I don't know if this was the intent of the article but Occupy LA just sounds straight up frightening. And this is coming from someone who has donated food(not money, I hauled food from New Jersey to Liberty Plaza) and actually marched with the occupiers. If that is the reaction of someone who actually supports the Occupy movements I hate to think what more conservative people will do with this.
@Matt Cornell With great respect, even though I can understand how what you described would be bad it doesn't sound anything like what the article described. What you are talking about sounds bland, unfortunate, and ineffective. What the author was talking about sounds more like a heady mix of testosterone and confrontation.
