FBI Documents Show Plot to Kill Occupy Leaders
A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Washington, D.C.-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund yielded an FBI document containing knowledge of a plot by an unnamed group or individual to kill "leaders" of the Houston chapter of the nonviolent Occupy Wall Street movement.
Here's what the document said, according to WhoWhatWhy:
An identified as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles. (Note: protests continued throughout the weekend with approximately 6000 persons in NYC. 'Occupy Wall Street' protests have spread to about half of all states in the US, over a dozen European and Asian cities, including protests in Cleveland (10/6-8/11) at Willard Park which was initially attended by hundreds of protesters.)

4. why do you say 'in a decade'?
Remember HUAC, internment camps for Japanese, Pinkertons....
This country has always had a tug-of-war between fascism and resistance to fascism.

6. The Truth is not a Disney Movie
The institutions that currently exist have been deliberately sabotaged so any meaningful change is impossible through "lawful" channels. Suffrage by the streets is the only option open to us. The elites will respond and will respond unmercifully. The other routes to the street include barter, community gardens, developing community support groups, and self-employment offering meaningful products and services to the local community. These also will be challenged by the elites. Mother nature herself will take a significant role in shaping the possibility of empowerment for the people as opposed to just the elites or their minions.
