Astra-- If you recall the Civil Rights movement was not ALL peaceful. --I believe the authorities are afraid of the OCCUPY who they thought would go away but the following are some of their complaints. .
(2) That system caused The Crash, and no one has been punished for it.
(3) Wall Street perpetuates that system through iron control of our political process.

We have stressed out people in this country, people with no job, half the country make low wages, or are afraid of losing their job. Crime is up, house invasions, mugging. I have never seen headlines like this all in ONE DAY and especially women who make up much of the working forces and so many are single mothers.
This is awful when we have fund-raising events for $50,000 a plate and for one party all they care about is getting rid of the black president, extending tax breaks for the wealthiest and cheating the rest of us.
