There's no convincing Occupy Wall Street that the cops are there to protect them.So the police are supposed to be there to help this anarchist mob? What planet does this idiot live on? Haven't these people claimed their constructing their own self-sustaining society where sexual assaults are the norm? Why would they need help from The Man?
As Mayor Bloomberg accused the protesters Thursday of endangering all New Yorkers by failing to report crimes, Lauren DiGioia was marching around with a sign saying "I was more victimized by the NYPD who handled my sexual assault case than I was by the assaulter."
DiGioia, 26, of Clifton, N.J., woke up in the wee hours of Oct. 8 - her first night at Zuccotti Park - to find a drunken man slipping a hand under her sweatshirt, kissing her head and trying to flip her over.
She pushed him away and, in the morning, he was gone.
DiGioia didn't report the incident until two days later, when she learned 27-year-old Dave Park of Connecticut was still lurking and had him arrested.
She said police kept her waiting for hours, and told her it was her fault for sleeping outside.
"I'm a perfect example of somebody who went through the process. I followed all the steps of the law, and I felt victimized by it. I felt like I was a criminal, too," DiGioia said.
"Most of us feel the police are not here to help us at all. They are getting paid to baby-sit," she said. "I don't blame women for not wanting to come forward."
The pusillanimous pipsqueak they call the mayor is finally starting to catch on.
"Instead of calling the police, they form a circle around the perpetrator, chastise him or her and chase him or her out into the rest of the city - to do who knows what to who knows whom," Bloomberg said.
"It is despicable," he said. "I think it is outrageous and it really allows the criminal to strike again making all of us less safe."
