Police Brutality -Wall Street

Why is the main stream media covering this topic now, when it has been ongoing for years?
In the US, Canada, Britain and all the other alleged free-dumb loving countries.
The countries where the dumb believe they are "free" and the dumb believe these same nations are making others free?
So why now?
Two thoughts off the top of my head-
1-The police brutality has become so commonplace and so widespread it can't credibly be ignored any longer

2-
More worrisome is, this coverage will cause some people to engage in acts of violence.
Thereby justifying an even more brutal crackdown by the paid for goons of the elite, the powerful, the ultra rich, the multinationals, the bankster class.

3-
This thought comes to us all via an excellent comment from Texanna83.
Quoting Texanna-
" By channeling the anger toward policemen, people will start calling the police the problem, the police will hate the protesters for hating them, and eyes turn away from the financial terrorism that is causing all this."
Well put!

Don't do it
.
The power is in the numbers.
The power is in the numbers.

The entrenched leeches know this, hence the goon squads.
The people should know this by now as well.
To paraphrase a Door's song

You don't need the guns, when you got the numbers

  1. This may be off, but I also think this may be a way of redirecting the anger from the real issues that brought the protesters together. By channeling the anger toward policemen, people will start calling the police the problem, the police will hate the protesters for hating them, and eyes turn away from the financial terrorism that is causing all this.
    I thought this when "Anonymous" (which I think is a CIA creation) posted the info on the policeman who did this. Ahhh, I thought, they are giving Americans someone to hate-so they won't look at the real issue. Americans are easily confused you know.
    Love your blog BTW.

  2. Thanks Texanna83

    Texanna, that is brilliant!

    I am going to put it into the post, thank-you!

  3. oh and Texanna

    " "Anonymous" (which I think is a CIA creation)"

    In my book 'Anonymous', who I am sure have been covered here somewhere) is a total spook outfit (CIA, Mossad, MI6 etc.,)

  4. Penny, over at AP's a few posts ago with ~50 comments I put up some links I found to 'Anonymous'. Spooky and more.

    Well,well, they are already shifting into overdrive. Pretty soon no one will be thinking about WHY the protesters were there in the first place.

  6. That is an excellent point Penny and Texanna.

    This reminds me of the mainstream coverage of the BART tunnel protest in San Francisco a few weeks ago. What was completely absent from the television coverage was the reason for the protest, the fatal shooting of a handcuffed man lying face down on the ground. The coverage instead revolved around the latest fascist tactic -the shutdown of cellular service in the tunnel, and the camera featured some geek protester with a cardboard phone clownishly holding it up to his ear and repeatedly saying "can you hear me now?" -as if to completely deride the fact that a helpless, innocent man had been killed there.

    We're being led around by the nose.

  7. Hi Penny,
    My take is different then you cats.
    I guess not having a tee vee and lookin from that perspective askews my view.
    For me, the huge video cam presence is the real story. Never before has thispolice brutality story been witnessed with such clarity. This is revolutionary!
    People need to have info REPEATEDLY pounded into their thick skulls That's how the Viet Nam war was presented to the people and the people turned against it. Evry night the teee veee showd the atrocities of war and people FINALLY got it.
    Likewise police brutality must now be REPEATEDLY pounded into the peoples awareness. If the MSM doesn't do this then the peoples(video cam) media must do it!
    No?

  8. Film footage of police brutality has been documented for years. Look at any archival footage of the Vietnam War protests, the civil rights protests, and the Seattle protests- they haven't tried to hide anything. So I agree with Penny - this is nothing new.
    Neither here or there, but I don't have TV either. I just know that when this clip was posted on friends' FBs, I thought as well, "why now does the mainstream media care?" And when less than 24 hours after mainstream media aired it -conveniently "Anonymous" had ALL this guy's information (my my they're good, all they had was a blurry video to work with!) I figured this was to redirect the conversation, since it was getting harder and harder to ignore the protests.

  9. An amazing video to watch. Some of these police officers are clearly fascists.

    Only appropriate:

    "They got the guns, but we got the numbers. We're goin' win, yeah we're takin' over, come on!"

