Both extremes are crazy.
This is true and I agree. However, Given that the Occupy-types are largely 20-somethings, aka young-and-stupid, and they do typical whippy-dippy-hippie crap when it's not some really dumbass kid shitting on cop cars, I'm much less concerned about them than I am about the Tea Party old-and-stupid-and-crazy crowd who are PROUD! of their gun collections and wear them in armed protests.
One group I expect to possibly riot like college kids do and overturn some cars, set some couches on fire in the streets, smash a few windows, and crap like that, then get bored and go home, if they're not all arrested. You know, some shouts of "FUCK THE PIGS", throw some rocks at the cops, the cops whip out the tear gas and rubber bullets, the kids decide it's no fun anymore and disperse.
The other group, what with the whole "ooga booga Obama is coming for your guns! He's going to take you away in refitted boxcars to FEMA re-education camps" beliefs they have (spoon-fed to them by right-wing TV, talk radio, and websites), I expect to show up armed, which will cause the cops to have to show up in full-on riot gear and the SWAT teams to be there as well, and it's only going to go bad from there. The minute the cop-in-charge picks up the megaphone and yells "PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS!", some brainwashed Teabilly asshole, who might have had one too many, is gonna shout "FUCK YOU!" and raise his weapon. That'll be the start...
