Occupy (name the city) has been so emboldened this last year that it loudly announced its intentions to disrupt and destroy in the name of the “oppressed” 99 percent. Obviously it intention was to hijack another peaceful march set to observe May Day and immigrant labor.

So how could Seattle cops look so woefully and inadequately prepared to protect an area they are charged to serve? Total mayhem reigned, and businesses and taxpayers are again on the hook to pick up the pieces.
