Posted on 11/10/2011 7:12:04 PM PST by Kaslin
I wish I could say I'm surprised, but honestly, I'm not.
Occupy Wall Street -- located mere blocks from the World Trade Center, and consequently, the 9/11 memorial -- has defaced the memorial honoring the thousands who died there ten years ago. As a result of the recent violence, sexual assault, and vandalism, Manhattan's most elite squad of homocide detectives has been assigned to monitor the protesters camped in Zuccotti Park.
The NYPD has moved three elite Manhattan homicide detectives and a deputy chief to the raucous Occupy Wall Street protest in response to a rash of sex attacks, thefts and vandalism -- including graffiti scrawled on the nearby 9/11 Memorial, The Post has learned.
The detectives, who began working cases at the park two weeks ago, are also investigating two acts of vandalism on the 9/11 Memorial.
In the first, a heart was etched near a name on the bronze memorial. Cops suspect the perpetrator may have been a family member of a victim.
And last week, a drawing of a skull was found on the memorial. Both marks were removed.
They have reason to suspect that OWSers are behind the latter instance of vandalism.
When the protests began, the members claimed that their goal was to raise awareness about the plight of the "99%." They said they were doing this for the ordinary Americans harmed by evil Wall Street greed. In a misguided way, they claimed to be patriots.
The "occupiers" actions in recent weeks, however, have put that assertion to bed. Turns out, combatting corporate greed was just a great excuse to throw a party in the streets!
Ordinarily, the unserious behavior exhibited by so many "occupiers" -- the drum circles, the open-air sex, the "human microphone," and "consensus-building-by-twinkles" -- would simply be cause for laughter. But the revelry's gone too far.
Whatever good intentions some of those original "occupiers" may have harbored have been stamped out by crime. Now, there is something maliciously farcical about this protest. What was once a camp-out to "raise awareness" -- albeit of a stance based on false premises -- has become a veritable slum.
The reports of rape, theft, and death illustrate the kind of degenerates that the protest has attracted -- and now, the vandalized 9/11 memorial. I'd be hard-pressed to think of a more disrespectful act toward the innocents who lost their lives in the most brutal attack conducted on American soil.
These "occupiers" hold nothing sacred beyond their own desires. Whatever credibility anyone could have attributed to the "occupation" at its start has long since exhausted itself. Their absurd demands, coupled with their reprehensible behavior, show them for what they really are. Occupy Wall Street is hardly a profound movement calling for necessary social change. It's a kegger gone violently wrong.
And *THIS* sorry excuse for a big-city mayor was considering a POTUS run, either now, or in the future? Word of advice, Bloomers, with *this* albatross around your neck, don't even think of going there, ever...
What makes you the author is vapid and shallow? Did you even read the article? Or do you think it is okay for the OWS protesters to deface the 9-11 monument? *rme*
That should be What makes you think the author is vapid and shallow? Did you even read the article? Or do you think it is okay for the OWS protesters to deface the 9-11 monument? *rme*
Except for a mention on Oct 18 by the NY Post regarding another defacing incident on this memorial, the only mentions of the incident(s) are on line blogs.
Thew liberal MSM has gone totally silent on these creeps.
My name isn't Kate Hicks, so don't come on to me and tell me that spell check would like to be your friend, and if you use spell check then you should know that spell check is two words, not one.
Now tell the author to use spell check.
No it is not surprising at all
Unfortunately for us, one of the Bozos will be the Manhattan Borough President, who loves OWS and appointed the members of Community Board 1, the self-important lefties who stubbornly support the cesspool that is right in their own neighborhood.
If any proof were needed that community boards are not the voice of the community, these people are Exhibit A.
Why are homicide detectives investigating this? Has someone been murdered? Just curious.
. . . just asking.
Please “occupiers” stay as long as you like, deface whatever you’d like to, riot, scream, stink.....You are “Obama’s Brats” and you will help remove him from office.
> That is going to piss off a lot of people in that city.
I don’t believe that.
My perception is that most of the people in that city are sympathetic to the OWS and the Muzloids that destroyed lower Manhattan and 3000 lives.
The people of New York are the OWS
> You are Obamas Brats and you will help remove him from office.
Yes, they are his brats, and they will help to re-elect him. Most of them will vote at least twice - at least once in the cities where they are attending college, and at least once by absentee ballot in their home towns.
The neo-Bolsheviks have achieved critical mass. I fear that dislodging them at this point will require more than the average American has the stomach to do.
Most people will just complain and return to their favorite entertainment and recreational beverage/drug. As long as they can be entertained and drugged, the people won’t do anything. The neo-Bolsheviks know this and work it to their great advantage.
Not only vapid and shallow, but incoherent and disjointed (and she can’t even spell “homicide” correctly even when it is spelled correctly in the original story she herself quotes!).
If you were going to post on this topic, which is an important one, you should have posted from the source, the New York Post, instead of the regurgitated blog.
Here is the link to the original source:
MUCH more informative.
These are Obama’s children. Let’s not ever forget that.
Anyone see Bloomy in the area?
