  • 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: https://soundcloud.com/zmcd/mark-mark-mark

    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."

    THOUSAND OAKS -- A 65 year old man had his finger bitten off Wednesday evening at a health care rally in Thousand Oaks, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department. Sheriff's investigators were called to Hillcrest and Lynn Road at 7:26 p.m. About 100 protesters sponsored by MoveOn.org were having a rally supporting health care reform. A group of anti-health care reform protesters formed across the street. When someone from the pro-reform side crossed over to the anti-reform side, a fist fight ensued, which resulted in the man's pinky finger getting bitten off. It's believed the man was on the...

    JERUSALEM (Map, News) - An American demonstrator was critically wounded Friday in a clash between protesters and Israeli troops over Israel's West Bank separation barrier. Peace activists with the International Solidarity Movement said Tristan Anderson, of the Oakland, Calif., area, was struck in the head with a tear gas canister fired by Israeli troops. The military and the Tel Aviv hospital where Anderson was taken had no details on how he was hurt. "He's in critical condition, anesthetized and on a ventilator and undergoing imaging tests," said Orly Levi, a spokeswoman at the Tel Hashomer hospital. She described Anderson's condition...

    DENVER - A federal judge on Monday tossed out a lawsuit filed by peace protesters who said their free speech rights were violated when Colorado Springs officials barred them from demonstrating within sight of a NATO meeting in 2003. Judge Richard Matsch said the steps city officials took to control protests were reasonable, especially after the theft several months earlier of 450 pounds of a fertilizer-fuel oil mix similar to the bomb that killed 168 people in Oklahoma City in 1995. The plaintiffs, members of a Colorado Springs-based group that opposes government attempts to militarize space, have not yet decided...

And, they honor him in their museums for his support to this day.

Jamal Holiday of Manhattan, who turns 20 today, will likely be spending his birthday in jail for assaulting Detective William Sample Jr., according to the source. Sample, meanwhile, was on the mend at home. The 10-year veteran who usually investigates taxi-business crimes, was badly bruised and suffered internal injuries in the attack that Mayor Bloomberg called "outrageous."
