Protesters have taken to the streets for each of...

    Thomas DiMassimo’s attorney does not think his client will be charged in state court, but that the federal misdemeanor charge will go forward. “I don’t think he’s going to be charged in both jurisdictions,” said Jon Paul Rion, who added that he didn’t think DiMassimo would be in Dayton Municipal Court on Tuesday. “It’s clear that Thomas is simply a college student who, in his mind, was simply engaging in a form of political speech and making a statement, in his own mind.
  • Arizona State Student vs Protestor

    Watch, a pterodactyl in it's natural habitat. The pterodactyl first spots a protestor and a mark. The mark, having an alliance with the protestor, defends him. The pterodactyl first screams in it's distinctive high pitched voice. It then attempts to attack the mark with it's claws, but is defeated. The pterodactyl, not one for giving up, continues attacking the mark, but once again lies on the ground defeated. Truly a wonderful creature. Dubstep:

    The Supreme Court was subject to a security breach when a spectator sneaked a video camera into Wednesday’s proceedings and filmed a protester who disrupted an oral argument. The clandestine footage, posted on YouTube, is the first known video footage of a Supreme Court proceeding to be made public. It isn’t clear what type of device was used to make the recording. High court outbursts are rare. Before Wednesday, the last notable disruption of a Supreme Court proceeding came during a 2006 abortion case.

  • Occupy Chicago Protestor Is Getting Paid $22/Hour Plus Overtime

    A Chicago-based "Occupy Wall Street" protestor is allegedly getting paid -- more than many Americans with actual jobs -- to protest corporate greed and the unemployment rate in the United States. Business Insider has obtained a video interview of a seemingly well-informed Chicago protestor who mentions -- almost in passing -- that he gets paid $22 an hour plus overtime to participate in a Chicago offshoot of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests. The man describes his protesting work as a "full time gig" and added that an unnamed benefactor, who is presumably providing the salary, is "getting [his] money's worth."
