Police Pepper Spray 84-Year Old Woman, Priest, Pregnant Woman and Blind Woman with a Cane

Even though the Seattle City Council unanimously voted to support the Occupy protests, Seattle police pepper sprayed an 84-year old woman, a priest and a pregnant woman:



Here’s the pregnant woman after being sprayed:

The police did not daintily spray a little, but rather did this:

And here’s pepper spray being sprayed right into the face of a woman in Portland:

  • When will the Occupy protesters wake up to the fact that they cannot change the world through peaceful means alone? When a group of protesters declares themselves as “peaceful” and are unwilling to elevate their cause to the next level (contrary to every other successful revolution throughout history), the game is pretty much over for them; they have essentially revealed their poker hand to the opposition. Now knowing that these protesters will never cross that border to violence, the opposition forces move forward to dismantle and destroy any organized symbols of solidarity (a.k.a. tents and encampments of the Occupy Movement).

    Forgive the cliché, but in order to make a cake, you have to break a few eggs! As we all know, the American Revolution wasn’t won by holding signs, or by shouting slogans, or being polite and peaceful. Our nation’s independence and our various liberties were won by fighting the ugliest of wars; one in which the loss of blood and life was not only expected by every American, but obligatory.

    Let’s not mince words: Politicians in Washington D.C. (and around the world) are the enemy: they strive for a “divide and conquer” (them vs. us) attitude. They have been bought by corporate interests and are more than willing to utilize that aspect to do their bidding, whenever asked.

    The Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (along with their respective subsidiaries) are the enemy: they are a financial cabal working to slowly replace the sovereign leaders of countries throughout the world with their own operatives in order to seize total control of the world, its people, and its assets (former Prime Minister Papandreou with IMF stooge Papademos in Greece, and former Italian President Berlusconi with Mario Monte, to mention a couple).

    Corporations all over the world are the enemy: they are beholden to the Federal Reserve and their shareholders that expect an increase in profits, year after year. If that means jobs here in America must be outsourced to China, or elsewhere in order to increase their dividends, then so be it. They also own the mainstream media and tell us what they want us to see, hear, think, believe, buy and obey.

    Since our world has been infected by these financially-corrupt groups (many of which are now controlling our respective governments), acting out against any one of them should not be considered an act of terrorism, but an act of patriotism; just as it was back when the common people of a burgeoning America rose up to defend their rights and freedoms against an oppressive British regime in order to establish a new nation.

    In short, the extent of corruption infecting our globe is at epidemic proportions. If we the people – the 99% – don’t take physical action now to stop the endemic disease being brought forth by our enemies, we can pretty much say goodbye to our way of life and everything that we’ve all known to grow and love.

    You see? Just like you, I’m one person out of the 99%. And just like you, I’m willing to not only think about what is happening to our world, but eager to act out in its defense and sacrifice myself by stating my views, beliefs and opinions (even though those beliefs may land me in federal prison). But if I’m willing to go to prison for YOU, shouldn’t YOU be willing to do the same for others; if only to wake them up, or to change their history in order to ensure a better world for humanity and that of their children?)

  • guess again

    You are exactly right. One of these days the police ARE going to kill someone though. It might be manslaughter, they’ll beat someone too hard and he or she will die in hospital. Or they might kill someone in the street. And since it never seems to take too long before the offending officer is fingered, there might be some disappearances before open violence. Either way, this will only escalate.
