A report on the Occupy Wall Street movement takeover of a property was being covered by the local news in San Francisco. Just as the reporter said (twice) that the protestors were "relatively peaceful" and explains that anarchist infiltrators and the Black Bloc movement are the ones who "cause trouble," the news camera caught a crazy fool throwing bricks at police.
During the May Day protest, 26 people were arrested when they attempted to "occupy" a vacant building in San Francisco, according to the Huffington Post. The OWS movement can now add to their list of felony charges; this one stemming from the building takeover by protestors. The charges are "felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of felony assault on a police officer and one count of felony vandalism."
District Attorney George Gascon said four protesters will be charged with misdemeanor trespassing, and the fifth will be charged with the felonies listed above. Gascon did not indicate if the remaining protesters will be charged. The building that the protesters attempted to occupy was also the scene of 80 arrests on April 2nd for the same reason. The protesters are relentless. The four charged for misdemeanor trespassing were also arrested last time.
The District attorney said in the statement, "I am one of millions of Americans who supports the right to protest and agrees with the original intent of the Occupy movement's efforts to call out financial institutions and their role in causing economic inequalities. ... The reckless vandalism and violence on April 30 and May 1, however, crossed the line."
One of those arrested, Jesse Nesbitt, allegedly threw bricks into a crowd, hitting one protester in the face who refused treatment. The same individual was previously arrested for throwing a bottle at a city employee who was trying to clean up the encampment at Justin Hermann Plaza.
The media and the Occupy Wall Street movement itself need to stop apologizing for the violence in this movement and to denounce it immediately!
