How disappointing to read about the arrests of over 180 protesters and journalists on the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (OWS)! Are we to believe that all of the arrested people violated the law? Or are the 180+ arrests meant to encourage us 99%ers to look at the protesters as hooligans and riff raff?
If you ask me, the great majority of the OWS protesters are everyday heroes, risking arrest and assault in order to speak truth to power - without vandalism or violence.
99%ers, let's face it: We are all riff raff now.
