    rights? Most of it is unorganised and illegal. he only reason the government is allowing them to stay is because they dont want the bad press.

    Oh, and NEVER argue with an officer when theyre performing their duty. Follow their orders and fight it in court. Arguing with them and fighting back will land you in a whole world of problems.

    More half truth videos, pathetic.

    Idiots need learn what entrapment means. It`s when a police officer convinces you to do something you wouldn`t otherwise be doing.

    Asking a crack dealer to buy some crack isn`t entrapment if they sell it to you, if they say, I don`t sell but I know someone who does and I can get it for you would be as they wouldn`t normally sell until you made the offer.

    Apparently walking in that direction was illegal at the time so if he walks that way whether or not the police say he can, he can be arrested for it.

    Honestly is it really too much to hope for 1 sniper on a roof to open fire on the police here? I`d even settle for a member of the crowd firing into the air just to see how horrible the police would react.

    @ tedgp...it`s called civil disobedience. The only laws they are breaking have to do with staying in the park after hours and things like that. There is no need for a permit or anything else. It make be illegal in your country to protest but not here. You can argue all you want. But if they arrest you...go with it then sue them. I would.

    @Betterbob...we had evidence, just cause they didnt show it to you. But he was working in another country with a group planing to bomb the US again. There are no trials in combat.

    @Klamz Two things...it only looks cool when you change one letter. Try Klams or Clamz, but both u look like a douche. Second, It is entrapment if the only reason they couldnt go down that road was because the cop told them they couldnt then he asked if he would get arrested if he went there and the cop said NO! That is entrapment!

    @Klamz, I`m confused as to your point, if you`re not making one I`ll retract this question.
    Are you saying that the police are allowed to opening lie to you and then arrest you?
    After all, there`s a fine line between giving you the order to walk that way and ordering you to walk away and informing you which direction is "allowed". To bring this issue to the core, are we to assume that the police here were protecting and serving the public. Did they gain anything from this, or would they have gained if they had not given misinformation?

    ----------

    I suggest you go and look up the laws concerning that. Because if an officer tells you to move on and you dont, then you get arrested. You can try and claim civil disobedience in court, but i`d wager the lawyers and judges in there know a hell of a lot more about the law than some random guy on the street thinking he`s right.

    @tedgp The 1st amendment of the constitution gives all Americans the right to assemble. You`re splitting hairs. The police in New York are owned by the people but receive donations from Wall street. Their interest is conflicted.
    It`s interesting to me the officers most seen abusing rights are the white shirts or senior officers of the force. New york police department will need lots of Wall street donations to survive the avalanche of lawsuits they`ve got coming for abusing their citizens civil rights.

    @Worm, I didn`t pick the name it was given to me (as any GOOD name should be) back in my cracking days. BTW love the numbers, very original!

    "the cop said NO!" Really? Cuz what I hear is the cop saying something to the tune of "Start walking then, walk there."

    The police informed them not to walk that way or they would be arrested. The man made his intentions clear he wanted to walk that way. The officer moved aside and said start walking then. The man broke the law. Cops encouraging you to do something illegal you were already going to do isn`t illegal and that`s exactly what happened here. He in no way said he would not be arrested or that it was no longer illegal to walk there, he just said go for it.

    "Are you saying that the police are allowed to opening lie to you and then arrest you? "

    It depends on the situation and the lie. In many cases, yes. It`s your job to know the law and to obey it, they are fully allowed to trick you into doing something so long as it`s something you would have done if they didn`t trick you. Like a drug dealer selling drugs. Or a street racer racing a cop at a specific illegal racing destination.

    "Did they gain anything from this, or would they have gained if they had not given misinformation?"

    While I personally prefer people act for a reason, many times people just do things for the sake of doing them with no reason at all, maybe they were fed up with him.

    A good cop wouldn`t have done that, but a dick who`s had a hard day and is sick of the protests would.

    Protestors at Fault!
    He asked "Can" I walk this way when he should have asksed
    "May" I walk this way.

    Obviously, as he is physically able, the officer answered "You `can` yes".

    Let me ask you a question madest. You have the right to peacefully assemble, however, disturbing the peace is illegal. I find a large group of shouting people to be disturbing of my peace as I can`t focus or concentrate on anything when they`re around me.

    If a single person was on the street just shouting about things, they would most likely be arrested and headed for a psych eval.

    So a single person is crazy but a group of protests are... revolutionaries?

    The 1st amendment gives you the right of freedom of speech, yet saying anything that goes against `national security` is considered treason (Bradley Manning)

    That`s a clear contradiction right there.

    So our first amendment rights are speculative on peoples opinions (the word peace) as well as already being violated (Bradley Manning) and you believe protesting over the monetary system is the right way to go?

    I see much larger issues that need to be addressed.

