Occupy Wall Street: Evicted

Occupy Wall Street: Evicted

Today the Occupy Wall Street protesters were evicted from Zuccotti Park.


Regardless of one's political or economic persuasions, this act will be seen as having been cavalier and performed without thoughtful examination. What was a peaceful protest against the banking community and our government, who has donated and continues to donate tax payer money to the banks, will now morph into a dangerous movement of civil disobedience. The overwhelming majority of Americans will polarize from a disinterest in Occupy Wall Street to taking an aggressive stance for or against!

History is the best teacher in such moments - a monumental mistake has been made at the risk of the people of New York and across the nation. When peaceful protest is denied it always evolves into less peaceful protest.
