Is OWS responsible for the actions of the people that freely group under its banner? As I recall the left insisted that the Conservatives were completely responsible for a couple signs at one Tea Party rally. Murder, suicide, rape, beatings, robberies, riots, destruction of private property assault of police, fire. All under the banner of OWS. Are they responsible for the actions of the people they gather together under their banner? Will the Portland OWS be responsible if its people riot and use weapons to attack police when they clear the illegal camp grounds?
