Police Use Brutality In Attempt To End The Peaceful "Occupy Wall Street" Protest

No jobs, buried in debt, and running out of hope, Americans have taken to the streets...more specifically, a group of protestors exercising their First Amendment Rights have for weeks now held a successful siege of a small part of New York's financial district.  Self described billionaire Potentate and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has decided this peaceful protest is not good for his city, has decided to use force, even brutality to bring it to an end as New York's not so finest stoop to using what is referred too in most quarters as police brutality to move people out of spaces that Michael Bloomberg wants them out of...such as his dearly beloved financial district and Times Square.   I guess he has decided the message being delivered by these new American Heroes is not good for business?  Or perhaps he knows there is a very real chance that this simple peaceful protest is coming perilously close to becoming a movement?  (pictures and video of police brutality)

Today saw about 5000 protestors march through Times Square, and with some 20 million out of work, or under employed Americans facing the same financial problems as the protesters, I have to wonder where additional support and participation is...seriously, illegal aliens and their supporters managed to put a half a million people out on the street in Los Angeles, and the best we oppressed Americans can do is put 5000 people out on the street in New York City...are we that apathetic these days?  Are we willing to march to our own demise without a word of protest, meek lambs willingly marching to the gallows as Big Business and a corrupt government do their best to eliminate the middle class?  Wake up Americans...the "Occupy Wall Street" protest is possibly the most important social movement in America since the civil rights marches of the 60's, and it is time that we join those in New York and other cities out on the protest lines, time that we peacefully express our discontent with the status quo on Wall Street, and in Washington DC.

Mayor Bloomberg is using Police State tactics, and that kind of action can only be stopped with overwhelming numbers of FREE CITIZENS marching in unison in numbers so great that the police have no choice but to see the wisdom in letting us exercise our First Amendment Rights which include five fundamental rights:


The First Amendment says that people have the right to speak freely without government interference.


The First Amendment gives the press the right to publish news, information and opinions without government interference. This also means people have the right to publish their own newspapers, newsletters, magazines, etc.


The First Amendment prohibits government from establishing a religion and protects each person's right to practice (or not practice) any faith without government interference.


The First Amendment says that people have the right to appeal to government in favor of or against policies that affect them or that they feel strongly about. This freedom includes the right to gather signatures in support of a cause and to lobby legislative bodies for or against legislation.


The First Amendment says that people have the right to gather in public to march, protest, demonstrate, carry signs and otherwise express their views in a nonviolent way. It also means people can join and associate with groups and organizations without interference.

Before Billionaire Potentate Michael Bloomberg continues his wrong sighted attempts to deny citizens those basic rights,  perhaps he should sit down and read the First Amendment, taking special note of our protected right of Assembly.  America is not Syria, New York City is not Daraa, and yet much like Assad, Bloomberg is stooping to the use of fear, intimidation and brutality against American Citizens exercising their basic constitutional rights.
