Just as the Democrats were trying to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street iPhone toting crowd, OWS became more unfocused. The Democratic Party must be pleased they have support of so many fugitives and hedonistic muddle heads.
There's crime, reported the New York Post:
“I got warrants. I’m running from the law,” boasted Dave, 24, a scrawny, unshaven miscreant in filthy clothes from Stamford, Conn. “I’m not even supposed to be here, but it’s as good a spot as any to hide.”
Wanted for burglary, the drug-addled fugitive said some of his hard-partying pals clued him in that the protest was a good place to be fed, get wasted and crash.
There's drugs and sex, reported the UK Daily Mail:
Conspicuously living among the politically active in the makeshift village in Zuccotti Park are opportunistic junkies and homeless people - making the most of the free food on offer.
Also present and infuriating the hard core of activists are a number of teens looking to turn the gathering into an urban rave.
Among the banners and flags are now discarded packets of condoms, cigarettes and bottles of spirits, while naked youngsters happily get together with just sleeping bags covering their modesty.There's other parties demonstrations reported The Boston Herald.
The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury man’s upcoming trial.
The Daily Mail picked up on a less appealing event -- the Wall Street demonstrator taking the dump on the police car. The photo can be found here.
If the ambition of the demonstrators is the destruction of Wall Street, they may get their way. The Atlantic Wire says 10,000 Wall Street employees could lose their jobs next year.
