An Our View editorial in The Press Herald decried the violence that took place in Oakland, Calif., during that city’s Occupy Wall Street demonstrations (“Maine protesters show how it should be done,” Nov. 7).

The editorial went on about that violence and the possibility of it occurring elsewhere. The editorial ended with this: “The American people won’t put up with much more of what we saw in Oakland.”

Well, millions and millions of Americans are deciding that they will no longer “put up with” the massive violence committed daily by the super-rich and their dirty corporations and gigantic banks! Why wasn’t this even mentioned in the editorial? Is the paper itself, perhaps, too much involved in that mega-financial system?
