FBI coordinated crackdown on Occupy Protests

According to Naomi Wolf, the coordinated arrests and violence against protestors were not coincidentally timed.

It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves.

    Weeell, duh! Each city used their counter-terrorism plans against the OWS folks after the US Conference of Mayors met with FBI officials in October of 2011. The crackdown occurred right after that. In St. Louis, the “Incident Command” procedures of the joint FBI and SLMPD worked to break up the protests.
