The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Escape From Occupy New York

Written By: Bob - Nov• 06•11

It’s gone a bit insane:

“Every single night it’s the same thing. I mean, some guy was a victim of rape!” an officer snarls. “There comes a time when it’s over. This is a disaster. It’s all we’re doing, every two seconds, is locking somebody up every time. It’s done.

“It’s done,” he repeats. “Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest.”

Scenes like this — and far worse — have been playing out since the Zuccotti Park “occupation” began on Sept. 17.

The parcel is now a sliver of madness, rife with sex attacks, robberies and vigilante justice.

If you can stomach reading to the third page of the article, you’ll find out that rapes of both sexes are occurring, and sexual assault is just one of many crimes rampant in Occupy New York. Anecdotal stories from some of the other Occupy protests are no better, and you have to wonder if the smaller and less known protests are more lawful, or just less covered by the media.

    Nothing out of the Occupy Houston crowd, or the Occupy Syracuse crowd[the latter is where I was born. Still have family there] The Syracuse one doesn’t surprise me much as far as the fact there is actually an Occupy event going on there. It’s a college town after all.

    Of course Occupy Houston is well-behaved. Texas has carry-concealed, a castle doctrine (that allows you to shoot anywhere on your property after dark, even outside), and a grand jury system that regularly no-bills righteous shoots.

    To quote Heinlein — “An armed society is not necessarily a safer society, but it is a polite society.”
