Comment: Exactly

(See in situ)


The NYPD has admitted publicly that their "show of force" is a psyop, as are the random searches. They state they are meant to intimidate the would be evil doers and that pragmatically both serve little purpose. The sinister aspect, in my opinion, is that over time these actions inevitably become less shocking as you become desensitized. I say sinister because its my personal belief that they want us to be desensitized. When they cordoned off lower Manhattan with check points to try and cut off people attempting to join the occupy movement they met with no resistance. In fact new yorkers barely raised an eye brow as we are so used to our freedom of travel being restricted. Its sad really.

Use things not People. Love People not things.
