What the letter failed to say, The pepper spray was used because a protester tryed to spook the horse and put people in danger. It would have made great headlines if the officer was unable to keep control of the horse. Luckly the protesters plan failed.

Spook the horse? They tried to grab the reigns! Shooting them would not have been unjustified... pepper spray was a small price to pay.

These idiot protestors all need haircuts... hickory haircuts.

"According to the Associated Press, the DNA on the chain--used by activists to hold a subway's emergency exit open--has not been matched to any one person at the protest"

So what? The DNA of a murder victim was found on a chain in a public park: how does that reflect "what the Occupy Movement is About"?

People like you are the perfect audience for FoxNews.

Tea Partiers are the ultimate suckers. The GOP and corporate America have actually convinced these poor rubes that health insurance is a bad thing!

There's a Tea Partier born every minute...and the parents are usually related.

So "shooting them would not have been unjustified"? You're one sick f*ck, you know that?

And, as to your "they all need haircuts" remark...how old are you? LOL, my grandfather used to say sh*t like that!

Go f*ck yourself, old man.

It's called assaulting a police officer.

You obviously don't know what a hickory haircut is. Google it.

If you want healthcare, get a job that provides it, it's not my job to pay for it for you.

Hey...old fart...nobody gives a sh*t about your 1940s phraseology.

Go change your colostomy bag and stop bothering people.

Ok... I'll put it in plain Englih since comprehension isn't your strong suit.

Those protestors who tried to pull the Trooper off the horse deserved to be shot.

The rest of the protestors? Fire hoses, tasers, and billy clubs.

There's an engineer born every minute too. Most of them can't find their way out of a paperbag.

Now you're just making sh*t up. I was there. NOBODY tried to pull ANYBODY off of a horse.

"Fire hoses, tasers, and billy clubs"...you would've made a great nazi.

BTW... Thank you Supreme Court for upholding the Affordable Healthcare Act and giving us health coverage!!!!

It's good thing that it passed, too, because a lot of Tea Partiers had heart attacks after the decision was handed down.

That conflicts with the official reports. I trust the official record over than the word of some agitator who was probably high at the time anyway. I drove by the site a few times... the smell of BO, patchouli, and marijuana was overpowering.

Whatever. You were told to disperse and didn't follow an order. You were met with very mild force relative to what you deserved.

It's the "giving" that's the problem. I have no responsibility to provide health care to anyone other than my own family.

Doesn't matter... it's all going to get overturned by Congress anyway.

Oh, you mean the "offical report" written by the police? You're right, the police NEVER lie.

Since you're a big follower of authority figures, how abut that "offical report" by the SCOTUS on the Affordable Healthcare Act? LMAO!!!!!!!

People like you are amazing. You hate the government...unless it's oppressing someone you don't like, then you fall into lock-step like a brownshirt. You do whatever any authority figure tells you to do, because you're either too stupid or too scared to think for yourself.

You're a bunch of conformist pu$$ies, sucking the corporate d*ck. You follow idiots like Rush Limbau and Bill O'Reilly, because you think that those guys are "on your side". I've got news for you, sunshine, those guys are multi, multi millionaires who couldn't give sh*t one about the Tea Part or anything that it stands for...they go home at night to their mansions, pour a big scotch and laugh at rubes like you who have made them millions.

When the f*ck are you gonna grow up?

I would just like to say that I think that Rush Limbau is a wonderful, wonderful man who truly cares about the conservative agenda and America. He exhibits a very genuine and profound desire to make this a better country. In fact, in November, I'm planning a junket to Venus in order to spread the word of Rush to the Venutians.

Good! I'm glad that you're laughing, because you're going to need that sense of humor when you get your next tax bill...you see, I'm planning on going to the doctor a lot, and you're going to have to help pay for it.

Love the SCOTUS!!!!
