The following comes from a May 4 story of Catholic News Agency.
Bricks and other projectiles were thrown at police and bystanders during the Occupy San Francisco movement’s second attempt to take over property owned by the Catholic Church on May 1.
“One of the protesters threw bricks, and some metal objects – like metal bars – down on the crowd gathered there, at the police and others. I think he was aiming at the police,” said George Wesolek, director of communications for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
“He missed a policeman, who ducked, and it hit one of the Occupy protesters who fell to the ground, was injured, and was bleeding,” Wesolek told CNA on May 3.
Police arrested the suspect, who is expected to be charged with felony aggravated assault. Another man, who threw pipes from a rooftop adjacent to the Church property, remains at large according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Tuesday’s violence took place during the celebration of International Workers’ Day, or “May Day.” As Wesolek explained, a group of agitators associated with the “Occupy SF” movement spent the labor holiday breaking into a Church-owned building they had previously attempted to seize on April 1….
Wesolek said Tuesday’s attempt to seize the property was “very similar” to the April occupation, “except I think this was more of a spontaneous kind of thing.”
“They were roaming the streets, and according to some of the protesters, just decided spontaneously to break in. They cut the fence that we had put up around the property, and jimmied some of the doors, broke some of the windows, and got into the building.”
“Last time it seemed very planned. This time it did not seem that way, (but) more a part of the general mayhem of the May 1 event.”

Thank you St. Joseph for being a model of Obedience and a model for husbands to emulate. +JMJ+

They have goals nobody talks about much in the media, because the media is dominated by leftists as well. There are many reasons to be suspicious of the left-leaning media and politicians. Unfortunately, the publicly educated lack, for the most part, the critical thinking skills needed to discern that there is a pettern involved in all this.

Posted Monday, May 07, 2012 7:03 PM By Bud A riot squad shold arrive, warn very loudly that tear gas and tasers, firehoses and anything it takes to move them out will be used. They are anarchists and should be treated as such! I doubt there is one of them that would act alone and not be a coward………..collective cowardism
Posted Monday, May 07, 2012 7:48 PM By Doc Mugwump Welcome to the US of Anarchy… this is what fills in the gap when you take God out of the public debate. Not only do people turn into animals; but then they want to destroy the places of worship of those who still maintain some semblence of faith. I have a sense that these people are more like the puppets on the street level while behind the scenes is a great movement of wealthy, organized masonice anarchy.
