Re: “Cop Identified in Scott Olsen Incident?

Dan, your article at:…

Lifts text directly from this article:…

What I didn't see initially is that you were actually quoting the article, you just didn't say where it came from. Your blog is as hard to read as all of your comments. I think you need to ditch that fancy layout you got for blogspot. You need a proof reader and web designer or something.

I apologize for accusing you of plagiarism. Still, I'm not sure if you're just a lunatic or if you're executing an IO.

Re: “Cop Identified in Scott Olsen Incident?

@Slum Jack: "Cries for public executions?" The article mentions someone saying the officer should be fired, not hanged.

"Propagandistic rhetorical stylings" doesn't seem to describe the article either.

Your broad points I agreed with enough to "like" your post (for whatever that's worth) but maybe you were reading a completely different article?

East Bay Express: If it is within your terms of service and company policy, please give us the IP address of that user. If it can be traced to one of the public relations outfits working to influence public opinion, I want to know about it.

Re: “Cop Identified in Scott Olsen Incident?

"Daniel Kerr" commented here, and linked to an article on another blog.

That article was posted on blogspot on January 15th by a user known as "Dan K."

Title of the article: "The Attack on Scott Olsen @ Occupy Oakland — Propaganda and More?"

Much of this article is plagiarized from another article on another blog dating back to October.

The Internet is being filled with propaganda from users like Daniel Kerr.

If you're interested in this kind of thing, there's some sources you may want to check out:

Search for a report called "Blogs and Military Information Strategy" published by the Joint Special Operations University in Hurlburtfield, FL. You can actually download it from the US Air Force website at

Contractors have emerged in recent years that influence public opinion by creating false identities on the Internet on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, who will actively argue and debate with honest folks, and whose intention is to make people think what their clients want people to think. These clients only include large corporations, rich politicians, and big banks.

Go ahead and search for yourself: "newt gingrich" "twitter followers."

Or search this: "HB Gary Federal" "astroturf"

We need to figure out how to fight the growing problem of paid liars disguised as regular Internet users.
