And the Occupy acts of violence just keep on coming. John Hayward, from Human Events, has the story.
The Occupy Portland crowd decided to stage a march in support of Scott Olsen on Wednesday night. He’s the Iraq war veteran (and founder of the “I Hate the Marine Corps” web site) who was injured when police attempted to control the first Occupy Oakland riot. That’s the one that erupted when the mob defied a lawful order to clean out the park in front of City Hall, not the one that shut down the Port of Oakland and cost law-abiding businesses a couple million dollars.
The Portland solidarity march went well, according to the local KATU news… assuming you’re prepared to ignore the way they shoved a cop in front of a moving bus:
The march, from Terry Schrunk Plaza, began at about 5:30 p.m. and continued for a little more than two hours. At one point it crossed a bridge into Southeast Portland before returning to the west side.
Police made one arrest during the march. They said 30-year-old David Anthony Burgess shoved a police sergeant into a TriMet bus while it was moving, then dashed back into the crowd.
The sergeant suffered minor injuries and did not require medical treatment, police said.
Police later found Burgess after the march and arrested him. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail, accused of assaulting a police officer, interfering with police, second-degree disorderly conduct and harassment.
That’s incredibly serious, if not attempted murder. Then again, it always seems that violence is the way of the left. Also, as we have observed, and as Hayward points out in his article, the Occupods seen rather slippery when it comes to the violence in their movement, always blaming someone else. However, the next following video would seem to indicate that pushing people in front of buses might be something in the Occupod playbook…
So, they say that they weren’t to blame for the cop being pushed in front of a bus, but their media relations guy makes a veiled threat to do it again?
They just keep on showing their true colors, don’t they?
