Watch Penn State Rioters Topple a News Van; How Would the Police React If OWS Did That?

During last night's riot over the firing of Joe Paterno, some Penn State students overturned a CBS news van.

Watch the video below, then take a moment to ponder what would've happened if Occupy Wall Street protesters had been responsible for overturning that van instead (an unlikely occurrence, yes). The media is so hysterical about OWS, and there's already been so much police violence against peacefulprotesters that it's safe to say the crackdown would be extreme -- probably more extreme than the crackdown on people rioting in support of a man who abetted child sexual abuse.
