A trio of Occupy livestreamers were reportedly pulled over by Chicago police. They practically wet their pants, claimed to have been “raided,” and stoked conspiracy theories about things being “planted” in their apartment. In the end, though, one flustered member of the group acknowledged that they were fine and were proceeding to upload their agitprop to the Internet (using evil corporate products, of course.)
Watch how the story gets embellished:
Update 1:29am : On their livestream, one of the Occupiers tells @OccupyLA that the apartment they were staying at was not raided with guns drawn, but “our vehicle was.” Occupiers suggest to each other that the police stopped them in order to deprive them of sleep so they don’t protest tomorrow…and to send them into chaos:
The narcissism. It burns.
After the car stop, the livestreamers are now driving around aimlessly. The driver tells Occupier viewers on his livestream: “I don’t know where I’m going.”
Here’s a screencap of one of the freakout yoots. Note the cover on one of the phones:
Ain’t that the truth.
