This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form. JUAN GONZALEZ: Police departments across the country are coming under criticism for using excessive force against Occupy Wall Street protesters over the past two months. In Seattle, Mayor Mike McGinn apologized Wednesday hours after an 84-year-old retired Seattle school teacher named Dorli Rainey was pepper-sprayed in the face during a protest. Photographs of the woman moments after she was pepper-sprayed went viral. One photograph shows the chemical irritant and liquid used to treat it dripping from her chin. 84-Year-Old Dorli Rainey, Pepper-Sprayed at Occupy Seattle, Denounces "Worsening" Police Crackdowns

Posted 2 years ago on Oct. 27, 2011, 2:53 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt Last night hundreds marched through the streets of NYC, chanting "New York is Oakland, Oakland is New York." We circled City Hall, ran in the streets, refused to be kettled or have our voices silenced, marched up broadway, North on 6th Ave, circled around on Bleecker, and marched south against traffic on 6th ave, running past police barricades, running past our fear, running in solidarity with each other and #occupyoakland. #ows Takes The Streets In Solidarity With #occupyoakland

He ought to know. Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff says in a new book that the 1,299 nights he spent in jail have opened his eyes about how to rid Washington of corruption. Continue Reading Abramoff, who was convicted for his involvement in a massive corruption scheme in which he pleaded guilty to cheating Indian tribes out of tens of millions of dollars in lobbying fees and bribing lawmakers and staffers with lavish gifts, writes that he had “an epiphany” in prison.

Occupy Protests Plagued By Reports Of Sex Attacks, Violent Crime Protestors set up a "safe haven tent" at Zuccotti Park this week after reports of sexual assaults at the protest site. The miltary-grade tent can accomodate up to 19 people.AP2011 A rash of reports of sexual assaults at Occupy Wall Street protests across the country has both police and activists raising red flags. Nearly a half-dozen assaults have been reported at Occupy camps, including three at the New York City protests, which have prompted protesters to set up a “women only” tent in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park to provide a safe haven. “The concern would be the rapes and attacks that aren’t reported,” said Sgt. Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, a police union in New York City.
How Occupy Wall Street Cost Me My Job 1. You don't fire someone for potentially iffy cause if you can just lay them off due to budget cutbacks. One is majorly lawyer-uppable and the other mostly isn't. I've managed hiring/firing and this is a no-brainer.
OWS: The Revolutionaries, Their Plan and Liberty's Last Stand By Robert F Beaudine The “occupying” protests here in America have been characterized as spontaneous and leaderless. Protesters, politicians, and the mass media have compared it to the so-called spontaneous uprisings of the Arab Spring. In reality, neither has been spontaneous nor leaderless. The Arab Spring was planned years ago and then executed by the forces of oppression that the people thought they were attempting to overthrow.
Occupy Wall Street Is Without Power 53 is still part of 99. I'm not talking about some deep ideological shift that magically happened. I'm talking about how different "Us vs. Them" looked in 2001 from how it looks now.
How The Media Is Covering #OccupyOakland's Horrific Night
By Zaid Jilani on October 3, 2011 at 11:25 am "How Unequal We Are: The Top 5 Facts You Should Know About The Wealthiest One Percent Of Americans" Source: http://wearethe99percent.tumblr.com/ As the ongoing occupation of Wall Street by hundreds of protesters enters its third week — and as protests spread to other cities such as Boston and Los Angeles — demonstrators have endorsed a new slogan: “We are the 99 percent.” This slogan refers an economic struggle between 99 percent of Americans and the richest one percent of Americans, who are increasingly accumulating a greater share of the national wealth to the detriment of the middle class. It may shock you exactly how wealthy this top 1 percent of Americans is. How Unequal We Are: The Top 5 Facts You Should Know About The Wealthiest One Percent Of Americans
Before & After: Occupy Oakland
US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park. But just when Americans thought we had the picture – was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities? – the picture darkened.

On top of cold weather and logistical pains, "Occupy" protesters in Chicago last week dealt with an embarrassing stunt. Dozens of photocopied McDonald's job applications were reportedly thrown from the Chicago Board of Trade building and onto Occupy Chicago protestors earlier this week, according to Chicagoist (h/t Mediaite). In April, McDonald's announced plans to hire 50,000 new employees in a single day. The fast food giant was subsequently flooded with more than one million applications, a McDonald's spokeswoman told HuffPost in April.

Hungry for Jobs and for Change, Scientists Join the Occupy Movement | Guest Blog Traffic backed up along Baltimore’s inner harbor last week as protestors from the “Occupy” movement waved signs and shouted at the passing drivers. And among the protestors were scientists and science students, unhappy with their job prospects, their funding prospects, and the way science is viewed in America. I had heard about the protests on the news, and hadn’t paid too much attention. But as I drove by the crowd, a sign held by one of the protesters caught my eye:

Why “Occupy Wall Street” Critics Are More Clueless Than the Protesters | BNET Henry Blodget purports to have no idea what the " Occupy Wall Street" protestors in Manhattan's Liberty Plaza really want. The NYT and other major media outlets are equally baffled, characterizing the movement as rudderless or downright loony. Even Mother Jones , the lefty pub named after a famous 19th century labor organizer, sniffs at what it describes as the demonstrators' feckless "posturing."
