A member of the New York Police Department, who requested anonymity, has told Big Government that crime is even more prevalent at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration than has been reported.
"It is far from the butterflies and Bambis that the media is trying to portray," he told us. He described sexual assault as being a particular problem, partly because of drug use at the site:
There are many incidents of sexual touching and groping that goes unreported to us, mainly because the alleged victim is either too stoned or high to properly ID them or they "dont want to get the guy in trouble." One girl, with hickeys all over her neck was brought to us and claimed she was raped....She said she had gotten high and had sex with one guy then sex with the other guy, but when guy #3 tried, she rebuffed him. She later got stoned somewhere else and returned to her place where guy #3 came back and had sex with her (she thinks) but she remembers blacking out and him leaving and her pants off.
He concluded that sexual assault in Zuccotti Park "is much more wide spread than even they [the activists] think."
As for the cause motivating the Occupy Wall Street protest, the NYPD officer told us:
Although personally, I agree in principle with them in pointing out the flaws of our government, however they're protesting the wrong group. It wasn't banks who caused the housing meltdown. It wasn't banks who tanked the economy. It's the politicians and the special interest money in politics that has destroyed this country. Banks are easy targets. When they set up this protest on the front lawn of the White House, or on the steps of the Capitol, then I'd support it. Hell I might even set up a tent myself. However until they protest each and every congressman and senator and this president, they are a bunch of hypocrites. And you know damn well that they would never ever protest a sitting Democrat POTUS, especially this one.
Everyone has a right to protest, yet that right stops when it infringes upon another's rights. And as long as you don't break the law everything is fine, but for some of them, breaking the law is their aim.
He concluded: "No matter with all the OT [overtime pay] I'm getting, it will be a very nice Christmas for my family."
