Last night, New York's Mayor Bloomberg (one of the richest men on this planet) decided the Wall Street protesters were a "health hazard" and sent body-armored and heavily-armed riot police into the privately-owned park at 1 AM to tear down the tents and arrest the protesters. Originally the charge was "creating a health hazard," but it was later changed to resisting arrest even though video shows nobody resisted arrest (they were all asleep in their tents when they were "subdued" with batons and pepper spray).
The protesters said they wanted to exert their right to free speech to bring attention to what is going on in America. They said America is becoming a police state controlled by the rich. I guess billionaire Bloomberg heard them and gave them his answer.
Will anybody care? We shall see.
: What do you all think of the occupy wall street movement (that has now spread far beyond New York)?
: Some questions:
: Will it help or hurt? Make a change or not? Is this deja vu all over again (the sixties)? How will it affect next year's elections?
