For me, the movements through Occupy represent a mass consciousness aimed at righting wrongs, its not just about the co-opting. Millions of people are now more aware we have to be the change, and they are making a new choice to act in the way they know best. With that comes change; its about where you are operating from within that creates the change through your actions. R3VOLution!
The decision that Assistant District Attorney Robert Kidd and I reached today was a decision that certainly took into consideration the cost to the taxpayers in Somerset, but was also made with our concerns for their children, and the children of Bristol County and beyond in mind.Climate change is one of the gravest crises our planet has ever faced. In my humble opinion, the political leadership on this issue has been gravely lacking. I am heartened that we were able to forge an agreement that both parties were pleased with and that appeared to satisfy the police and those here in sympathy with the individuals who were charged.I am also extremely pleased that we were able to reach an agreement that symbolizes our commitment at the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office to take a leadership role on this issue.
