We'll say this: it certainly hasn't been any picnic since the OWS (Obamaville's Whining Squatters) set up their encampments around the country. All that sexual assaulting, STD spreading, class warfare messaging and police brutality were due to take their toll.

Most of the roughly 300 Occupy L.A. protesters were released from jail by Friday evening, with some immediately speaking out on the police raid that cleared their camp.

One speaker suggested that some of those arrested might need therapy. Several said they felt traumatized after witnessing police use nonlethal force and being forced to wait for hours in zip-tie handcuffs. Some displayed cuts on their wrists from the handcuffs. Others complained that they were forced to urinate in bags on the bus as they were transported to jails.

One speaker urged others to document any complaints. "Make note of every single violation of human rights," she told those assembled.

It is duly noted that these folks who have been struggled against by what they feel is an over-aggressive government that has used force and coersion to achieve its ends wants that same government to use force and coersion to achieve OWS' ends of income and wealth re-distribution.

Good to know.
