Occupy Protesters Hurl Bibles And Bricks Off The Roof at Police

Two quick comments; if the hotel had Korans instead instead of Bibles they would have stuck to the bricks, and if the story was about a singular Tea Part Protester (instead of Occupy ProtesterS) and a singular brick (instead of brickS and BibleS) this would be the only thing reported on certain networks for days instead of being mostly ignored.

"You couldn’t ask for a more quintessentially emblematic moment to sum up the ethos behind the Occupy movement.

Friday night in San Francisco, Occupy protesters broke into an abandoned hotel, took the Bibles still remaining in the vacant rooms, climbed on the roof and attacked the police with the Bibles, along with bricks and other projectiles:

Occupy San Francisco’s “Day of Action” turned violent Friday night when protesters occupied an abandoned hotel and began throwing objects at police officers from the roof, police said.

“Once they gained access [to the hotel], some of them made it to the top of the roof and they then began to throw bibles down at the officers,” San Francisco Police Department spokesman Carlos Manfredi said.

“One of officers was struck with a brick to the chest and one of our lieutenants was struck in the hand with an object and may have damaged or even broken his hand,” he said.
