    Police include Occupy movement on

    If people from the Occupy movement can be considered terrorists for protesting, what's to stop the government from classifying them as enemies under the new laws? (In the US, not London of course.)

    The left and obama. It's their people.

    Wait until the DNC convention. They'll find out just how much they're their people.

    But is it a terrorist behavior? Does that make them a military target?

    Can you read? You article is about London police. Last I checked, Britain is not subject to American law.
    Maybe you should be classified as a terrorist against common sense.

    I made it pretty clear I am talking about the classification in the UK handed to the Occupy movement as terrorism. If you have nothing to add the conversation simply don't reply to the thread.

    I'm still trying to figure out what the changes to the law as it was finally passed mean.

    But yes, if those changes have not removed the arbitrary nature of the detentions allowable, then Occupy could be labeled a "terrorist" organization and anyone participating in it locked up without recourse. So could the Tea Party. So, for that matter, could the Republican Party or, if Obama is not reelected, the Democratic Party. At worst, this could be the making of a one-party dictatorship.

    It'll be nice to take a deep breath, stroll along the mountain streams and thank God for our freedoms we have in this country.....as our every move is being watched by a military UAV hovering overhead unheard and unseen with hellfire missile capabilities.
