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.
Oh yeah, that story makes perfect sense. A woman goes down to Citibank to close her account and gets arrested for no reason. Happens every day.
Earlier in the day, two dozen protesters were arrested at a Citibank branch when they refused a manager’s request to leave. Most were detained for trespassing.
What? It was purely a coincidence that she brought along 24 of her closest fleabagger friends. Besides, she went outside, leaving them inside when the cops arrived. The reason she didn’t close her account before she left the bank was she realized she had the wrong bank. But her friends didn’t hear her so they stayed inside.
Isn’t this an implied threat?
. . . a bunch of thug cops who should be careful where they go from now on.
