NYC Letter: OWS In Its Own Words -- F*ck The POH-leece!
Day 1,130 of CHOPE
No Occupy-A-City-Town-Or-Walmart is the real deal till it stages an anti-police action. This is usually a march with the intent of provoking the arrests of heroic occupiers for the news media.
Saturday a "F*ck The Police" march made its way through the streets of Denver. Officially not an Occupy Denver action, the small turnout was replete with OD occupiers answering the Anonymous call to anarchy.
Global Friends, LulzPirates, Anarchists and Anons:
Join Anonymous and an array of other determined activists on Saturday, February 25 at 7PM for a march against police brutality worldwide.
Today, we live in an oppressive police state. No more are the police there to act on behalf of the public, to safeguard our freedoms and essential liberties from those who would violate them. Instead, the police act as the long arm of the state itself. They are its on-the-ground bullies, beating down the everyday citizen with their tools of tyranny – the nightstick, the pepper spray, their fists, their handcuffs, their Tasers.
... Join us as we don our masks and bandanas and unite as one strong voice opposing the violent and dystopian police state in which we all now live.
Join Anonymous. Join us in solidarity and let us march as one through the streets of Denver as we yell, in unison, "FUCK THE POLICE."

DENVER February 25, 2012 (KUSA-TV) - Police say about 60 to 70 protestors blocked traffic and set off fireworks in downtown Denver Saturday night in an anti-police protest. Police say five people were arrested for tagging RTD, police and personal vehicles. The protestors also threw paint balls and balloons full of urine.
The group was using a tactic called black bloc, wearing black clothing and ski masks to conceal their identities. The protestors forced the mall shuttle to shut down on the first night of Denver Restaurant Week.
Because nothing advances the "99%" revolution quite like vandalism and banjaxing local businesses.
Police say the protests started about 7:30 p.m. and had ended by 9 p.m.
Revolutionaries that keep banker's hours.
Verum Serum has a video of one of the arrests. We have enlarged the transcript.
Megaphone Guy: Until there is peace this protest will continue.
CHANT: No justice. No Peace. F*ck the POH-leece.
The police arrive. The protesters scatter.
Protester: Burn it down! Burn it down!
Commotion. The police swarm a protester.
Protester: I'm on the sidewalk. Perfectly legal. Perfectly legal. 100% legal. 100% legal. [Unintelligible: "Have you forgotten terrorists?"] And you know what? See what's happened out there. And you know what? What do you call that? It's going to happen here.
Police: Get [your hands] out of your pocket.
Protester: I'll keep my hands were the f*ck I want. I'm an Amer-- [Shouts to protesters in periphery.] Hey remember! We’re American citizens. We don’t have to put up with terrorists. These people are terrorists. These people are fucking terrorists. These people are [Unintelligible.] ...put in jail. These people should be put down like the motherf*cking dogs they are. And when you do no one’s going to cry for it.
You’ve got all the weapons now. America’s the fucking land of [Unintelligible: "dusting"] and you have addresses, families, don’t you? And we have the internet. That’s scary. Hey, that’s cool you can have the pepper spray now. You’ve got addresses, you’ve got families, you’ve got everything. Go away. We’ll go away. Remember, it can happen here or at your houses.
Off-camera protester: This is what a police state looks like!
No, dear revolutionary poseur, this is what a police state looks like.
To ensure that the people would become and remain submissive, East German communist leaders saturated their realm with more spies than had any other totalitarian government in recent history. The Soviet Union's KGB employed about 480,000 full-time agents to oversee a nation of 280 million, which means there was one agent per 5,830 citizens. Using Wiesenthal's figures for the Nazi Gestapo ["The Gestapo had 40,000 officials watching a country of 80 million, while the Stasi employed 102,000 to control only 17 million."], there was one officer for 2,000 people. The ratio for the Stasi [scil., Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, "MfS" or "Stasi"] was one secret policeman per 166 East Germans. When the regular informers [scil., inoffizielle Mitarbeiter, "IM"] are added, these ratios become much higher: In the Stasi's case, there would have been at least one spy watching every 66 citizens! When one adds in the estimated numbers of part-time snoops, the result is nothing short of monstrous: one informer per 6.5 citizens. It would not have been unreasonable to assume that at least one Stasi informer was present in any party of ten or twelve dinner guests.
We only wish Occupiers had the pleasure of being whisked off to a real police state to ply their brand.
F*CK THE POLICE MARCH
Occupy Oakland January 7, 2012
"F*ck The Cops. We Don’T Need'em. All We Want Is Total Freedom."
(A) God bless them for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective.
On second thought.
(B) My understanding, I don't -- we're not -- as opposed to the Tea Party which was practically a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Republican Party, we don't really have much of a connection with the Occupy [movement].
