First, are tents NORMALLY allowed on the Quad? Second, if not, and the arrests are therefore lawful, then the blocking of public right-of-way by protestors to prevent the orderly removal of those arrested is in itself a crime against the public peace. As for 'peaceful protests', that is alot like fucking for virginity. If you are PROTESTING, you are confronting (attacking).
Instead of Ipads why dont students invest in Riot Gear. All of that gear and MORE can be purchased quite easily and think about it does one football team wear pads and train and the other doesn't?
Yes, the lulz doesn't mean we don't care. We care deeply. It merely helps deal with the empathised pain and anxiety. laughing gives lots of oxygen and that clears the thinking.

A former University of California policeman who stirred public outrage by pepper-spraying peaceful student protesters has been awarded $38,000 in worker's compensation for psychiatric damage he claimed to have suffered from the 2011 incident, the university said on Wednesday.
This is fucking outrageous. The pig that pepper sprayed these students was making $121,680 annually when he did this.
Between Vets, Cops, and the rest of the Govt staff, I am FUCKING SICK AND TIRED of them STEALING ABSURD amounts of money from people who are not government thugs.
This is all paid for by taxes and inflation. I did not want any of it. These fuckers are criminals.
I WANT THE GOD DAMN MONEY BACK YOU FUCKS.
Mother fucking pensions and salaries for government thugs that beat up the public or kill foreigners.
