If they are a bunch of hippies…why do the police need so many guns?

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/naomi-wolf-arrested-while-defending-occupy-wall-street-025115027.html

Naomi Wolf writes a pretty clear account of what happened here…

The areas surrounding Zuccotti Park are cordoned off as if it’s 9/11 all over again.  The pre-emptive measures that have been taken make it next to impossible for any growth to happen without significant battles for territory with armed police on horseback.  Essentially the protesters, no matter how you feel about them, are boxed in, surrounded, insulated by a wall of armour and guns. 

Who the fuck pays for this?

This is our America today.  And I say to you, especially if you think the protestors are silly, out of work, entitled, hippy types…If they are just a bunch of hippies then what’s with all the guns?

What does this response say about how the people pulling the strings feel about the protest?
