OWS Turns Ugly
While this writer supports the rights of everyone, including those he disagrees with, to protest on any matter for which they seek redress, he draws the line at the threat or use of violence. While the Lansing, Michigan OWS encampment remains placid – so far – the widespread reports of violence and threats to, for example, firebomb Macy’s with a ‘Molotov Cocktail’, require swift, sure and decisive action, now. The OWS crowd had their say, and now the day has arrived when the rest of us have ours – through the actions we expect of our public servants to keep the peace. The OWSers should remember that those who live by the sword sometimes end up sharing a cell with Icepick and Tiny.
