    They call the NYPD -- and it becomes abundantly clear that the cops down there are sick of the antics.

    “Every single night it’s the same thing. I mean, some guy was a victim of rape!” an officer snarls. “There comes a time when it’s over. This is a disaster. It’s all we’re doing, every two seconds, is locking somebody up every time. It’s done.
    “It’s done,” he repeats. “Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest.”

    Scenes like this -- and far worse -- have been playing out since the Zuccotti Park “occupation” began on Sept. 17.

    The parcel is now a sliver of madness, rife with sex attacks, robberies and vigilante justice.

    It’s a leaderless bazaar that’s been divided into state-like camps -- with tents packed together so densely that the only way to add more would be to stack them.

    And despite an NYPD watchtower overhead and the entire north side of Zuccotti lined with police vehicles, it is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous places in New York City.

    Another quote from the same article:

    “We have three-quarters of a million dollars in the bank and all these f--king people are not doing financial accounting while we’re calling for it from the larger corporations,” says the transgender leader. “A lot of good people are quitting.”

    A day later, a female-only “safety tent” would be erected to shield women from predators.

    Organizers plan to add a medical tent, as well as others designed to provide safe sleeping for gay, transgender and co-ed groups.

    The threat of rape is very real here -- for women and men.

    Yep - more pablum. icon_rolleyes.gif We have thefts, rape, murder - not to mention a lack of transparency with which they are handling money. So is that irony or hypocrisy or both?

    Sounds like an M&A office to me.

    This is how the National Enquirer reports stories...every "source" is unnamed, so there is no way to confirm anything. This so-called reporter was literally surrounded by hundreds of people, but she only managed to get one name? Did she forget to bring a pencil? A first-year journalism student could do better. Sounds made up to me. Typical hyperbolic trash from the NYPost -- New York's tabloid for dim-bulb conservatives.

    Actually, it's neither. Like all of Murdoch's rags the NY Post has long stopped being a source of credible reportage. Even KissTheSky's comparison to the Enquirer gives it too much weight.
