My 2 Cents: Patience Wearing Thin With 'Occupy' Movement

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY -- When it first started it was a curious little sideshow, but the "Occupy" protests are growing into something uglier. And if there was no cohesive message before, there seems to be one developing.

We're mad, we're discontent with our lot, and we're going to throw temper tantrum until someone gives us what we want.

I have zero patience for what happened out in Oakland yesterday, have you seen the video?

Protesters moved into a vacant building. Oakland police say the protesters set several fires and threw rocks bottles and flaming objects at the police officers who responded to the scene.

You start endangering officers, and I don't care what your message is, you need to go to jail.

I don't think this is what most of the protesters wanted, but it seemed inevitable.

I'm glad nothing like that has happened here.

We had a few protesters breaking the curfew in Tulsa but that was about it.

Trust me, if what happened in Oakland spreads, the public's tolerance of these protests will quickly disappear.
