    Occupy San Fran. protesters now carrying shivs

    Occupy San Fran. protesters now carrying shivs

    The Occupy rallies are devolving into the equivalent of the prison yard, as reflected in multiple incidents around the country of rape and killing, and this story about the slashing of a San Francisco police officer with a type of shiv commonly used by prison gangs (h/t reader):

    One San Francisco police officer was slashed by a razor and another had his uniform torn and cheek cut in a clash with Occupy San Francisco protesters Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

    About 3:30 p.m., near the Embarcadero and Broadway, police attempted to prevent marching demonstrators from blocking the intersection where MUNI light rail tracks are located.

    A female protester emerged from the crowd and an “exacto razor blade attached to a pen or pencil-like object,” San Francisco police said in an email.

    “The female slashed the inside of the officer’s hand and ran back into the crowd before the officer had time to realize he was cut,” police said.

    In a second incident, a protester grabbed an officer’s police radio and ran back into the crowd. As the officer attempted to retrieve it, a second protester blocked the officer and tore his uniform and cut his cheek, police said,
    intimating that a weapon had been used.

    This is just another of those “can you imagine if the Tea Party did that” moments.

    Ah yes, there’s nothing like violence, rape, theft, murder, drug selling and drug use, pimping, prostitution, assaults, urinating and defecating on public and private property, and Police cars, blowing up cars, as well as burning down the whole city, to make one feel all warm and cozy inside, as all this is for our Freedom and Justice from the that terrible thing called Economic Prosperity of Capitalism, that all the bankers and corporations are stealing from us, by giving us loans to buy houses and cars with, and good paying jobs to pay for all of it, and the US Constitution of guaranteed Rights, Freedoms, Liberties, and Independent self-determination.. Wow, they sure know how to peacefully protest.. Not like those mobs of Tea Party folks, with their families and children and signs of Lower taxes, and less spending and borrowing, and elected representative must be held accountable to the people, and so on..
