To answer the question in the video, they protect and serve the 99 percent of the people who don't care about you and believe in upholding the law.
So they are mad at a bank, that gave someone a mortgage, who could not afford it or came on hard times and lost their house and its the banks fault? Sheesh go get a job or do something productive to better society.....
These professional protesters, who convene at ANY cause they don't like, are scofflaws. Throw 'em in the pokey and let 'em think about it for a few weeks. Capitalism in the good ole' US of A ain't going away any time soon. Many of us have arms to defend our personal property, and that's, regrettably, what it may come down to.
Get a job, scofflaws.
Get a job?? Jeez, you guys just don't get it, do you?
What makes you think they don't have a job, Wally?
Thanks, occupiers, for raising people's awareness!

Were you asleep during the financial crisis? The state of our miserable economy today is absolutely the banks' fault. We haven't seen such coordinated fraud and unchecked greed since before the Great Depression, and when their ponzi scheme blew up it was the taxpayers, you and me, who paid for it. None of those crooks have been held accountable for destroying the economy. Hence the public anger.
At least during the Great Depression people knew who screwed them.
I fail to see where disobeying the law helps anyone get their way. Didn't work for Bernie Madoff or Enron in the end. Why would it work for these people in the end? Yawn.
