Pick on the little people

So since I'm trying not to dwell upon the OWS movement too much, I figured it would be interesting to start taking a closer look at, what I believe to be, is a more and more prevalent trend in American society today.... Picking on the little people. From cops getting out of line and writing bogus citations for miniscule offenses, to new fees that we have to pay, and everything else in between,  it's pretty easy to see how the power structure here in the US (and the rest of the world) views the masses.

In my own way, this will be my contribution to the OWS movement. Each one of these examples offers evidence as to what the power structure in this country is really all about.... Keeping you timid, afraid, and beaten down, all while they continue to line their own pockets. Instead, I say let these examples enrage you... They certainly do me... And I promise, there will be many, many more to come.