  10. Nive vids, but the giveaway on intent is the messenger: MSNBC.

    NBC is baaaaaad news folks. They are the bad guys, full stop.

    So what, pray tell, are they protesting against, fighting the good fight against police brutality and oppression of protest?

    Good question.


    Penny, as soon as you tell me what they were protesting, I will let you know. :)

    Oh wait, I remember - it was bankers.

    And now we have seen what happens to a bunch of hippies who dare stand up against bankers with all their crazy trying that free-speech crap.

    Is it a wedge to put people against police? Perhaps, a bit. But I'll wager this: the time spent on the actual pain and suffering, the brutality of things, is to show the true force you will meet if you actively resist.

    I've seen deterrence videos, and this is it.

    Like any advertising, to get the message (after watching the whole thing) just close your eyes, and picture the first thing you can remember from what you just watched.

    Got it? Good.

    Now . . . how do you feel?

  11. Tex, I recall back in the 1970's Abbie Hoffman Talking about the 1968 Democratic convention held in Chicago.
    Abbie said that the reaction to the protesters by the average Amerikan was one of revulsion for the protesters not revulsion for the police brutality(the tee veee prolly censored the police brutality). In fact Hoffman stated that the average, working class Amerikan, who normally voted Democrat, voted against the Democrats because they could not run the convention let alone the nation. Huge numbers of working class Amerikans who normally voted for Democrats switched partys to vote for Nixon because they figured Nixon would run the country better then the Democrats.

  12. I just got back from the Occupy San Diego General Assembly meeting, which was held downtown in a small park. The first meeting was yesterday, and today's focused on where the occupation/protest was going to take place. Everyone was sitting around, discussing the pros and cons of each potential location civilly. Many people had done pretty extensive investigating, considering things like public bathrooms, visibility, accessibility (camping and staying overnight), feasibility, location to the financial buildings, ect. at various locations in and around downtown. There's a pretty decent amount of people seriously getting into this. It has potential.

    I'm more concerned with our demands at this point. Here's what I say:

    1. Arrest the criminal bankers, end the Fed, and erase the debt.

    2. Declare publicly to the world that 9/11 was an inside job done by criminal Zionists that have complete control of the US government, media, and private sector along with the state of Israel. End all wars immediately and end all foreign aid to every single country, especially Israel.

    3. Prosecute every single criminal involved at the highest levels first and foremost for the financial fraud and war crimes against humanity. That's basically everyone folks.

    I don't know if we're ever going to get exactly that, but this may be a start. I'll be participating. :)

    There's been talk here of holding workshops, discussions, teach-ins, ect., which I think would be great. I guess we'll see how things shake out...it's getting wild in New York. Rivero said that the only cops blatantly assaulting people were the "white shirts", detectives and captains apparently. It seems it's a bit worse than that, but I'm not there, so I don't know...

  13. Hey freethinker!
    Thanks for bringing that to my attention


    You and others may recall back in August "anonymous" hacked the syrian government sites

    http://pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.com/2011/08/turkey-international-support-to-invade.html

    The hacking group known as Anonymous show their western backed hand...
    Anonymous strikes again, takes over Syrian Defense Ministry Web site
    With a message in both Arabic and English...tailor made for the Western audience!

    That fact that they are a took is plainly obvious.

  14. Texanna83:

    thanks for the link. I won't disagree that the goon should lose his job, but he won't.

    It is up to us all to keep the facts at the forefront- why the protestors are there, at Wall St. Because the banksters brought down the economy of the globe.

    "What was completely absent from the television coverage was the reason for the protest, the fatal shooting of a handcuffed man lying face down on the ground."

    I was completely unaware of this fact.
    Admittedly I hadn't followed that specific news.
    You are correct in that most of the reporting that I did see
    "revolved around the latest fascist tactic -the shutdown of cellular service in the tunnel"
    which directs the anger towards the cell company.

  16. Hey Peter!

    "My take is different then you cats."

    I like different takes!


    For me, the huge video cam presence is the real story. Never before has this police brutality story been witnessed with such clarity. This is revolutionary!

