Patrick Meighan writes for the show Family Guy. If what he says in the above article is true, I do not know Patrick Meighan but do not see a real plus for him to make up such a tale, then we are not living in the place(s) we think we do and all the things that we like to go on and on about, liberty, freedom, civil rights, etc., etc. ad nausea, is a pack of lies intended to make us feel better, kind of like the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.
If you do not care stop reading right now.
If you do here are a few observations about this article.
1) The way this writer and the others around him were treated is deplorable and I am ashamed that in our country, some, law enforcement officers treat people like this.
2)They zip cuffed people until their hands were blue?
3 They made them kneel on concrete for 7 hours, zip cuffed, before taking them to the jail?
4) The crime with which they were arrested was a misdemeanor and everyone else that day in Los Angeles who committed a similar misdemeanor was fined and let go. All the Occupiers were jailed, fined and had their bail “refused.”
5) Why has no one on Wall Street been prosecuted?
I hope everyone who is interested in a first person view on what happens to Americans who protest, peacefully mind you, when they are detained by law enforcement officials read this. I hope this is the one guy that they regret hurting. I hope he continues to use his words in a powerful way and I hope that police who like to hurt people please stop.
