This mild report by the NYTimes of what happened at a anniversary march by Occupy Wall Street last night sounds like it could be describing exactly what happened in Tahrir Square at the beginning of the Egyptian Revolution… Yes, it is the evidence of a police state on the rise, yes, everyone should be appalled whether you agree with the politics and tactics of Occupy or not! Our freedom can not be trampled on like this when we hold it in front of our troops like a banner as we invade and bomb other countries and sacrifice our young soldiers!