    I will agree with that aspect. The video camera, cell phone presence has certainly changed the playing field for the police. It is the stuff of revolution because it has the ability to bring the point home in a way that was previously impossible.

    "People need to have info REPEATEDLY pounded into their thick skulls"

    Sad but true. Particularly since people have the attention span = to a- blink. And it's forgotten.
    Made worse by sound bites, tv, commercials, video games etc., but...story for another day

    "That's how the Viet Nam war was presented to the people and the people turned against it. Evry night the teee veee showd the atrocities of war and people FINALLY got it"

    As a kid I can recall that, every night they would say how many died in Vietnam, I mean it was an almost daily occurence.

    But, there is nothing like that now. The news doesn't even touch on it. Everything that is presented is carefully crafted.

    "Likewise police brutality must now be REPEATEDLY pounded into the peoples awareness. If the MSM doesn't do this then the peoples(video cam) media must do it!
    No?"

    Yes, the masses need to be made aware this is a problem.

    Still it has been known for a long time now,online, that this is a big problem.
    And it is only because of regular people with cameras that this is known at all.
    Even by the main stream media.

    In fact as the MSNBC talking head points out, this has been known by the black community forever.
    Has the white community turned a blind eye to it because it was largely being perpetuated against the black community?

    Probably.

    Which still brings us back round to why the supportive of protestors msm coverage, why now?

    If you watch the video, the commentator reinforces the notion of police brutality, but, fails to reinforce the reason the protestors are there at all.
    He does not mention Wall St, or the NYPD.
    Why?

  18. John Friend!

    Watching stuff like that always causes me to tear up, I see people's children...

    It is tough to accept that some people would harm and abuse other people's children.

    Children in general.

    For a pay cheque? For any reason?

    Children always represent the future.. what is indicated to us all by abusing/torturing/disdaining the future?

    MSNBC = General Electric = Military Industrial Complex!

    Let's see what they are involved in, in the way of domestic surveillance etc.,

    A quick search brings up this

    http://www.genewscenter.com/Press-Releases/GE-to-Open-Information-Security-Technology-Center-in-Virginia-2ff0.aspx

    GE to Open Information Security Technology Center in Virginia


    Company to add 200 IT experts to focus on future of cyber security,

    network design and application development

    FAIRFIELD, Conn.--13 April 2011-- General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) today announced that it will open an Information Security Technology Center in Glen Allen, Virginia – north of Richmond. The new Center will house high-tech teams specializing in cyber security, as well as network design, architecture, data management, and application development. Employment for the Center is expected to grow to roughly 200 employees over the next few years.

    In Virginia, no less. Spook Central.

    Could the police brutality, be used as to justify more cameras and surveillance on every street corner to protect the people from the police?

    It's possible?

    I recall the young girl screaming in pain. (Pepper spray)
    I can see what you mean, about the deterrent effect. The thought of having one's eyeballs burning so badly could make someone decide against participating in protests.

  21. Exactly correct Pen. I also go the girl who was absolutely wailing, TERRIFIED, made powerless and put into pain by a random cop who wandered by and sprayed her. A cop who was never named, questioned or investigated afterward either, I might add.

    That is a psy-ops. It is meant to inject a deep, inner message into your psyche. That way, when the chips are down, and you have to make a decision . . . you will know what to do.

    It's fear. It's powerlessness. It's the knowledge that you can do nothing to stop their fascist brutality.

    So, before you ever dare put yourself in that position to share that wailing woman's loss . . . you rationalise. Your brain will spin a thousand beautiful tales and reasons as to why you should do this or that to avoid that horrible pain.

    Our brains - for normal, healthy humans - are wired to avoid pain, to fear it. And mostly, it's a very good thing. But these guys . . . they use it as their primary manipulative tool.

    And that is why, in all of these broadcasts, they will repeat those key scenes, replay it in slow motion, etc. Not to make sure you catch the bad guys, mind you, or punish the wrongdoers - no, that never happens.

    No, they do it to make sure your brain is imprinted with that visceral scene of pain, anguish and powerlessness.

    Empowerment is the LAST thing these fuckers want.
