Occupy Philadelphia is the kissing cousin of Occupy Wall Street.
In Boston, the Occupy Boston protests are taking a different turn and they claim police brutality:
Boston Police Brutally Assault Occupy BostonAt 1:30 this morning hundreds of police in full riot gear brutally attacked Occupy Boston, which had peacefully gathered on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Boston Police Department made no distinction between protesters, medics, or legal observers, arresting legal observer Urszula Masny-Latos, who serves as the Executive Director for the Massachusetts branch of the National Lawyers Guild, as well as four medics attempting to care for the injured.
And another thing? How much is this costing cities on the verge of disaster like Philadelphia? And of course in Philadelphia, the Occupy movement is now got a racial bent? So if the race card gets played, what will that do other than cause a great divide in the protest? And what up with the mini occupation of Bucks County and some other out of the way places I wouldn't call suburbs but more like ummm countrified? Cows and goats will rise up in solidarity? Lordy if you are going to occupy suburbia will they have an Occupy Main Line? Can you see the mommies protesting with their lattes, stylists, and assorted "staff"?
I don't mean to be completely mocking because this country is firmly in the toilet right now and I think we are in a depression. It's just that is anyone other than the media and residents paying attention to these occupy movements? It just doesn't seem like the target audience is paying attention - and politicians seem to be doing business as usual. Maybe they need to solidify their message?
And speaking of politicians, is it election season in Radnor? I can't tell.
