference between them.
Yeah and now they are running things in Washington.
Re: Clint Eastwood pic.: One of my favorite actors...
I have seen that movie twice in the last few months on my Gsat. (Asian TVRO)
Re: Artichokes... Globe? My favorite veggie since I was a small child. Can not find them in Phiippines :(
I did, however, find them on occasion in Slovakia at Tesco.
Since that protester has been identified as HIV positive, I hope the cop had more than a hot shower.
AO1, pop some for me too! I'll bring the beer!
I don't see this violence as necessarily an asset to the Republicans. Nixon barely won the popular vote in 1968, despite years of civil violence and a very unpopular war. Of course, The spoiler George Wallace was in the mix. Also, Democrats held healthy majorities in both Houses of Congress in 1968.
Unless something is different now, people will not be deterred in their lock step voting for the party of perversion.
How is that funny? In Texas, they are still called Peace Officers.
Me, I kinda like “quaint” traditions.
Their idiot mayor is to blame for the problem...I think if Rudy was still mayor, this would have been cleaned up a long time ago...New Yorkers that voted for Bloomy are to blame for the situation slso...the mayor tells the chief of police when to act and he is a mayor that doesn’t care...
In Texas and elsewhere, “peace officer” covers a much broader class of certified law enforcement than just public patrol officers and detectives. It also includes specialized state enforcement agents, such as Alcoholic Beverage Commission personnel. The definition is very specific, but broader than just “Police.”
How did they sweep out the trash? Even though Dems lost Congressional and Senate seats in 1972, they still held strong majorities in both. I hope we can do much, much better than that.
And, the incumbent "sweeper" was a "crook" who left office in shame just a year and a half later.
Sorry to be such a downer, but 1972 is not an election year for Republicans to emulate. I'd rather build on a 2010 model.
What is startlng about them? This was the plan all along.
She was interviewed on Fox TV. I think it was earlier this afternoon, (I may have taped it another day, I can’t remember). She was very distraught at losing her business, and seemed terrified to try to walk through the crowd to get to her front door.
