... what the legacy media doesn't want you to know and refuses to cover.
Via Big Government:
At the very beginning of the video, a distraught occupier complains about having been assaulted twice (“once with contaminated vomit“), and of other assaults in the camp occurring; including sexual assault. And the community’s failure to properly address the incidents. Directly after, another member points out the videographer (a non occupier), leading another member to attempt to censor the man behind the camera. All of which, mind you, is taking place in a public park.
A bit later on, the first man who broached the subject of assault, gives the camera man permission to film him, and he then proceeds to expound on the groups covering up assault and their policy to not get the police involved.
Via The Blaze at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan:
In a video posted on YouTube yesterday, a woman identified as an Occupy Wall St. protester in New York claimed that a deaf man was “raped” and that the incident might not have been reported to police. She also noted the rampant drug use making things unsafe.
“We’re trying to figure out what to do about [the drugs],” the girl begins in the video, and later hints that she’s part of the community affairs committee. “It’s putting all these people in danger–that, there’s sexual assault going on, we’re trying to deal with that … mostly drunk guys, going, groping girls, there was a guy that got raped, too, here–a deaf younger man.”
After the girl notes that there’s actually a place in the park for people to sleep under the watchful eye of others, the man interviewing her circles back around to the alleged rape:
Man: Did the guy, I mean, do these, did that get reported to the police, or did that stay inside the camp?
Girl: Well, OK, I’m not sure for that particular incident. Yeah, no I–that might have stayed inside the camp.
Later, she also recalls seeing a girl crying while saying that some guys tried to take advantage of her while sleeping.
Still, the alleged protester casts blame on the police, saying that they haven’t been responsive to some reports of abuse, including a woman getting punched in the face. However, she said that the organizers to encourage people to go to the police with claims of abuse.
So, let's get this straight: The Occupiers don't want the police until, of course, they want the police. Got it.

Young woman says she was raped over the weekend and nobody from the protest movement helped her.
Via Media Research Center at Occupy San Diego:
Here are a few highlights of the liberal press's love for police:
•Cries of ''police state'' and ''shame, shame, shame'' when the police won't do what the two protesters want;
•Harassing one officer about his daughter who is allegedly taught by the daughter of a protester, asking, ''Do you care about your daughter'' and screaming, ''you look like you are about to cry.'' When the officer arrested a protester who asked to be arrested, the duo threaten to show that video to the officer's daughter.
•The woman threatens the officers by shouting, ''You will be exposed,'' another implied threat going back to the docs-ing attack.
Another nearby protester's comment about one police officer: ''Fuck him!''
(ed. note: "We are Legion"... It is noted that is the response given to Christ before Christ cast the demons out of the man from Gadarenes. There is a certain symmetry here.)
Occupy Wall Street protesters are flocking to nearby health clinics for STD and HIV testing after getting their freak on in ’60s-style hookups with crusty strangers, sources told The Post yesterday.
“Last week was free love,” said a medical professional at a clinic located a short walk from Zuccotti Park, referring to the number of people who organizers have referred for sexually transmitted disease testing.
A volunteer at the park admitted concern among protesters about STDs.
“We give directions to clinics if people ask for information regarding STDs,” said the volunteer, who identified himself only as “Captain” and added that pregnancy tests are also a hot item.
“Like anything else, it happens. People ask, and we do the best we can for them.”
Volunteers at the medical tent hand out cash, usually $15 or $20, so the randy radicals can visit clinics that cater to a low-income clientele, the source said.
To the scoreboard: Screaming at and making thinly-veiled threats to the police... refusing to report crimes to the police including drug use and sexual assault to the same police while simultaneously blaming the police for allowing it to happen... forcing one's STD upon others....
By dammed, it is kind of like a tea party.
It is our sincere hope that the victims of these crimes successfully sue the living beejeezus out of the cities in which they are occurring as these same cities have abrogated their resposibilities to these lawless and degenerate Occupy villages.