    @Klamz Thank you for your reply, I can now understand why the US has a bad relations with it`s police force. I`ve rewatched the video with the volume turned up, I agree the police did not state he would not be arrested, but he did tell him to walk that way and reaffirmed it with a push/weeping motion with his left arm. Have a look, I`d say at that point he is now following police orders to walk in that direction. There`s no other reason a police officer should be placing their hands on you other than to control (ignoring 1st aid etc). So from this, it seems more of a case of "come over here to be arrested" not if you go over there.

    Generations of Americans have disturbed the peace by protesting. Their protests brought about change. From women`s rights to civil rights to the end of the Vietnam war and police have abused their powers by arresting, shooting, hosing down and pepper spraying people who are exercising their freedoms and there always have been people like you who piss and moan because you don`t share their beliefs. Nobody cares. They learned to deal, you will too.

    I`m just asking a question maddy, not trying to offend.

    From how I see it, the bill of rights is violated by the government whenever they damn well please and no one seems to care. (NOW I mean to offend) You wanna sit in a rocking chair and peacefully protest something that is of little concern in the grand scheme of things?

    Whine about wallstreet as opposed to the government screwing over our entire country at it`s most basic principals, if you really want change, stand the **** up and do something, pull the ****ing trigger!

    I told you before and I`ll tell you again, peaceful protests don`t mean crap in this day and age.

    Unless the 99% learn that 99% is more than 1% and thus can overrun the 1% with a huge force, they deserve to get peppersprayed, beaten and arrested.

    When the police arrested that person, they should have taken a cop, tie him up and make him realise hoe fragile he is and how easy it is to get hurt protecting the 1%.
    When the cops would go in with force pick out another one and make him realise the same thing.

    Furthermore refuse them service, don`t let them or their families buy in your store and deny them jobs. Make them outcasts.
    Soon they will either resign the policeforce and join the 99% or fail defending the 1%.

    The 99% have to realize that it`s not only about sharing the wealth, it`s also about sacrificing yourself so the one behind you can take out the one causing the harm.
    Sadly the 99% are only in it for the Youtube moments of fame and feeling good about themselves (indeed, themselves and not for others)
    These protester are as useless

    I see a lot of people talking about sharing the wealth regarding these protests. Johan I use yours since it is most recent in my mind (please don`t get me wrong though I like a lot of what you said there) This protest should not be about spreading the wealth, it should be about allowing man and woman to pursue their own wealth. And the government should not allow another entity to defraud that woman or man. The government has allowed the banks to defraud the American people. Once people protesting realize the government shares in the tragedy and that our congress is bought by those banks, only then can we truly make a difference. Until then pacified Americans will let problems like this video happen, where the millions let the 1% (government and banks) pick them off one by one.

    Another misleading OWS arrest.

    Showing only what happens when the police arrive, but not showing us what he did to actually justify the arrest.

    As far as following police orders, he simply asked them if he was going to be arrested if he walked that way... they never really said no.

    This is why OWS is such a failure.

    madest-"where questioning authority would get you imprisoned."

    Auburnjunky has not demonstrated that he lacks the will to question authority. He has demonstrated the ability to question any video that fails to present the full story, or context, of a situation. This is called `logical reasoning`.

    Madest HAS demonstrated his inability to question ANY out-of context, biased video as long as it can missleadingly put authority in a bad light. This is called `illogical bias`.

    madest-"There`s nothing out of context in this video"

    There`s plenty out of context.

    The one thing that is NOT out of context is the protestor knows before hand that he is not supposed to walk in that direction. He knows he will get arrested if he does so. The cops says, `do what you gotta do`. At no time did the cop order him to go. At no time did the cop suggest he would not be arrested.

    In the end, the protestor`s asinine idea of his `rights` is what got him arrested. And, of course, he WANTED to get arrested. It makes for much better video that will get idiots to think he was wrongfully arrested.

    Of course, YOU think he was wrongfully arrested, so I guess it worked.

    you people who are saying "look the cops just doing his job" are complete morons. he is not. the initial idea of a cops job is to serve and protect. who? it`s supposed to be the public, the general population. in this scenario, and all over the country, the only person the police serve or protect are the kykes who are all running poo. the same kykes for whom these protests all over the country are very uncomfortable for because they`re spreading awareness. they`re causing morons like you to slowly pull their heads out their butts, and see what`s actually happening instead of just hearing the lies those same kykes tell you on the news. police officers anymore, to me, on a moral and social level, aren`t members of society anymore. hell, they don`t even qualify as human. they`re drones. drones who`ve been bought off to do the world elite`s bidding. they sold their souls, and they will get what`s coming to them.

    THE REVOLUTION IS COMING!!!
    START STOCKING UP IN AMMO!!
