    A couple of points...

    The police arrested the people - not Citibank. I'm surprised that you don't know the difference being a retire policeman and all.

    Only one person claimed to be a Citibank customer.

    Early in the video someone says "The plan is to get arrested". They got what they wanted.

    Based on what is shown Citibank may be in for a serious lawsuit. Also what we saw was Nazi style police activity and many who are sons and daughters of some here who are in law enforcement would do the same things as we are seeing the downfall of our freedoms and rights from Nazi minded officials. In the coming months this will grow as we see our nation crumbling around us as Americans will be murdered in the streets by the government.

    And if it turns out that they weren't Citibank customers but were merely entering enmass into a private building with the intent of disrupting a legal business - and in the process denying service to actual Citibank customers?

    Will you conclusion be different than what you wrote above?

    Is there a report of this anywhere else. This source is spurious at best.

    I believe this is exactly what happened. A group of 25 protesters walked into the Citibank building. I believe one or two actually had accounts. They were asked to leave. They refused. They were arrested. No story.

    You know, it's interesting. I'm looking at ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN and I can't find anything about it. I KNOW it was on the news here. Let me check a few more sites...

    It appears that so far, they were all customers trying to close their accounts. Withdraw THEIR money, close THEIR accounts and the bank appears to be claiming that was the disruption?

    The video is quite clear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMtersAIft4

    Showing a woman, looking very much like an average, middle class citizen, with bank slips in her hand stating she is a customer, showing the papers as proof, then being grabbed from behind and pulled away and then surrounded by police officers as if she is a common criminal. My first thought was "they must have this bank in other countries, this can't be the United States." But it was. What on earth?!

    Good grief. Bring our troops home please, we need them to protect us right here in our own country! We're being taken over by communists on our own soil.
    But wait, they have to follow government orders. Where does that leave us?
    So we've spent all this time and effort and lost so many of our own in other countries so they don't have to live under oppressive governments. Looks like we're reaching a point where we may need to call on an outside country to come do the same for us.
    That is so weird and disturbing.

    I saw the video and what you also see there is the issues going on inside where the protesters had already gone into the bank. Many were just standing around and not all of them were customers from what I understand. Yes, that one woman wanted to enter and was arrested but it was also in the middle of an incident. Her arrest doesn't stand alone.

    First they wanted this to happen. They were protesting and looking to be a victim. Second The protesters has already told to disperse and they refused. So everyone can fall prey to this staged event but we should all be far less gullible. I mean good grief!

    Gina it does look bad from the video, but our troops will do the same thing and worse in the near future. I am afraid that Americans have a false sense of security when we are in grave danger from our own government and it took off with George Bush and the Gestapo he set up called home land security.

    You could be correct, but without more evidence I can say no more as I do not believe either one at this point.

    FAR as I know, General McArthur was the only American military leader to move American tanks against American citizens on American soil. It will be interesting if the 1% tries to move troops against Americans in the lower 48.

    I don't know if American police officers and the National Guard will fire on their own neighbors. Some say East Coast troops will be brought to the West Coast and vice versa.
