While the cops in Oakland are braining veterans, the Denver PD is killing protesters with the cold.
It's 20 degrees out there right now. Last night, the temperature dropped to the teens and we got somewhere between 4 & 8 inches of snow. Of course, a few weeks ago, the Denver PD, Denver Sheriff and State Patrol came out with the hats and bats and destroyed the tents, so the occupiers are out in sleeping bags, wrapped in tarps and blankets, doing the best they can.

Last night, five of them went to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia.

And tonight, the occupyers tried putting up another tent, and the Denver pigs immediately swooped in, took it down, and arrested one of them. Now they've built an igloo, and they're huddled in it, and the DPD's demanding they take that down.

Yeah, wouldn't want protesters to shelter themselves against the cold. The Denver police would rather see them die.

Fucking pigs.

2. Wow. I admire those folks tremendously.
That's a lot of fortitude. Kind of like a hunger strike.

3. If they choose to be out there, isn't that their choice?

10. Unless you belong to the upper 1%, they are there for you.
Their brave demonstrations, their finally standing up and saying that they won't take the joblessness, the theft of America's resources and wealth by the lucky few are for your sake.

Have a little respect please. This the very first time that the problems of the 99% of Americans has gotten any thought, any mention in the palaces of the rich on Wall Street and in D.C.

4. Admiration belongs to the protesters, not those in the police uniform.

5. No igloos...they'd better explain that to all the poor children who want to play in the snow.

6. Remember this when a republican mayor wants to rob the pigs' pension fund.

No, wait. I don't think that's the way it's supposed to go.

8. Insecure pigs. They recognize who has the greater strength, so they respond
with force.

Typical fucking animals.


And no, I don't want to hear any fucking excuses for these fucking creatures. They signed up to be goons and goons they are.

11. The predictability of the repression
... is amazing. Why is it people so steadfastly refuse to learn from experience?
