the above link is daytime footage for the protest known as Occupy: Congress

Kabbage - 2012-09-26

Worth a watch.

Old_Zircon - 2012-09-26

The Youtube description says it's called "Surround Congress."

Binro the Heretic - 2012-09-26

Spanish cops ride around in "A-Team" vans?

TheOtherCapnS - 2012-09-26

I know someone will call me 3dgy or whatever it is the bootlickers are saying nowadays, but seeing that one cop that was grabbing someone get kicked around by like three different people made my fucking day.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2012-09-26

That was some fucking ju jitsu right there. Fuck you, pig. I'll buy that guy a beer any day.

Old People - 2012-09-26

Yeah wouldn't it be cool if all the pigs just went away and people could just take care of their own business.

PS I lick boots

TheOtherCapnS - 2012-09-26

No, it would be cool if the country I live in (I realize this takes place in another country) didn't imprison more people than any other country in the world because of fundamentally racist laws.

It would also be cool if public resentment of people enforcing those laws didn't force them into an adversarial mindset against the public.

It would further still be cool if that adversarial mindset being so firmly part of the zeitgeist didn't draw so many racist, sadistic assholes to the job.

And lastly, it would be cool if those sadistic assholes didn't get to gleefully show their true colors to the world every time there is a public protest.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2012-09-26

What he said. I'll add that America's descent into a police state where the police have utter free reign to do whatever the hell they want scares me more than anything, and especially with the brutality at Occupy.

And now that Obama has taken a royal shit on the 1st Amendment and directly fucked up the right to assembly by saying you need TO REGISTER WITH THE STATE FOR THE LICENSE TO PROTEST I hope to GOD people FUCK THE POLICE AND THEIR SHIT UP. It's all they deserve going after innocent civilians like it was some 3rd world desert shithole.

Old People - 2012-09-26

I agree with everything that CapnS just said (barring his original comment), but ROUS seems to have forgotten just who the fuck solves murders, rescues abducted children, and keeps his bitch ass from getting killed by the Poors.
I'm a veteran and a volunteer firefighter, and a third of the guys in my department are cops (who are spending their days on patrol and their nights VOLUNTEERING to save peoples' lives and property) and another third are fellow vets. We live in a Blue state and most of us are Democrats. It's funny how you don't see too many ROUSs among the volunteer firefighters and EMTs. ...on that note, I've always felt that if liberals hadn't completely abandoned the military after Vietnam, we might have a much saner Army and foreign policy...
Rant ends.

Gmork - 2012-09-26

Its such a shame you never got caught in a backdraft, Old People.

CJH - 2012-09-26

solves (white) murders, rescues abducted (white) children, keeps (rich people) from getting killed by the Poors.

FABIO - 2012-09-26

Liberals abandon the military, oh man.

Jeriko-1 - 2012-09-26

Oh no, it's the Poors! Run for your lives!

Old_Zircon - 2012-09-26

You've needed to register for a license to protest for at least as long as I've been old enough to know what protest even means (early 90s).

Old_Zircon - 2012-09-26

Also, can we talk about how police forces have been cutting corners by reworking their operating procedures to more closely resemble a military operation, so that they can hire recently returned veterans and put them on the force with minimal expenditure on training? And how that has seriously worsened the situation described by CapnS, since now there are a lot of green recruits whose background and training pretty much guarantees they'll approach citizens as "the enemy?"

Because that's a pretty huge problem right now.

FABIO - 2012-09-26

Way to ABANDON the military, comrade!

Bort - 2012-09-26


RoUS, can you clarify? Is this about HR 347, or what?

memedumpster - 2012-09-26

You one starred a video about SPAIN because you can't stand your fellow Americans having different opinions than you about American cops.

This is why the terrorists hate us, and also, thank CHRIST you're not a cop, lest you get mad at Paraguay and shoot one of us "Poors" for being uppity.


Old People - 2012-09-26

Dammit, people, I am not the new Cena_mark.

Also, Gmork, fuck you and your ugliness.

Aelric - 2012-09-26

You are all losing your objectivity. The average cop ISN'T a jackbooted thug. Do you blame every soldier in the army for the invasion of Iraq? Are there shitheel cops? Yeah, absolutely. Are the riot officers shitheels? Indubitably, they are the biggest shitheels as they are the volunteers that LIKE cracking heads. Are all cops evil? Fucking come on, you know it's not true.

