Aw: Some Occupy L.A. Arrestees Feel They Need Therapy Due to Trauma

They say they need therapy, and I couldn’t agree more. Who says we all can’t find common ground on certain issues?

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.

In defense of the authorities, they made the Occupiers go to the bathroom in bags because they couldn’t immediately find a cop car for them to s*#t on.

Perhaps the funniest part is the guy complaining that they were kept from showering and tooth brushes for three days. Maybe he was pissed because they were denied their right to wait much longer than that between showers and tooth brushing.
