    Police in riot gear face down Occupy protesters inside bankNovember 16, 2011 | 3:11 pm Police in riot gear warned Occupy San Francisco protesters who took over the lobby of a Bank of America in the city’s financial district Wednesday that they would be arrested if they did not leave the premises. About 20 officers with helmets and batons entered the bank on California Street about 2:45 p.m. and warned protesters sitting in the lobby that they would be arrested and cited. Organizers circulated fliers advising protesters what to do if they were taken into custody. Some demonstrators left the...

    ‘Of course we’re going to riot,” Paul Howard, a 24-year-old aerospace-engineering student at Penn State University, told the New York Times. “What do they expect when they tell us at 10 o’clock that they fired our football coach?” The coach in question, as we all know, is Joe Paterno, the decades-long patriarch of Penn State football. Paterno was fired by the board of trustees for his part in a reprehensible non-response to the alleged rape of a ten-year-old boy in the locker-room showers. You have to wonder what’s wrong with our society when someone can say, “Of course we’re going...

    OAKLAND -- Work crews and employees of trashed buildings in downtown Oakland set to work this morning cleaning up from the post-midnight riot that broke out after Occupy Oakland's daylong general strike.

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Police used tear gas and flash-bang canisters Tuesday night to disperse a group of hundreds of Occupy Oakland protesters that was calling for the crowd to retake Franklin Ogawa Plaza by city hall. The tear gas and flash-bang canisters were used by police at about 7:45 p.m. near the intersection of 14th and Broadway. The crowd of 500-to-1,000 people immediately cleared with people rushing away from the scene with their hands and handkerchiefs covering their faces. KTVU reporter Jana Katsuyama was on the scene when the tear gas was used and said that the gas remained in...

    A traffic accident involving an Israeli driver and a Palestinian Authority youth sparked a riot on Friday morning near the city of Kiryat Arba. The Arab youth was hit and critically injured by the car at a local gas station. The cause of the accident is not yet clear. As paramedics tended to the youth, PA Arabs from Hevron and nearby towns began to riot and to attack security personnel at the scene. Police made several arrests, but the mob was undeterred. As the riot continued to spiral into violence, police began using rubber bullets to force the crowd away...

    The artwork associated with a political movement says a lot about that movement. The US Day of Rage’s Twitter feed features a photo of a defaced ten-dollar bill. Someone has added black hair and a Hitler moustache to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, whom Congress honored in 1999 as “the man who more than any other designed the Government of the United States.” The Founders as Nazis: that’s what the leftists who plan to occupy Wall Street tomorrow think of the American experiment. It’s not as if the media-savvy organizers of the US Day of Rage don’t understand the significance of...

    Three people were arrested Saturday night when a melee that a police spokesman described as a "mini-riot" broke out in downtown Minneapolis after a teen dance party. Dozens of police officers from Minneapolis, the State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies responded to a chaotic scene after the Big Bash 2 party, which was held in an exhibition hall next to the Hyatt Regency Hotel at 1300 Nicollet Mall. At about 10 p.m., police responded to a report that hotel security employees were fighting with event-goers, said police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer. Shortly after that, partygoers began moving north on...

    CNN journalists described the Friday mob that attacked them during the riot at the Israeli embassy as “animals.” One other journalist was called a spy and was almost raped. The worldwide news site reported a scene that brought back ugly memories of the gang rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan earlier this year during the Arab spring uprising against the Mubarak regime. CNN reported that one person in the mob on Friday called Dina Amer, a woman member of another American crew, “a spy.” A CNN producer who is an Egyptian approached to rescue the woman from the rioters, but...

According to The Daily Greenburgh, 3,000 Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, the final day in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, were visiting the park when women attempted to board rides wearing their hijab. When ride operators enforced the park policy forbidding headgear on rides, and refunds were refused -- a fight broke out. The police were called and 15 people including...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton abruptly backed out yesterday of a symposium on the 1991 Crown Heights riots after his invitation triggered outrage. Sharpton said he would not appear on a panel discussing the "State of Black-Jewish Relations: Twenty Years After Crown Heights" because it would "pain" Norman Rosenbaum, whose brother Yankel was stabbed to death during four days of rioting. After the invitation to Sunday's symposium at The Hampton Synagogue on Long Island was disclosed, Rosenbaum denounced it as "an absolute disgrace." He said Sharpton's "vile rhetoric incited the rioting."

    The Rev. Al Sharpton may skip a panel discussion in the Hamptons on the 1991 Crown Heights riots after Jewish leaders blasted the organizer for inviting him. "I may or may not go. I refuse to play into their extremism," Sharpton said last night. "If it is not an event that will heal, it is not an event that I will partake in." Controversial rabbi-to-the stars Marc Schneier planned the Sunday confab to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the violence in Brooklyn between blacks and Hasidic Jews. Schneier defended his decision to invite Sharpton, saying the event will focus...

    Twenty years ago this Friday a tragic car accident in Crown Heights Brooklyn escalated into a pogrom against the Jewish people. The media gives it a politically correct description, violence between the area’s Blacks and Jews. However the violence was not two-sided. The Crown Heights riot was an attack on the Jews by the neighborhood’s Caribbean community, fueled in part by Al Sharpton, now an MSNBC host and adviser to President Obama. Black Antisemitism in the Summer of 1991 Jews were a key part of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, when the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. made...

    It’s not yet sunset in the UK, so we don’t know if a fourth night of rioting will follow the first three. But the glee and impunity with which rioters torched and looted large sections of London are an indictment of two beloved project of British and other European elites: a disarmed citizenry and an all-encompassing, cradle-to-grave welfare state. It’s hard to imagine riots of these size going on for days on end in the American South or Midwest simply because so many armed, law-abiding citizens would stand ready to defend their lives, liberty and property. Once you’ve shot a...
