Posted on 05/10/2012 7:09:29 AM PDT by Mr. K
A well-organized protest against Bank of America Corp. began Wednesday morning in Charlotte's uptown with a fake boxing match and marches from three separate directions on the company's headquarters.
City officials say they could see up to 1,000 protesters from around the state and the United States in Charlotte, as Bank of America hosts shareholders for its annual meetings.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, armed with a new city ordinance that puts limits on such protests, made a strong showing in the uptown area. . . .

First- notice the time this story was filed- 8:45AM on Wed. the 9th- I was in The Dunhill Hotel on N. Tryon street watching the people march past- at 9AM (15 minutes after this story was filed).
Did this reporter know in advance what story to write?
The sentences are a confusing combination of "will be" (future) and "was" (past tesnse) as if it half written before and half written after- the photo accompanying it was certainly DURING.
This is just a cheerleading story fluff piece for supporting the protesters.
The crowd size was 'projected' to be 10,000 before the event. Today (Thusday, 10th) they said in the local paper that 'organizers' estimated the crowd at 750 to 1,000, Police estimated it at 500 - I estimate it at about 200 to 250... Maybe
Look at the crowd shots- close-up shots of 20 or 30 people, never a large overhead shot of the whole crowd
The protesters were a bunch of morons- I talked to one who had no clue why he was there except to "protest corporate greed"
Many were bussed in- if I didnt have to go to work I would have tried to follow one or two to see where they went (follow the money) and who was paying for all this.
In short- this was a MAJOR LEAGUE DUD of a protest.
I know... I was right there on the sidewalk as they walked past
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bank. They pioneered credit cards for illegals, 100% in the democrat agenda. BoA sucks.
Protesting bank of america is like calling buying a fish in the supermarket “fishing”.
Bank of America is legendary for their own incompetence and treating their customers like serfs or “muppets”.
(has anyone seen how much their stock has plunged?)
Responsible people stay away from bank of america and go to other banks.
these protesters have no money so this is all they are able to do, yell and stink.
The sublime part, though, is that BoA has been a piggy-bank for the DemocRATs for years. Now, the RAT-supported dregs are (trying) to pi$$ down BoA’s leg.
The part that stuck me most was this deceptive story written BEFORE the event even took place!
8:45am CDT is 9:45 EST, is it not?
Actually 8:45 a.m. CDT would be 9:45 a.m. EDT.
Well, there’s nothing wrong with getting in front of the news.
oops you are right- but still, he had to write the story and it was still happening at 9:45 AM EDT
About a week ago our wonderful FED okayed the ChiComs to take over banks in America. One is in the process of being taken over:
So how much of the funding of the anti bank thugs/occupiers/protestors is coming from the ChiCom banks?
Has anyone heard of this low level story?
Your kidding me, media coordination with dim/soviet rioters?
Wait until closer to the election. Their media will be cheerleading and organizing the riots.
Notice all of the American-chartered banks in China : )
