Naomi Wolf, a prominent author/journalist, who herself was arrested during the OWS protests, releases a BEYOND SCATHING piece covering the now obviously-orechestrated crackdowns on the various “Occupy” demonstrations and protests in respective cities. It’s not at all surprising why she chose to have it published in the UK paper “The Guardian”. Her findings sheds incredible new light and a fairly sickening explanation for the actions of the various police agencies involved. It is very odd to see that the distinctions being made in their behaviors, versus their relative inaction during the various TP demonstrations that have happened nationwide, as I have stated in my previous commentary.
With the findings she cracks open, the upper echelons of the US government have some serious explaining to do. All the way up to and including Obama’s desk:

US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park.
