Minnesota state troopers caught drugging Occupy protesters

Caveat:  I don’t buy 99.9% of conspiracy theories, but this is very damning. This video documents—rather effectively—how the Minnesota State Troopers are picking up protesters from the Occupy movement, getting them high, sometimes bribing them, and returning them back to the base camp.

Just because the Occupy protests have mainly died down doesn’t mean they’ve gone away. They’ve just gone inside and started working on the real problems. Meet the Alternative Banking Group.

NYPD “Disorder control unit” guidelines, taken from a OWS arrestee inside a van
An OWS protestor who was arrested by the NYPD managed to snag the above xeroxed copy of the NYPD “Disorder control unit” guidelines, full of things like “Make sure to kick pregnant women in the stomach”. Lol, just kidding. The guidelines are actually pretty reasonable and responsible.

Specifically, all the laptops had been smashed to bits with bats.

We petition the Obama administration to make a statement condemning the use of violence against peaceful protestors in the United States.

Hi IHEARTCHAOS.  I love this site.  I thought maybe you guys could help spread the word with this.  No matter what side of the fence you are on concerning the Occupy Wallstreet protests, I think many would agree that using violence against peaceful protestors is wrong.  I need 150 signatures for this petition to be posted on the white house petition website.  If it gets 25,000 signatures Obama will make a statement concerning what we are petitioning.  If you could send this to anyone you know that might care I would appreciate it.

I would have posted this earlier, but I was at work… anyway, there was a huge march through Manhattan earlier that was escorted by a ginormous NYPD presence. The march went to Foley Square (bam pow kaboom!), with some arrests and some fighting and is now moving towards the Brooklyn Bridge. There appears to be tens of thousands of people here.
