Biting the Hand That Feeds: Occupy Protestors Close Apple Store on Black Friday

The video above shows Occupy Oakland protestors accosting a customer trying to enter the Apple Store in San Francisco on Black Friday.

So much for the movement being a whole new paradigm — a whole new paradigm in thuggery, perhaps.

    The ironic thing is that the guy leaving the store empty-handed is in effect less guilty of the human rights violations that the protesters are, since they were the ones who actually bought iPhones and iPads.

    Does this mean all the Occupy protestors are going to stop using handheld devices now and give them all back to Apple?

    I honestly don’t know how I’d react if a bunch of kids (age notwithstanding, the one commenter was correct in his assertion that they were acting like children) tried to physically bar me from somewhere I wanted to go.

    I imagine I’d lose patience with it pretty quickly though.

    • I would probably get arrested. I don’t have patience for that crap either. I think somebody pulled that crap on me in high school gym class when we were playing baseball or something. On the next at bat, I was on third base, the batter hit a single, and I ran through the guy who pushed me around. On the way to home plate, I knocked him on his ass. He didn’t mess with me ever again.
