Occupying Wall Street is slowly moving towards more and more violence. As seen on October 6, 2011, it has gone from peaceful and somewhat amusing, to violent and very serious. The problem with this is two opposing forces. The protesters, do have the right to demonstrate their anger and frustration, no matter how misguided it is.
And the police have the right to smash them with their batons and spray them with pepper spray, and then haul them off to jail. The problem will come when the smashing and the anger on both sides, gets much worse, and I believe, it is coming soon. There are too many people pushing the buttons of the masses, and the police are the trigger.
