These OWS morons should be put way for a very long time! Short & sweet.
Anyone who claims entrapment buy a brain cell & then a clue!
Here is a link that might be useful: Morons
These kind of anarchists always infiltrate rallies and demonstrations.
I would be very hesitant to link them to the OWS group. They had their own agenda.
I don't remember a membership table for OWS when I attended rallies it was a loose knit collection of divergent groups that included anarchist. I would not claim they are representative of OWS but the label fits as well as the anarchist label. All morons aren't anarchists either but there's a heavy case for the flip side of this

That is true, and I have argued the flip side to this so I understand what you're saying.
It is the downside of not being a cohesive group with a fully formed goal and stated method of reaching that goal. Basically, it allows people to justify any goal and any means yet still be tied to the mainstream group. While I have agreed with the ideas behind OWS, I've always been critical of the manner the movement proceeded.
That said, I still think this group is similar to the other troublemakers that hide behind peaceful protesters. They take advantage of the protection of peaceful protest, then use violence to create anarchy and melt away as the other protesters get swept up in the backlash.
Truth be told, these guys cripple both the protester AND the law enforcement side of things. Then the police and protesters are left blaming each other instead of both sides working to get rid of the real problem. Those who would use vandalism and violence for their own amusement.
As a gay activists we had many diverse groups join together Republican, Democrat, Socialist still we ostracized and banned from our parades NAMBLA!
Violent elements needs to be ostracized!
I'll be interested to see how politicized this becomes!
labrea, the first time I learned what NAMBLA meant was back when I participated on a conservative site. I was one of a handful of liberals. The conservative gentleman who ran the site knew all about NAMBLA. I thought it was kind of weird that he knew so much about that group and always seemed to be referencing it.
It's part of what turned me against the libertarians I use to associate with a little toono none of our business is our business for me. I was pretty disheartened to see the same old grinding mediocre workers world party crew at an OWS rally trying to get some traction going with a youth crowd that looked at them like the old dynosaur that they are.
OP pretty much says it all for me.
