Raleigh police monitored the protest Monday morning, as most protesters chatted with each other. In the afternoon, dozens of additional police arrived, along with the Selective Enforcement Team. By day’s end, nine protesters were charged with second-degree trespassing.

The protesters say they’ve uncovered “evidence of robo-signing,” the practice where mortgage servicers sign documents without reading them.

7. Don't you know?

The Washington Post reported that $2 trillion has been spent since 9/11 on the "war on terror". Interference with foreclosures does terrorize the banksters, doesn't it?

8. $2 trillion that could have been spent on housing

and jobs and healthcare and education - not weapons and more surveillance and more police.

5. Cops look so cute in their little Darth Vader outfits.

Do they know how ridicules they look? Are they turning violent, in part, as a reaction to their own clownish appearance?
