The following tweet captures the fact that the laws are only being enforced in favor of the 1% … and against the 99%:
If only they enforced bank regulations like they do [Zuccotti] park rules, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
According to the Supreme Court, money is now speech and corporations are now people. But when real people without money assemble to express their dissatisfaction with the political consequences of this, they’re treated as public nuisances and evicted.
As Salon notes:
If you’re an ordinary citizen, and you get caught on video dousing people with noxious gas like Bologna did, you get summarily locked up. But when you’re an NYPD commanding officer…like Bologna was at the time of his attack, you get essentially a free pass.
No wonder one of the central demands of Occupy Wall Street is to enforce the laws for the 99%.
