  • Sorry, but those people aren't kids. Unless of course you mean that their parents are still supporting them.

      Put myself through college working 40+ hours per week stocking shelves at a drug store. During the summers I worked as a laborer laying sanitary sewer lines. Finished graduate school with my loans paid off. Now I teach at a university.

      I have talked to a lot of students who drive to the city to protest with the Occupiers. The best of them are useful idiots who are easily swayed by one of my smooth-talking colleagues. They are just parroting what they are told without thinki More..

    • @Stranger456 i can respect that. i'm just not as quick to classify a college student as a child because they are still receiving help from home.

  • "Pussshhh forward!!" Peaceful my ass. What the fuck are the cops supposed to do in a situation like that? Just stand there and let a mob overtake them? And enough of this protesting "corruption" and 99% bullshit. Since when has corruption not existed in human society? Filthy ass hippies playing the role of victim. That's all these videos show; people who possess no accountability for the quality of their life, and so they seek to place the blame on anyone but themselves More..

      Shit, the University at Berkely told them "NO". Jesus that place is one of the most liberal colleges in the states, and the administration not only supported the cops, but asked the cops for their help.

      And by the admission of one of the respondents in the article, they were doing what the school had asked them not to do, camping.

      I live about 25 miles from CU Boulder, and it is super liberal, but I think Berkeley is so far out to the left that you can't even see it from Boulder. :)

      Yeah, it could be like burning man except no open fires and no tents, and the libs would just fine. Well, they might admonish you if you were to light up a marlboro, but crack, heroin and meth are just for fun...

      Really, how long do you think you would last if you did that???
      Within seconds the cop right next to the one you grabbed would have shattered the bones in your arm with his baton.

  • if the students are disobeying lawful orders then the cops should hold the line and grab em one at a time, it's how we used to do it and no-one got hurt. after a while the crowd will break up and be on their merry way. I'm sure the students were playing up but I didn't see any petrol bombs or darts being hurled at the cops.

    • @zzwheelz What I said on the other vid posted. I think that's what I would like seen done. Your not going to move the crowd this way, especially when those in back are pushing on those getting hit.

      True, they can't move back, and the don't want to move forward. Better tactics are advised.

      If public safety is at risk. Back the police line up, give them directions, give them enough time to as a group follow the directions and only if warranted start using small doses of OC gas to move the. You absolutely MUST give them somewhere to go and time to get there.

      I thought you americans are so proud of your freedom of speech - first amendment and stuff. But when it comes to liberals to demonstrate their point of view it is okay. Why? Imho, smacking someones asses for expressing their opinon is medieval. Maybe not in islamic countries. Good point in that, but in the western world. You are totally right. In an islamic country, supressing freedom of speech is normal.

    • @SoylentHolger If you actually watch 90% of the occupy videos, these idiots attack the police, lie about injuries, and try to stage what ever they can to post on the net. Freedom of speech doesn't entail trespassing, vandalism, assault/battery. Those are the things, these protesters have come to ignore and do in the past few weeks.

  • A bit much.... I didn't see a cause for a violent response from the cops...
    on the other hand.. I don't believe the Protest is a Message to the cops... so get away from the cops... If in turn the cops take and hold ground ,, this is called a "Battle".

  • wouldnt suprise me in california for the police to do that on purpose in support of the students. That kind of response will only bring more violent protesting.

  • also, the baton jab they are using is very dangerous when not carried out correctly. it has the potential to break rib bones into vital organs etc. i noticed one cop jabbing to the head, big mistake. the offending cops were moved by a supervisor at the end.

  • Don,t need a permit to assemble on your own campus. If the police were never called it would not have become a problem. Kent State! Don,t forget.

    • @hagop13 Kent State students were burning down buildings. Not too peaceful. They got what they deserved.
      Typical hippie... assault a cop and get bashed in the head and they cry police brutality. LOL!

  • clear unprovoked brutality. that berkeley is all liberal peace-loving on the surface, but when it comes down to business it's more like the gestapo.
