“What a crap headline! Protestors Vs. Police. I'm starting to really dislike HuffPost - why are they framing the story that way? Yes, the police are serving those in power when they are squashing these protests, but they are part of the 99%. Its NOT protestors vs. police, it's 99% Vs. 1%.”

“We need a new site - I do not trust this one at all anymore. A FB page is preferable. I am waiting for someone to create something for us on the left where we can express ourselves without hall monitors in the room.”

“"In the wake of the mass arrest of anti-Wall Street protesters, a donation of $4.6 million that JPMorgan Chase made to the New York City Police Foundation is getting renewed attention..."
That might have something to do with it.”

“What part of breaking the law don't you progressives understand? If you want to protest it's your right but it's not a license to break the law...these idiots were breaking the law....plain and simple. The NYPD is no squashing the protest, they are enforcing the law. Don't want to follow the rules? don't protest...”

“Same thing happened to me - I'm a vegetarian, I ordered a bean & cheese burrito at Chipolte and got the pinto beans. My friends told me at a later date the pinto beans have bacon. Not cool Chipolte! Nobody mentioned the bacon and I didn't order any meat in my burrito.”

“But as someone with a limited diet, shouldn't you at least be aware of the reality that beans are frequently cooked with pork for added flavor? How about asking?”

“That's what the original Gonzo journalist, the late great Hunter S Thompson did. He was just ready to go. On his own terms and in his own time.
Maybe that's what Swensen did.”

“Suicide in our country is, unfortunately, a silent epidemic. Research on suicide indicates that those who attempt suicide bear similar patterns:
Feeling that she or he is a burden on others
A lack of social connection to others
Helpless and hopeless
These are common with depression. I am not suggesting that he was depressed, only that these are correlated.
A final, and fairly telling, factor is having to overcome the fear of death. If a person is helpless, hopeless, feels like a burden to others, has no sense of connection to this world, and no longer fears death, those factors are predictive of those who will attempt suicide.
Other research shows that substance abuse and chronic physical illnesses contribute, but not as much as those listed above.
Survivors of suicide typically experience a high level of emotional turmoil, pain, grief, and guilt. Many survivors struggle with their emotions for years.
These types of stories are heartbreaking.”

“So, someone who isn't depressed would just want to die? I think not.”

“mental illness is a *huge* risk factor for suicide. not saying this is definitely the case here, but to discount it would be wrong.”
