    Darryl Jones doesn’t have plans to celebrate Mother’s Day. At a time when households are honoring the maternal bonds of the family unit, Jones, the boys basketball coach of city-power Satellite Academy in the Bronx, which has won three of the past five city championships in the PSAL’s Alternative League, has a more pressing matter to deal with. Jones’ daughter is missing, and hasn’t been seen by her family or heard from since April 27. Stevie Bates, a 19-year-old former cheerleader at the Bronx High School of Science, with an infectious smile and shoulder-length blond dreadlocks, was traveling cross-country with...
  • Occupier Thanks Former Soviet Citizen for 'Converting' Him to Capitalism, Pro-Israel, Pro-USA

      This is just downright amazing and frankly I'm surprised this video slipped under the radar. Here, a man who was born and lived for decades in the Soviet Union successfully converts an Occupier to Capitalism, to understand Israel's side of the Middle East conflict, and to pro-American ideals all within a 15 minute time frame. He even thanks the man afterwards. Give props where they're due, at least the Occupier was willing to hear the man out without screaming in his face, unlike almost every single one of them.  The video was shot during the May Day protests in...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- It was only a few nights after the Occupy protesters began sleeping in his church sanctuary when the Rev. Bob Brashear realized that his laptop was missing. The refugees from Manhattan's Zuccotti Park had found their way to his cavernous Presbyterian church on a cold winter evening, hoping to stay for a few nights, maybe longer. It was the latest stopover for the nomadic group, which has been living in a rotating series of churches since the city shut down its camp in November. "There was a sense of shock and sadness that it had happened,"...

    Ever since September, when activists heeded Adbusters editor Kalle LasnÂ’s call to Occupy Wall Street, itÂ’s become a rite of passage for reporters, bloggers, and video trackers to go to the occupiersÂ’ tent cities and comment on what they see. Last week, the day after New York mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered the NYPD to dismantle the tent city in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, the New York Times carried no fewer than half a dozen articles on the subject. Never in living memory has such a small political movement received such disproportionate attention from the press. Never in living memory...

    A city man working on the sanitation team at the Occupy Wall Street protests was featured on the MTV show “True Life” on Nov. 5. In the episode “I’m Occupying Wall Street,” 23-year-old Bryan Guyette is seen rallying his fellow protesters to clean up Zuccotti Park in the financial district, where thousands of people have staged demonstrations demanding economic equality since September 17. Guyette, who has been at the park almost non-stop since day one, worked to end a tense stand-off between protesters and the New York City police department, which planned to forcibly evict the massive crowd Oct. 13...

    A New York City judge has upheld City Hall's decision to evict protesters from Zuccotti Park, denying a court order issued by attorneys on their behalf, the Associated Press reports. The eviction began early Tuesday morning when hundreds of police officers in riot gear before raided the New York City park where the Occupy Wall Street protests began, evicting and arresting dozens of protesters from what has become the epicenter of the worldwide movement with other cities, such as Dallas and London likely to follow suit.

"You can come back after we clean it up but when you come back you can't bring any tents or anything to stay overnight." And they went out and found a judge, "Oh, no, you can't do that, Mr. Mayor.

    Downtown residents and business owners angry that their neighborhood has been occupied for two months by the Wall Street demonstration are staging a protest of the protest Monday, declaring that City Hall has let it get out of control. Angry over all-day drumming, people urinating and defecating on the streets and verbal attacks from protesters, organizers say they will rally at City Hall Monday to send officials a message. "Laws are clearly being violated and we simply want them enforced," Lower Manhattan resident Linda Gertsman told NBC New York. Exasperated residents and businesses said they are "pursuing all options," including...

That's what demonstrators have dubbed the sickness that seems to be spreading among them at an unpleasantly high rate these days: "It's a real thing," Willie Carey, 28, told the New York Times.

    So much has been said about this movement, it has no discernible point, it smells, it's violent, it has rapes, arson, assault, vandalism, theft and psychotics running the place along with a growing rap sheet, so I wasn't sure what else I could find. Since the encampments have become more and more dangerous, I wasn't sure I wanted to risk it, but I went anyway. I went back to Zucotti Square yesterday because David Crosby and Graham Nash were going to perform and since I had the afternoon free I figured I'd head down to check out the absurd scenery....

    Occupy Wall Street got its confiscated generators back on Tuesday after its legal team pressed the Fire Department of New York to release them. The machines were picked up from the New York City Fire Academy at Randall's Island by the Wikileaks truck, which has been stationed next to Zuccotti Park since the protest's inception. The vehicle with the generator on board made its way back to Zuccotti Park hours before a planned concert by Graham Nash and David Crosby. Yetta Kurland, a lawyer representing the protesters, said the generators did not violate any FDNY code. The protesters have been...

    Mayor Bloomberg said by Occupy Wall Street protesters not reporting crimes in Zuccotti Park, they were “allowing the criminal to strike again.” Mayor Bloomberg ripped into Occupy Wall Street protesters on Thursday for not reporting crimes at Zuccotti Park - calling their inaction "despicable." Bloomberg said the demonstrators have a practice of surrounding a troublemaker and then evicting them from the park instead of calling the NYPD. "If this is in fact happening - and it's very hard to get good information - it is despicable," the infuriated mayor said. "I think it is outrageous and it really allows the...

    Mayor Bloomberg struck a tougher tone with the Occupy Wall Street protestors Wednesday - and said the city might be forced to "take actions" at Zuccotti Park. Bloomberg said the city must listen to the residents and business owners near the protest site who are starting to loudly complain about the demonstrators. "This isn't an occupation of Wall Street," Bloomberg told reporters. "It's an occupation of a growing, vibrant residential neighborhood in Lower Manhattan and it's really hurting small businesses and families." Bloomberg's harsh assessment came a day after he received a letter from Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver, Rep. Jerrold...

    Now we are expected to believe that Bernie Madoff, once a star of the one-percenters, could run the kind of elaborate Ponzi scheme he did and steal billions under the nose of the SEC, but not know how many sleeping pills he and his wife needed to take themselves out. Like he finally forgot how to count. Apparently Madoff and his wife Ruth, who failed spectacularly at killing themselves, apparently now intend to kill the rest of us telling their pathetic story. Somehow a thief and rat like Bernie Madoff is still treated as if he should be in beer...
