Here’s a longer version of the incident, as seen by a CBS News team.

Notice the “hero” in the cowardly “Anonymous” mask. People who are for genuine improvement in our nation aren’t afraid to show who they are.

Notice the demographic:

1. Young
2. White

Why do I have a strong feeling their parents are middle to upper-middle class, if not plain “one-percenters” themselves.

You know the Federalist was published under a pen name, right?

I think one of the commenters is correct that the unionized cops are complicit.

Perhaps we are being too hard on the Occupy protester. He could be a Stalinist and identified the other protester as a Trotskyist.

The Federalist Papers were anonymous because of the fear of reprisals for the expression of political opinions. The anarchists are free to state their opinions openly, and they do so - but they wear masks to protect them in the commission of crimes, which is an entirely different matter.

Did the occupansies blame the police for not protecting them form themselves?

It’s a shame he wasn’t the recipient of a .40 caliber lobotomy.

Guess the badges have been commanded to do absolutely nothing unless specifically ordered.

The crowd should have started chanting 'Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump....."

Would have changed the whole nature of the demo.

I think they’re stuck between a rock and a hard place with idiots on all sides. An army of lawyers on one side waiting for a reason to sue, anarchist scum trying to provoke action. On the other side are the idiots whining about them not taking action, leadership that doesn’t order action and a city government so paralyzed with fear that they won’t accept responsibility for any of it.

I’d agree that there is a difference between wearing a mask and throwing a brick and wearing a mask and making a political speech, but anonymous speech has a long and important history in this country, and it deserves to be protected.

The last time the Left got middle and upper class whites all wee weed up on Marxism (the culture of victimhood, poverty and death), they lost because of the cruelty they inflicted upon one another. The rapes, the murders, the thefts and the poverty...in the end your friends become the major problem. Parents of these heads full of mush will wake up and begin ridiculing and forbidding the good intentions.

Yep. Lots of Daddy issues.

The smart ones outgrow it. Especially when they need to figure out a way to pay the bills.
