No books, no f**k

I am married to the person who brought me into her home late one night and showed me her books.  Seriously.  "Books" is not a euphemism. Books are cool!

More NYPD brutality

Certainly there's some distortion seeing things through the lens of a phone, but this video looks like the footage from Iran after their election when the state police moved into protest crowds, like thugs.  It's the supervisors, the white shirts, who are the worst.

Police Riot

The New York Times coverage of the Occupy Wallstreet protests is explicitly dismissive and belittling.  The comments there tell a different story.
"I saw what happened today on 12th Street between University and Fifth Ave. It was a Police Riot. It was traumatic and horrific the way the Police treated American citizens. It was a crime. 
I witnessed what a police state is like today. I will never look at law enforcement the same way again. I saw NYPD act like common thugs. I saw them beat people; I saw them mace young girls who were standing against a wall doing nothing that could be described as threatening. It is emotional disturbing that this could occur in the US, much less New York City. It was personally traumatic to watch this type of Police state tactics carried out by a large metropolitan police force that is ethnically and gender deserve. 
Today, NYC looked like Selma, Alabama of the 1960's."

The paramilitary state in action

Occupy Wallstreet protests.  A small group of young woman are already subdued by orange netting ("kettled"), then gratuitously pepper sprayed.  It's pure intimidation.  Don't EVER protest against your corporate overlords again!

This band's name reportedly came from a song title by the German, krautrock band "Can."  I've heard of them (Austin-based), but don't remember looking them up before.
