I’ve tried to keep up with the occupation but so much has been going on, but I caught myself up today as much as I could and WOW. Over 10,000 protestors this past weekend. Over 700 arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge, after police (many commanders) reportedly allowed them halfway onto the bridge, then trapped the protestors by orange barricade nets. Also, amazing report (on mainstream media!) on police brutality and how it happens constantly, but we get to see a little bit thanks to cameras at the protest, which is the worst enemy of the police (and they show it)…(and of course there are many good police who do the right thing, I’ve known some). Also, more of an idea of what this protest is about- and if you live in Vegas, check out the Occupy Las Vegas group/march on Thursday Oct. 6 and occupation on Oct. 15 (at bottom). And I am still skeptical of who could be behind it all or potential infiltration… cautious skepticism is all.

imagine the images if the police were to try to reckon with former military officers in uniform…