Gmork - 2012-09-26


Rodents of Unusual Size - 2012-09-26

Allow me to clarify. They should fuck up cops who willfully beat up innocent people just as a power play. They've been doing that the past few years and it is a very escalating situation when you have peaceful protesters being beaten in the streets for having an opinion.

The cops are breaking the law and they continue to get away with it and I think the crowds should take justice upon themselves to stop the police from pulling this shit anymore. The justice system is utterly failing them and there is no legal recourse thanks to Obama.

To clarify on the new law...protesting without permission is now a felony. A felony. In America. To be specific, if a Secret Service member is anywhere near a protest, under the new law hundreds of people within his or her vicinity can be arrested. So all they need to do is have an SS guy walk down to Occupy and shut the entire thing down.

Also, it is now illegal to "interfere with a campaign stop". Remember Marcus Bachmann getting a glitter bomb? That is now going to land you in prison. For possibly years. If you show up at the hotel a candidate is staying with signs you can now be arrested.

This is against democracy. I don't have to be a cop to judge the ones that are attempting murder on the populace.

Bort - 2012-09-26

RoUS, that's what I thought you were going to say. I have good news for you: people don't know shit about HR 347, and have been panicking because they love to panic. But the people you're getting your information from are about as informed as the "death panels" crowd, just on the other side.

Here's what the ACLU has to say about HR 347 -- can we trust the ACLU to maintain perspective where it is appropriate?

http://www.aclu.org/blog/free-speech/how-big-deal-hr-347-crimi nalizing-protest-bill

Even the ACLU regards it with a yawn. The law that has been in effect since the 70s has been that the Secret Service can cordon off an area, mark it very visibly, and if you deliberately go into areas you know are restricted with the further awareness that doing so is a crime, you can be prosecuted. HR 347 changes this only by removing the stipulation that you need the further awareness that doing so is a crime. That's it. That's what people are pooping their Pampers over.

As I see it, what's important is that this doesn't really make it any easier for the Secret Service to abuse their powers. The responsibility still rests with them to mark off areas. Not knowing that an area was cordoned off is still reason to dismiss the charges. All this does is close a loophole where a person could get off because they were knowingly going into restricted areas, but they claimed they didn't know it was actually against the law.

You know who voted for the passage of HR 347? Dennis Kucinich, Barney Frank, Al Franken, Bernie Sanders, and Sherrod Brown, among others. You think maybe they know something that the unwashed masses of FireDogLake don't?

A lot of voices on the left have been pants-shittingly stupid over this, and have completely misinformed everyone else. Save your energy for getting on Obama's case for trying to preserve the "indefinite detainment" section of the 2012 NDAA, the one bad page in an otherwise vital defense appropriations bill (which is why it passed with overwhelming numbers). AFTER he's re-elected, I mean.

Old People - 2012-09-27

ah, fuck, I pretty much am Satan, god bless 'im. i hate seeing people hurting each other, over anything, but at the same time i recognize that there are times when it's important to stand up and bop someone on the head. when i hear that a government building, in a democracy, is surrounded by a surging mob waving blunt objects, my instinct is to stand with that rather thin (when you look at it) blue line and say, fuck off, let's let our elected reps handle it. i have a faith in the boring-old-liberal-white-person system that has conveyed us through the last century or so, that has fed and nurtured to adulthood an unprecedented proportion of us. as a system it basically blows but, like the man said, it's better than anything else that any of yall fucktards have pulled off since we left the days of hunter-gathering.
i fought in dumbass iraq for this.
i waste my evenings at the boringass firehouse for this.
i vote for the darker-skinned guy in a suit for this.
so yeah, i'm the Man.
and PS, if more of you liberal pussies would join the military, 1) you'd see it's actually kind of fun to play soldier and 2) we wouldn't have 2LT Calley in charge when we're downrange and 3) people who actually believe in the Rapture wouldn't have a substantial degree of control over our nuclear arsenal.

Gmork - 2012-09-27

Blah blah blah military blah blah blah cockslobber blah blah blah liberals. Get over yourself. It was your dumb decision to join the military and it obviously brainwashed you like i've seen it brainwash many people i've known and turned them into rabid assholes.

Go pretend you're righteous somewhere else, your bullshit is completely transparent. Reading your garbage brings the bile up in the back of my throat. You have no clue how dumb you are for not learning different lessons from your dumb life experiences.

