NYPD Arrests Woman For Closing Her Citibank Account (VIDEO)

News


Be patient through the first 90 seconds -- haha, attention span of a gnat! -- because a remarkable little drama unfolds with protesters inside the Citibank branch communicating with protesters outside, all very reserved, collecting names and birthdates of the people about to be arrested inside. And then, brutish cops seize a woman in a business suit who is saying, "I'm a customer, I'm a customer," and showing her Citibank checkbook. Apparently she is here to close her account, and for that she is manhandled by a bunch of thug cops who should be careful where they go from now on. Anyway, closing your account is now a go-to-jail offense. UPDATE: The video was shot on a Blackberry by Meaghan Linick of Brooklyn, and her story is worth reading, too.

Interesting actions around the world today, from London to Sydney, Rome to Los Angeles, Vancouver to Vienna. It would be dumb to pretend to know exactly what it all means, and of course the appearance of the professionals -- the professional fringe right, the professional attention whores, the professional leftist protesters, and of course the professional security guards for the establishment -- muddies the waters moreso. But when you look at all these uprisings, past the loudest people and past the readymade theories and conclusions, you start to get an idea that something unique is happening, and it may just be getting started.

Ah, the usual "radicals" (cops) who have "infiltrated" the protests. "A massive demonstration" -- 200,000 on the streets in Rome. And perhaps a hundred "radicals" who pull enough violent shit to dominate the newscast.

But don't let Citibank take all the rancid glory today. JPMorgan Chase is the target of many other "consumers" in New York and across the United States today. BusinessWeek notes that JPMorgan Chase branches are swamped throughout the city with people closing their bank accounts.

Here's a short bird's eye clip of what's happening in Times Square right now. The arrests are happening swiftly now, with NYPD paddy wagon vans scooping up those leading the protests, a dozen at a time, apparently trying to cut off the serpent's head. Good luck, cops.

It's Sunday, and that means it's time for a break from the ongoing grind of awfulness out there. Let's dive into some cool, funny, thoughtful stuff to fortify ourselves before we get back to the daily madness, shall we?

After watching President Arty McDeals twist in the wind for a month, IRL politician Mitch McConnell finally decided to throw the mook a lifeline. Despite constant screaming about women with duct tape over their mouths, Trump is getting blamed for the shutdown and even his own supporters are starting to turn on him. So Ol' Yertle summoned Mike Pence and Jared Kushner to his chambers for some #RealTalk.

"Tell Donald that he has to offer something so it looks like the Democrats are the ones who won't compromise." He said. (Probably.)

"That's great," squeaked young Jared (allegedly), "Democrats are desperate. We've got them right where we want them." McConnell blinked hard.

"No, Jared," he probably said. "They're not going to take the deal. We'd have more luck getting Mexico to pay for it. The point is to offer something silly so they turn us down, and then we try to convince the public that the shutdown is Democrats' fault."

"I don't get it," said Jared (allegedly), as Mother's boy Pence furrowed his brow and sighed through his nose. (Not allegedly, it's his signature move.)

"I know," Mitch might have said. "Believe me, I know."

Which is how President Teleprompter wound up giving a MAJOR ADDRESS yesterday offering to hold off on deporting some of the Dream Act kids for a hot second if Democrats will just give him $5.7 billion for WALL and let him expel future child arrivals without a hearing. Trump himself rescinded protections for up to a million immigrants brought here as kids as soon as he took office, but he'll let some of those hostages go if Democrats will just give him cash for that WALL that Mexico is "indirectly" paying for. Heck, he'll even let 300,000 people who fled war and natural disasters and put down roots here over decades to stay a little longer, if that's what it takes. He plans to deport them all in three years anyway, or else use them for another round of hostage negotiations. (If we re-elect That Orange Idiot, spit on the ground/sign of the horns/God forbid.)
