    I do not support thees douche bags at all, but I dont begrudge them there right to protest. The news is starting to honestly report on the violence and vandalism committed by an element in the crowds. Whats not being reported are the efforts of the protesters who want non violence to remove the troublemakers from the crowed, or how the peaceful protesters are being shouted down and run off. There are even some OWS folks who are scrubbing graffiti off the walls and cleaning up the mess left by the Anarchist infiltrators in Oakland.

    Yep. That's only partly out of moral concern or civic virtue, of course. As long as Occupy remains nonviolent it has the moral high ground. If the movement turns violent, it will lose public support and provide the government a justification for using violence in return.

    It's a start. Problems need to be anticipated and addressed. It's to their credit when they do. :):):)

    True. They need to let the cops have the trouble makers. Like the New York OWS did with the rapist. And the press should get some video of them cleaning up in Oakland. Not that I want it to continue, but its not fair to portray them all as rioters.

    Yep. All valid concern. Some actions Legal.
    Some Actions Nonviolent and Nondestructive.
    Some actions Violent and destructive, even if unsanctioned, they are responsible, and should learn from their mistakes.

    If they learn, if the Cops learn, there is good in it.
    Who knows what Tomorrow holds?
