Retired Philadelphia Police Captain Ray Lewis is arrested for participating in the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011.
I can’t look at any of those Goldman Sacks,et al guys without wanting to line them up and smack them across the collective face with a sock full of quarters.
Watch and learn, and remember.

A few occupy movement images I found:
The effect of the ruling is to reopen the disciplinary case against Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna more than two years after the pepper-spraying episode. The matter had appeared closed after the district attorney’s office in Manhattan decided against criminal charges and the Police Department concluded its internal inquiry by docking Inspector Bologna 10 vacation days.
But in a decision issued Friday, Justice Joan B. Lobis of State Supreme Court ordered that Inspector Bologna submit to an interview by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, an independent city agency that investigates police misconduct.
From the early days of the Occupy movement in Zuccotti Park, Lower Manhattan.
These words have stuck with me ever since I first heard them on a Occupy San Francisco March over a year ago now. I think it was my second or third Saturday march and the biggest I had been to yet. We were coming down Market Street back towards the Federal Reserve Bank when over the nearest megaphone to me I heard a rough voice rise over the chants of “Banks Got Bailed Out, We Got Sold Out” or whatever it was we were screaming, that said something along the lines of…
“When I was born and raised in this country I was promised a great deal of things if I worked for them, I was told I was lucky and that the ones in charge were looking out for me. I was told to believe this is freedom. They Lied.”
I never got to see who said this because when I located the source of the sound I saw a young, female protester (obviously not the rough, older male voice I had heard) placing the megaphone back to her own mouth and continuing the chants.
I went home later that day and wrote down what I could about the march and as much of that quote as possible.
