This has been heavily covered… on right-wing blogs, who have in general been engaged in what I consider a huge amount of Blaming the Victim with regard to the OWS movement. When anything bad happens in the vicinity of the camps, it’s proof of the general lawlessness of the filth involved in OWS. This includes violence, rape, lice, infectious diseases, robbery — it’s ALWAYS the fault of the occupiers. No hint that maybe, just maybe, downtown Oakland (or Manhattan, or wherever) was not a perfectly safe, clean, and quiet place to be before the OWS people got there.

I’m not in perfect sympathy with OWS’s tactics but I’m pretty sympathetic to their principles and I get really fed up with the way they get blamed for their own suffering.

Apparently he was a veteran.

On the one hand, it might be the start of a crackdown/psychological warfare.

On the other…Oakland.

The main headline on Drudge right now is “DEATH, DISEASE PLAGUE ‘OCCUPY’ PROTESTS”

And then the article links to a story about the Oakland story here (not even certain the men involved in the shooting were “occupiers”) and a suicide in Vermont. It takes a sick mind to distort the news the way Matt Drudge just to generate clicks
