Bummer: Some LA Occupiers Feel Traumatized, May Seek Therapy

This isn’t quite as fun as the number of liberals who needed therapy for PEST (post election selection trauma) after Bush beat Waffles Kerry in the 2004 election, what with all the ones who couldn’t get out of bed for days, couldn’t work, and/or went to see professional mental health workers who were just as depressed as themselves, but, it is certainly amusing (via Jammie Wearing Fools)

(LA Times) 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.

These are the people that are going to change the world? They can’t even witness police arresting other filth infused squatters without becoming emotional to the point they need therapy. Jammie Wearing Fool uses a naughty word to describe them.

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

For what, peeing in a bag like other criminals are forced to, instead of the usual bottles of hoity toity water they were used to?
