    Beautiful.  In the spirit of it all I think law enforcement should just surround the occupiers with patrol dummies and leave it at that.  It would cut down on overtime as well.

      lol. great idea. scarecrows and wing chun dummies with police bobbies. providing hours of fun and exercise!

        It would be amusing to clandestinely occupy locations with hoards of mannequins – could be a flash mob technique.

      For some reason Seymour Hersh’s claim that he saw video of US personnel raping children at Abu Graib comes to mind.

    In America you’d get clubbed and tear gassed for this.  Then locked in jail indefinitely by the military.

Kind of makes old fashioned violence look dignified in comparison.