Aelric - 2012-09-27

I'll stand by previous statements: Both sides are acting like morons.

Gmork: so all soldiers and cops are brainwashed assholes, acting only on what you disagree with, especially considering the specifics of the austerity policies that spawned this particular protest in Spain? If so, you share nothing with the protesters, you are just a black mask that loves fucking stupid shit up, but on the internet instead of the ACTUAL black masks in protest. Good luck with that.

Old People: You are using asshole terminology to lose an argument on the internet. The majority of folks DO respect volunteer firefighters, but when confronted with police knocking heads, they are gonna say shit against it, which they SHOULD. To call those that disagree the 'poors' is stupid and really just calling your own people stupid, regardless of context.

Everyone: say what you want to say, but Jesus, it's not like there isn't a proper amount of time before hitting the Google bar and the enter button on your comment. I think this video is fucked as well, but spouting shit without research is fox news bush league shit, on both sides. I thought PoETV was better than that. I think you are both reactionary morons. Step back, breath, THEN decide what you want to say. Idiots, both.

Aelric - 2012-09-27

The black mask aspect: I'm been arrested because asshole black masks decided to throw rocks at cops instead of actually lend legitimacy to a peaceful protest before. I'll always defend the right to organize and protest, but I'll never defend the right to do stupid violent shit because you are angry. It ruins the legitimacy of whatever you are involved in.

baleen - 2012-09-28

Yeah, it's a cops job to prevent crime, not adopt moral stances on crimes based on political motives.

The tragedy is that normal people have to "pay their debts" by becoming worthless and starving because a few governments and banks decided to play roulette. There's no bad guy on those streets and it's stupid to think that there is.

The tragedy is that this is what has happened when the lenders impose punishments on the borrowers. That's the way it has been for thousands of years. Normally, a government is either toppled when this happens or they do what so many other countries do, they dissolve the debt and rebuild their country.

Corrupt banks are leveraged at 50:1, 75:1... How much do you think those people on the street are leveraged? A student in America might be leveraged .15:1 on their income, yet this humble transgression is probably ruining their lives. How much of that is their fault? Why would we trade total destruction and desitition for the faulty notion of "fiscal austerity" and "what is right?" It's complete bullshit. America itself has absolved itself of debts to other nations, and we've forgiven debts of our enemies. It's a game. Fuck you, global capitalism.

they'reforyou - 2012-09-26

Meanwhile, we have Fox News just begging for this to actually happen over here, but all they can come up with is "well, there were some rape tents maybe" and then Reilly pats himself on the back for declaring the upstanding Christian capitalists have won.

they'reforyou - 2012-09-26

O'Reilly, rather. Oh, Oh, Oh, O'Reilly, auto parts!

Nikon - 2012-09-26

Someday we'll have a big fight between the people who've got everything and the people who have nothing.

garcet71283 - 2012-09-26

We had that already.
Problem is, the people who had nothing won and then had everything meaning someone else had nothing.
Circle of life man...

dairyqueenlatifah - 2012-09-26

Too bad our cops have guns. I'll never get to flying kick a member of the LAPD like that and live to tell about it.


SteamPoweredKleenex - 2012-09-26

You just have to be part of a larger protest to survive.

You'd better hurry, though. I figure it's only a matter of time before riot cops are issued live ammo.

FABIO - 2012-09-26

"Non-lethal" crowd control scares me more than live ammo. At least there's some restraint and accountability with the latter.

STABFACE - 2012-09-26

Why don't you ask Amadou Diallo about the restraint cops show with deadly weapons?

FABIO - 2012-09-26

More than the restraint they show with tasers, bean bag bullets, and god knows what sonic/pain ray thing they deploy next.

Old_Zircon - 2012-09-26

Are you sure this isn't Pittsburgh after a game*?

Stars for the ninja skills of hoodie guy at 1:15 and especially Skidz guy at 1:22

*any game.

FABIO - 2012-09-26

These people should all be out getting jobs!

What's the deal with the hoodies at 1:36 helping the cops drag the guy to the van? Plants?

wackyakmed - 2012-09-27

Looks like two of them. The black bloc guy to the left wearing white shoes was helping as well. That's why I can't get behind bb - never know who is behind the mask and hood.

urbanelf - 2012-09-26

Guards! Exterminate them....

catpenis27 - 2012-09-27

LAPD would have opened fire long before it got this interesting.
