Video: 'Occupy' demonstrators storm Bank of America, TD Bank branches in downtown Amherst
The Republican ^

Posted on 11/18/2011 8:42:07 AM PST by matt04

The various "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations around the country declared Thursday to be a "day of action" in the ongoing protest of big banks and Wall Street policies that they blame for a sagging economy.

While thousands protested in Manhattan, Los Angeles and other cities, several hundred people took to the streets of downtown Amherst.

According to video supplied to The Republican by Julie Varney of Amherstwire.com, demonstrators assembled in front of Bank of New England branch at South Pleasant and Amity Streets.

At one point, the footage shows demonstrators storming into the bank lobby to disrupt business. After several moments, demonstrators crossed the street and repeated the action inside TD Bank.

The video concludes with police responding, and protesters marching out of the bank.

Amherst police Thursday night said there was no information about whether anyone was arrested.

From the comments:

My sister works at that branch. The hourly employees that are working to pay their bills and put a roof over their heads were swore at and threatened with violence by this group of unwashed hooligans. They damaged the ATM and lobby and threatened to burn the place to the ground. My sister said they had such hate in their eyes and is positive that many would commit murder for "the movement" without hesitation.

The violence, threats and destruction the Tea Party never committed is done by OWS and mostly ignored by the MSM.

Ya know I think it is almost toime for Americans to start taking the law into their own hands, since it seems the Police have no intention of stopping this crap.

The problem is that the police are told to allow the Occupy Wall Street spoiled children to break the law. If these spoiled brats were arrested immediately and had to spend 6 months to 1 year in prison they would learn some consideration for others.

Until then, the spoiled children do whatever they want and the protests(or should I say temper tantrums) continue.

What the Hell is going on here?

The leftist pukes I went to UMass with are now tenured traitors there. The undergrad bums storming Amherst now are their literal and figurative children. I suspect the plurality are now "studying" for a degree in Social Justice and Victims' Studies. UMass needs to be defunded by the state badly.

Amherst, where UMass professor Jenny Traschen attended a town meeting about when to display flags in town and responded that the American flag is a symbol of terrorism and repression, etc.

About 12-13 hrs later, two jets that flew out of Logan

frigging idiots, a bunch of kids who have never worked a day in their life wanting a revolution and one turd saying they want free education for all.
Someone has to pay for it unless their teachers work for free so why not go back to college and demand their professors work for nothing

So I go to the bank with my kids and I have to put up with that crap, no way.

Prepare for much more anarchy. Our leaders refuse to do anything to protect us from these zombies and there will be a time soon where we the civil will have to protect ourselves from the blood thirsty horde that liberals created in an ageless experiment to create the perfect citizen.
Obama and Charles Manson have something in common.. They both want helter skelter.Obama must have chaos. It serves his purpose. Once the bullets of the free people fly.... You can kiss the second amendment goodbye. This is the grand design.... Free people can not have guns. Only the overlords will.

I saw three adults in that group. One of them was probably a customer in BOA that happened to be there. One was taking photographs: he may be a reporter.

It’s a bunch of children.

this is what democracy looks like, what storming a bank, closing it down, stopping people form cashing their hard earned checks, and then causing problems in the street.

FRIGGING IDIOTS, they say they’re not attacking the worker there but they did, then they leave when the cops turn up.

Colleges need to be looked at and what is being taught there as well people need to speak up at lazy parents who have let their kids become these commies

Race Bannon and I were on a thread on September 9, 2001 talking about the stunt Traschen was about to pull. Race went to Amherst the next evening and spoke his mind at the Amherst Council meeting.

For some reason, a scene from Fawlty Towers comes to mind. Basil is chewing out an incompetent Irish contractor who keeps saying "If the good Lord . . .'. Basil grabs him by the shirt front and says, "If you say that one more time, I will bring you closer to him."

A closer experience with jail and its denizens, even if only the county lockup, would be salutary - if not for the protesters, at least for the public who have to put up with this crap.

You know what they call any other person or persons storming into banks and disrupting business?

Potential bank robbers who would be treated as felons on the spot.

I can hardly wait for the DNC convention here in Charlotte, home to two major banks. It should be interesting, to say the least.

Occupy Charlotte consists largely of 8 tents in front of city hall. Cops have arrested them for so much as stepping in the street so far. This town knows what side it’s bread is buttered on.

I predict riots.

Don’t let the name of the reporting paper fool ya....there is *NOTHING* republican about the area it serves. Amherst happens to have a confluence of the most liberal colleges found anywhere. UMass, Hampshire, Smith, Amherst.

Why am I not surprised.

I never suggested that, those are your words.

However, I could care less about Bank of America. I really dislike fatcorps like BofA because they aid and abet, and pander to illegal aliens. I spit in their face.

BTW, pro-illegal alien Bank of America has lots of money, including tax payer bail out money. Is BofA too cheap to hire security for their corrupt employees?

You’re a f*****g idiot.

lol...

And you're a crying, sniveling hog-jawed illegal alien lover who supports corrupt corps who take bail out money from the tax payers, among other things.

Cheers!

Bank of America's motto:

"Screw America, Profits regardless of consequences.

Remember when your illegal alien loving Bank of America announced that they will offer credit cards to those who cannot supply a social security number putting bank profits ahead of national security?

The stinking bank didn't even require any credit history, except having had a checking account with the bank for three months without an overdraft...

Remember when your beloved Bank of America had "quietly" started offering credit cards to people without Social Security Numbers?

Then Bank of America defended this betrayal:

Brian Tuite, the director of the bank's Latin America card operations said, "These people are coming here for quality of life and they deserve somebody to give them a chance to achieve that quality of bla, bla, bla...

Spit*
