Occupied

October 17, 2011 at 1:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I’m very eager to see how the Occupy Lincoln protesters are treated, and how they behave themselves. If you haven’t been following along, similar Occupy Whatever protesters around the country have generally behaved themselves, whereas some police officers—notably in New York City—have been anything but professional. And you know how it is—the rotten apples spoil the broth. Er, you know what I mean.

Not that I expect any trouble here in Lincoln. For one thing, the protest is a bit ... tiny at the moment. The odds of it exploding into a big kerfuffle are pretty low. Furthermore, LPD isn’t widely known for its brutish behavior. If anything I’d expect local cops to pick up donuts each morning for the protesters. Come to think of it, that’s not a half bad idea.

I’m not the protesting sort, in general, so you won’t see me camped out Downtown. Besides, I’d rather camp out on Governor Heineman’s lawn so I could greet him each morning with reveille until he wakes up to all the problems going on at HHS. Considering Dave’s history of obliviousness, I think the Occupy folks have a better chance of effecting change.

Are any of you planning to join the protest?

I would like to personally encourage the OWS crowd to stay out there as long as they’d like, and the Democrat Party to fully embrace them.  The true colors of the far left are for once out there for all to see.  Stand on your principles! ... preferably through November 2012!
