Arrested For Not Eating?

Occupy Wall Street protesters on hunger strike arrested

This is why it is a misnomer to call them "law enforcement." More accurately they should just be "enforcement." Here public employees whose function is to protect and to serve are doing just that--protecting the ruling class from the democratic aspirations of the working class. Is it a crime not to eat? Should it be? The goal here is to prevent these hunger strikers from winning the sympathy of the public. Obviously Bloomberg and Wall Street don't give a damn about these people, they are trying to deny them the publicity for which the hunger strike was undertaken.|+Independent+news+for+the+world%29&utm_content=Yahoo!+Mail
