Health and Safety . . . Oh Yeah

That’s the pretext for the cop sweep of OWS protestors at Zuccotti Park. Or as NYC’s billionaire mayor claims, that’s the reason for the eviction by what he called “the world’s greatest police department.” It’s the same police force recently convicted of planting drugs and currently charged with smuggling guns, armed robbery, making false arrests, and massive ticket-fixing. Falsis in unum, falsis in omnibus — false in one thing, false in all things.

Postscript: “You don’t need a metaphor to describe the horrors that just happened — but if 5,000 wonderful, radical, donated books being destroyed by the NYPD and thrown into the back of a garbage truck to be ground into landfill isn’t a metaphor, I don’t know what is.” — Anna Lekas Miller
