The Occupy Wall Street crowd currently residing in a place Michelle Malkin calls Kamp Alinksy is full of people who do not really know why they are there. They protest capitalism while using and wearing the materials produced by the capitalism they claim to detest. They demand that their debt be forgiven. They demand that the wealth of the rich be taken and redistributed. They claim that they want the banksters arrested for their crimes by protesting at the homes of people who are not part of the banking system. In short, they are disorganized and most likely showed up for the free sex and drugs.
One theme that continues is the anger at the bankers. The OWS crowd is mad that the bankers, according to them, caused the economic problems by participating in illegal activities. These people want those bankers arrested and held accountable.
How do these people protest the alleged illegal activities?
They do so by committing illegal acts themselves. They have vandalized property, disrupted traffic, participated in violence and have clashed with the police. Hundreds of them have been arrested for breaking the law. These people are demanding that their charges be dropped or they will all clog up the judicial system by demanding a jury trial. I previously wrote about this and stand by my position that the prosecution should push for maximum sentences for anyone who demands a jury trial.
But let me get this straight. The people who are protesting the bankers for allegedly breaking the law and not being held accountable have broken the law and are demanding not to be held accountable.
Does it seem right that these people think the way to express their anger over alleged illegal activity is to participate in illegal activity?
Does it seem right that they think it is wrong the bankers escaped punishment from our legal system but are demanding not to be punished by our legal system?
I do not agree with these people but could respect their position if they were not breaking the law to express their dissatisfaction at what they see as people who broke the law.
They need to go get jobs.
First they need long, hot showers.
