“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
JPMorgan Chase recently donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the New York City Police Foundation. The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple. The money will pay for 1,000 new patrol car laptops, as well as security monitoring software in the NYPD’s main data center.
New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing “profound gratitude” for the company’s donation.
“These officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe,” Dimon said. “We’re incredibly proud to help them build this program and let them know how much we value their hard work.”
So, right before Occupy Wall Street starts, a major bank donates a ton of money to the NYPD. Remind me again, who are the police protecting?
Police mercenaries, protecting the ones that pay the most. Irony of it all is that we, the people pay the most, through taxes.
Government Orders You Tube To Censor Protest Videos
In a frightening example of how the state is tightening its grip around the free Internet, it has emerged that You Tube is complying with thousands of requests from governments to censor and remove videos that show protests and other examples of citizens simply asserting their rights, while also deleting search terms by government mandate.
The latest example is You Tube’s compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.
This is what’s called Fascism.
Yeah, you see this? Now is pretty much the time to be scared.
while frightening, please note that YOUTUBE IS NOT CENSORING #OCCUPYWALLSTREET IN THE UNITED STATES.
not all of it. not yet.
Identified: NYPD Officer Who Maced Peaceful Protesters
A photographer has identified the cruel and cowardly NYPD supervisor who point blank maced a penned in group of young women and then slinked away Saturday at the Occupy Wall Street protests:
Deputy Inspector Anthony V. Bologna of the NYPD Patrol Borough Manhattan South.
If you think Deputy Inspector Bologna should be fired and prosecuted for his abuse of power, file an on-line complaint:
This is SO important. If you’re outraged at my story, please consider filing a complaint.
I am the 99%.
I was turned down for private healthcare due to my (lifelong) medical conditions, and have been told I need to be “sign, symptom and treatment free for 10 years” before reapplying.
I am self-employed due to my health issues, which preclude me from a normal 9-5 job. Due to being self-employed, I am now several thousands in debt to the IRS.
Because I am in debt to the IRS, I cannot have a bank account or they will take every penny I own. Instead, I incur charges with every check cashed.
I went through a bankruptcy before age 30 to discharge my enormous medical debt (which was incurred WHILE I had insurance, or it would have been higher).
I AM THE 99% AND SO ARE YOU.
The peaceful Occupy Wall Street protest march turned violent as the NYPD corralled and pepper sprayed the participants. Mass arrests were made and loaded onto a NYC bus further locking traffic. The protest march took a route from Zuccotti Park to Union Square on East 14th Street. The protesters were marching back to Zuccotti Park when the NYPD turned violent. Hitting, arresting and forcing protesters into a small area. At that point a NYPD supervisor yelled shut up to one of the protesters and shot pepper spray into her eyes point blank range and hitting a half dozen protesters (including 3 police officers) when they had nowhere to go. The same supervising officer was seen (photographed) laughing after the arrests while looking at his text messages.
why is this real life? i don’t understand
