He keeps asking why they are doing "this" so he's still being an idiot and not exclusively talking about a prior event he witnessed.
How about let the people march and protest instead of fucking with them like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eOmKyS7Wik&feature=youtu.beHe keeps asking why they are doing "this" so he's still being an idiot and not exclusively talking about a prior event he witnessed.
I've just started watching and the cops are just standing there. He's implying that the cops are hurting people, but I don't see it. He keeps saying "leave these people alone;" but they aren't messing with anyone. They're just standing around, watchful, ready to be of assistance if anything bad happens.
Big-talker seems like a total douche.
He saw some people apprehended earlier and acts like there couldn't have possibly been a reason for it.
Seriously, OP. There is something wrong with you.
and I guess you can't comprehend that he was speaking to those cops as the NYPD in general...or it was done to make a point and not just yell at some random cops.He saw some people apprehended and can't comprehend that there might have been a reason for it.
So you are saying that the cops in the video weren't there to keep the peace and were guilty of doing something they shouldn't just because you have another video of something else entirely?How about let the people march and protest instead of fucking with them like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eOmKyS7Wik&feature=youtu.be
Do you really think there's been no violence against protesters?
See the post by slayer202 above you. It's a rant against the NYPD in general, but he needs to rant at somebody.So you are saying that the cops in the video weren't there to keep the peace and were guilty of doing something they shouldn't just because you have another video of something else entirely?
You have a point, and that's why people oppose the corruption that misuses our armed forces to begin with for missions to benefit corporations and such.He may be feeling betrayed by his own country upon witnessing the police actions against the citizens and idealistic way of life he risked his own life to protect.
Young men and women often idealistically believe in proudly serving a country worthy of their sacrifice. Some may call this being naive. Others call it believing in what is right. When those veterans become aware of the imperfections of their government, they can feel betrayed by the same government they sacrificed their time, energy, and risked their lives for.
I can relate to this since this is exactly how I feel about this country I have served.
I don't much agree with most of the OWS movement, but I can understand the Marine's frustration if he truly witnessed police unprovokedly manhandling a bunch of protesters; as annoying as they might be, they're still citizens as he puts it.I'd love to see you say that to his face.
It used to be called "pig baiting". It's essentially trolling in RL. You get a bunch of people tiptoeing on the edge of the law, yelling insults and rhetoric at the cops, waiting until either one of the cops gets pissed and acts up or one of the crowd gets violent.These "peaceful protests" are made of passive aggresives that are just looking and waiting for the one agitator of their group to make their move. When that happens, the passives become active and then they become physical and that's when people get tazed, clubbed, and pushed by the cops. The "peaceful" protesters actually want this to happen. This is what gets them more attention.
Watch the cop punch the woman in the green shirt at 0:18.Those cops are just doing their jobs, in the same way that he was just doing his job in Iraq/Afghanistan. He of all people should know that.
The cops would rather pepper spray and drag off young white women; http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/09/25/1020012/-NYPD-pepperspray-women-behind-barricade-at-OccupyWallStreet-is-Viral-(UPDATE:-w-victim-testimony)
Really? Because what I saw was some girls just standing there behind the barrier, where they belong, and getting maced for absolutely no reason. Real classy act there by the police.Funny, only thing I saw in that video were some people get sprayed because they don't know how to stay behind a barrier, and decided to keep pushing it out into the street.
Can't see what she does first, hard to say if she slapped him, pushed him or hit him. It is obvious that she does something, but a shitty camera angle doesn't show what she did.

He's not on active duty, this is the second person who has suggested that discharged personnel should adhere to military dress codes. He's also in violation of the USMC's civilian dress codes too. We should go report him to his nonexistent supervisor! Time for some EMI!Uh, guys, the cops weren't scared of him in the slightest. An angry guy ranting on a street corner is nothing new in any major city. I also don't see anything in the video that suggests the cops were doing anything other than making sure things don't turn violent because some OWS twit decides to do something stupid(er).
Second, this guy can't even wear the DCU properly. Reviewing the video.
-Beard (Possible shaving waiver in place while active duty)
-Sleeves 3/4s rolled up
-Ribbons on the DCU blouse
-DCU blouse unbuttoned
Exactly. They are more rolling their eyes than anything. I don't see anyone afraid of him. All they need to do is pull their taser out and zap him and he's on the ground like M.J Fox.Cops are just ignoring him, almost like he's not even there. No shitting in the pants seen.
Sure, because they couldn't just pepper spray him if they felt he should be arrested.If that was a regular protestor he would have gotten his ass beat for disobeying their orders. So yeah, they were scared shitless of him. Big black guy who happens to be a marine, someone's going to get hurt.
