    I'm so sick of the cops being made out to be the bad guys in this situation. I think all the cops should give these OWS retards exactly what they want: Ignore them. Walk away. Dont even be present near them. Just go about daily patrols and ignore these dipshits.

    Let the criminals, vagrants and general public deal with the OWS'ers how they see fit. The cops should avoid the "encampments" and never come close to it. Damn 'em, let them have what they want, a copless society.

    It's the city administrators and public officials who have a responsibility to uphold the laws. Cops just enforce them at the direction of their superiors.

    Yes, they should give OWS what they want.

    Start investigating the Ponzi scheme that led to the crash and put those suckers in jail.

    Then change the laws to make sure it never happens again.

    How do you put them in jail now for things they did in the past if you have to change the laws, to make what they did illegal, to prevent it from happening in the future?

    Ever hear of a little thing called ex post facto law?

    I can't help but agree. The best thing to have been done would have been to let the people handle it on their own.

    Had the Wall Street yuppies been told that they could show up with bats and chains to clear a path to work, the encampment would never have happened. Had homeowners been informed that they could use force to stop the shitting on their doorsteps, it would not have happened more than once.

    We have a situation where one group of people follow the law and expect authority to protect them. The other group of people don't believe laws apply to them at all.

    So we have this.

    I can threaten your kids trying to get to school. I can shit on your porch. I can use the streets as a sewer, BECAUSE in MY opinion SOMEONE ELSE, did something wrong.

    To this left, this makes perfect sense. So let the people actually harmed by OWS take care of it themselves. If students don't like their way to class being blocked, get a group together and clear the space.
