Ironically, Ball said she was arrested while holding a sign reading, "Protect NYPD pensions."

"Maybe if the cops got paid more they wouldn't want to beat the s--- out of people," Ball said.

She said one second she was protesting and the next she was face-down on the ground getting handcuffed.

"There was a hand on my back and my face got pushed to the ground," Ball said. "His arm is around my throat, I was panicking. I was screaming my name so that someone knows I'm getting arrested."

Well, it is easier that arresting real criminals.
Like the kind folks who brought down the economy and extorted the world for umpteen trillion dollars.

pathetic:

80 Arrested as Financial District Protest Moves North - NYTimes.com

for years Cops don't do shit about city homeless, and now they create rules to effectively kick out "squatters"

"New rules posted in the park on Saturday seemed aimed at the protesters. In addition to bicycle riding, camping gear and sleeping bags were now also banned."

I never saw that many cops at a teabagger rally.
But then teabaggers lack the presence of mind to rally against those that actually control them.
Perhaps they need to listen to bit of George Carlin.
Instead of Rush Limbaugh.

Banning umbrellas in the rain was the worst of it.

I am the homosexual that wants to have children and family. I am white, black, yellow, red and mix, most of all mix I am the one who goes, stays and the one that wants to return. I am who tries to keep up, the child left behind who goes hungry to bed. I am who sings, dreams, and is not allowed to fly. I am who cries for a murdered family, for dreams that were cut short, for a soul corrupted by media. I am protesting for a change, fighting to make a dream become an objective. I am who is dying for a future, to make it today. I am a John Lennon and Martin Luther King, I'm Mother Teresa, Che Guevara, Gandhi and Bolivar, I am the present who sees a past ruled by hatred and lust for power, I am a history of false glorys and supremacy where I was who watched from below, but also who sees a future of hopes, of singing and creating minds, where we can all look up to a world where I, the 99% will be happy.

They know that a better future is possible.
They know we are not going in that direction.
They know about the technology, some of them worked on it.
They know who is controlling it.
They want it to change.

Some laughed at me when I stated that we stand on the threshold of a cure for the common cold.
That ain't all it will cure.
I asked what big pharma might halt it's development.
No one answered.
It remains to be seen, as it's new.
