Is this why it's illegal in more and more places in Amerika to video-record police arrests?  What does it mean to you that there are video-cameras in about every police car to 'prove' that a suspect is wrong and the police are right, yet it's illegal for an American citizen to video-record a policeman making an arrest?  To prevent 'Rodney King's's' from sueing for police brutality?  Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want to live anywhere that didn't have police available, I think that they have the 'toughest job' beyond a doubt, police would be the last department that I would make cutbacks in, but ...they cannot be above the law.

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity, but the one that removes awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside. --Allan Bloom

Occupy Wall Street

Sep 30, 2011    


 In New York City's Financial District, hundreds of activists have been converging on Lower Manhattan over the past two weeks, protesting as part of an "Occupy Wall Street" movement. The protests are largely rallies against the influence of corporate money in politics, but participants' grievances also include frustrations with corporate greed, anger at financial and social inequality, and several other issues. Nearly 80 people were arrested last weekend in a series of incidents with the New York police as the protesters attempted to march uptown. Most are now camped out in nearby Zucotti Park. Demonstrations also took place yesterday in San Francisco, and an "Occupy Boston" protest is planned for tonight, September 30. Collected here are a handful of images of the protesters occupying Wall Street from the past two weeks. [35 photos]
