72. Um, you brought up the subjects of torture and Iraq.

 

And the OP is implying that somebody, somewhere thinks the police are always in the right. I don't think you'll find anyone on DU who thinks that.

My opinion on the coverage? The coverage is muddled. Sometimes the police behave abominably. Sometimes people within OWS do stupid things like the guys who were arrested in Chicago most recently.

I don't know what your point is. Yeah, the police behave abominably sometimes. I don't know what else anyone could say. WE ARE IN AGREEMENT.

But when you talk about rights, I think it was absurd to the Nth degree to think that taking over other cities' public parks was some kind of protest. In that respect, OWS set itself up for a confrontation that never needed to occur.

That does not excuse the police from behaving abominably. I think what you really want is for DUers to jump up and down and act like Fascism is right around the corner. Well, sorry but...most of us don't think that.
