Mayor Bloomberg schedules Saturday night for #OWS crackdown. [Moe Lane]

Well, that's going to be my guess:

Last week, Bloomberg implied it was only a matter of time before the city tried to put an end to the protests, but offered no hints on when that would be.

"The one thing I can tell you for sure," he said, "is if anybody in the city breaks the law we will arrest them and turn them over the district attorneys."

He said people charged the police a few nights ago, adding, "that is just not something we're going to tolerate, period."


You may have missed said police-charging - it happened the same night as Sarah Palin announcing that she wasn't running for President, and Steve Jobs passing away - but the Occupy Wall Street people certainly didn't, and they were not really what you'd call happy about the fact that the cops un-apologetically used pepper spray and police batons on the would-be Jacobins. Or that the rest of the world more or less shrugged at the news, once the meda got around to reporting it. Or that the entire thing is largely - and accurately - seen as a Democratic party establishment stalking horse.


So the Occupy Wall Street people are going to get cranky. I don't expect anything tonight, but I figure that Saturday night is going to be when tempers are going to flare. Mayor Bloomberg made it clear in the interview that he considers these protesters to be parasitical, predatory, petulant, and a lot of other epithets starting with 'P:' once that rather brutally accurate assessment percolates through to the semi-horde congregating outside, we'll be pretty close to a meltdown on the streets. Because if there's one thing that the beautiful and unique snowflakes making up the Occupy Wall Street all have in common*, it's that they hate not being treated like beautiful and unique snowflakes. Rage may not be far behind.

And no, I'm not looking forward to said meltdown. Mostly because the Occupy Wall Street temper tantrum is inconveniencing enough normal people as it is.

*Sarcasm. They're actually pretty darn homogenous.
