"in lybia they are heros for changing an opressive government, in america we get shot at"

They get shot at there too, with real bullets. By the hundreds and it is not pretty. Been there lately?

"Criminal vagrants deserve to be shot,huh? Big crime.What happened to the right to peacefully assemble? @spluryburbl-Your an ex-Marine,Vet AND Anti-American?WTF?"

This is what I expected when I made my post. That a moron would read it, but only take from it what they wish to take from it. Who exactly said they were being peaceful? Where is their agreement with the city to "peacefully assemble"? (There are rules to that you know) When did I say criminal vagrants "deserve to be shot"?

What I did say was that they were likely being violent and criminal and he was in the line of indirect fire. How you got anything different is beyond me, but alas... expected.

Furthermore; I am not an ex-Marine... I am a current Marine of 15+ years, a Veteran of 3 wars/conflicts (whatever) and I defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. WTF do you do?

@robosnitz - Yep, because that sure looked peacful to me -.-

Theres a mighty big list of things they were not supposed to be doing, most of them were hardly "peaceful" on a side note, a majority of all the OWS related videos on this site hardly resemble anything peacful in nature, most depect yelling, arguing, disorder of various kinds, fighting etc...

Most videos like this are from whiners trying to create sympathy for the cause "look how they`re treating us" "the police are reacting violently and we aren`t doing anything wrong". Sorry, I call BS, You don`t want to be gased? Shot at? maced? Here`s a thought when a bunch of men dressed in riot gear and are also armed start to walk you`re way...MOVE, you can be defiant all you want, but don`t expect me to feel bad for you when you`re plan back fires.

BWahaha!! As a Marine and a vet myself I can only laugh at the melodramatic BS in this vid. These people act like they are victims in a warzone. Nevermind its a fact that they created the warzone and they victimized themselves.

LOL, "WHAT`S YOUR NAME!!"
"HE WAS SHOT!!"

Yeah, by a rubber bullet, that probably was indirect supression fire and his dumb head got in the way. Dummy, that`s what happens when you become a criminal vagrant and start riots.

@skullgrin - Oh please do, and once ONE person fires a shot against the police I won`t ever have to see another OWS video because they would all be shut down.

@ Draculya

If it were a real revolution, I`m pretty sure they would break out the army to put an end to it.

Lame, for starters, who started it, I`m betting it wasn`t the cops. If they are shooting at you, GTFO of the way.

He looked dazed, which is what one would suspect, but I doubt he even has a mild concussion. Now if he were out cold, than he`d may have one, but otherwise, not much different than a punch to the face.

I enjoy watching video of `OWS`. I see it getting worse as the weeks go by and I question myself and peers, do you think it`s going going to escalate any further. We all reply with, "No, they are going to just to gradually stop protesting and go home."

If this keep going the way it is, I am expecting to see full blown gun wars by Christmas. What a treat. SMH

Good lord, could we please get some accounting of these situations that isn`t slanted to the one side so far...Bias isn`t good journalism, it`s a show of stupidity...in both the reporter and those that tout it as gospel.

@Thetas Then why would you use it to control a crowd? What the hell would `mildly irritating` people do to get a situation under control? Of course tear gas is bad. It would have to be for it to work, dumbass.

Tear gas isn`t that bad. In a small room where it`s been cooking for awhile and collecting, and recruits are made to inhale it for extended periods of time, it burns the skin and eyes and causes asphyxiation, but it`s tolerable. Out in the streets in the open air from a fresh canister is not going to do much at all- Mild irritation perhaps, but nothing serious.

This guy was actually kicked out of the marines for drug use and other misconduct. It only takes a little bit of reading about him to find out that he wasn`t exactly an american hero.

Being a Marine gives him no special privelages. If he is a Marine and acting a fool like many of the protesters in this video, than the title does not protect him. He deserves the repercussions of his actions like every other protester who takes things out of line.

By out of line, I do mean those deficating on police cars, destroying private property, etc... Not just the people sitting there stating their case.

@Brassbull: Tear gas isn`t that bad? You obviously don`t remember the video of tear gas army training posted here a week or so ago.

Just a couple weeks ago this same guy was "Hit in the head with a flash grenade" Posting partial videos and incorrect headings is never good.

Hope they have that medic on there side, with roads blocked off and people "not moveing" for the police, it`ll be fun getting aid there quickly.

Also a tip, when police break out the rubber bullets, tear gas and flash grenades, it`s time to MOVE, standing there yelling, and throwing it back at them is NOT going to benefit you in a fun or positive way.

Crakr shooting rubber bullets at head level is not only trained against but can and will kill someone. Whether or not they were using proper methods (rubber bullets) using them incorrectly is dangerous and unacceptable. In fairness he could have been kneeling or all sorts of other things could happen that would make this an accident. Also, just because some were rioting or vandalizing doesn`t mean they all are so using rubber bullets on subject A who is stationary and compliant just because subject B is throwing rocks ten feet behind him is still a no go. It`s so funny to see you all take it from black (totally innocent man wrongly shot as if intentional hell must be paid) to crakrs white he was a violent fire setting, graffiti artist. You`re the same retarded lot that blindly argue dem and gop poo as if there have never been, aren`t, and never will be any shades of grey.

Again, This became a riot because of the protesters vandalism, graffiti, and setting fires, thus they are `Rioters` and were treated as such by the police.

@M_Archer - Tear gas isn`t that bad. One or two minutes of walking around in some fresh air and you`re fine. A lot of cops are ex-military and have had to deal with tear gas before as part of their basic training. Hell, in my division a bunch of us would have gone a second time if they`d have let us.

When are people going to post videos with steady cameras instead of obnoxious jumping video, why bother if its not viewable.


do you want to take a $1,500 camera with a tripod/wheele`d base into a protest where tear gas and rubber bullets are being used with possible riots happening and the high risk of people being there who only want to benifit themselves by stealing things?
or would you rather show up support your cause and when poo goes down reach into your pocket and get your phone out to record the havock?

Is this Wall Street?

Finally, it`s good to see that the cops are cleaning the dirt off the street. If I were the chief of police, I would`ve sent in the fire department for riot control; they`re a little less violent, and they would give the protesters the shower that they desperately need.

Did you guys see the protester at the very beginning of the video throw the tear gas canister into the crowd of cops? Now, they`re resorting to assaulting police officers--it`s disgusting.

It`s painful to watch a bunch of ordinary people full of adrenaline in a dangerous situation all trying to take a commanding role. There were so many people screaming "WHAT`S YOUR NAME?" in his face the poor guy didn`t even get a chance to reply.

It wasn`t a rubber bullet, it was a fired teargas canister that nailed him in the forehead (allegedly aimed). The real clear BS part is that there`s video of another cop throwing a flashbang grenade rught on top of him while a handful of people were trying to pick him off the ground.

PS: Welcome to last week...
