I don't know about you guys, but if I were a member of the Oakland, CA police department, I'd be quivering in abject fear. This clip confirms the age-old adage: He who arrests rioting occupiers risks incurring the wrath of Cuffy the Citizen Justice Avenger (language warning):
Does. He. Make. Him. Self. Clear? He sure does -- especially when he's sending YouTube missives to Paramount Pictures to complain about continuity errors in the Sci Fi series Deep Space Nine. I thought this had to be a parody until I watched his other videos. He owns handcuffs, y'all. Run.
Yes, I understand it's completely unfair to lampoon, discredit, or impugn the motives of an entire group of people based on the words or actions of a few solitary kooks. (Although that's precisely what the Left did to the Tea Party). In Cuffy's case, I just couldn't resist. Mea culpa. On a far graver note, these 'Occupy' rallies may require even more police -- to help prevent and investigate the beatings and gang rapes (via Ace and Verum Serum):
Officers are hunting a group of men who entered the site in George Square, Glasgow, where demonstrations were taking place, early this morning…“There was a gang of about three men in the tent with the girl at the time and she sounded as if she was crying while they were doing God knows what to her. Everyone is quite shaken up about this and there is a real concern that this will bring an end to what has been a peaceful protest.”
Three young punks threatened to kill a 24-year-old Occupy Wall Street protester for pressing charges over an assault at the group's Zuccotti Park encampment, police said. "You got our friend arrested. We're gonna kill you! Watch your back!" the trio warned the young woman on Monday - two days after her complaint led to the arrest of Garfield Leslie, police said Tuesday. Leslie, 19, of Brooklyn, had offered to sell the woman drugs at the downtown sit-in, police said. When she declined that offer and his romantic advances, he punched her in the face and then dished out more blows to a friend who had come to her defense, police said. After clocking the friend, police said, Leslie then punched the man's girlfriend for good measure.
I'll leave you with this chaotic scene in Oakland, where protesters pelted a small ring of riot police with paint:
Friendly reminder: The Democratic Party endorsed this "movement."
UPDATE: Go to town, Glenn Beck.
