Seriously, you just can't make this stuff up.
Months ago I noted here that Occupy Portland was trying to make Justin their latest poster boy. But between the cops, Citizen Journalists and yours truly, that didn't last long. The "What About Justin?" plea for attention lasted as long as it takes to spell the word "meme." It didn't work. Cops issued a statement and their own video showing Justin being pulled to safety when a group of rowdy Occupiers, but I repeat myself, began crushing him next to newspaper boxes and light poles. Think getting pulled to safety from a mosh pit at a Phish concert and you begin to get the idea of how meritorious this lawsuit is.
Justin was seen at Occupy Portland before the cop action in a wheel chair. He held a news conference afterward --which is absolutely Occu-larious--but was seen walking, preening and squaring up on every perceived
He's asking $3 million in damages--$2 mil of which is in punitive damages --pain and suffering --for,
"Plaintiff repeatedly informed defendant officers of his back injuries and pain, and repeatedly requested medical attention. Defendant officers responded by kneeing him in the back and beating him with repeated baton strikes to the back, neck and shoulders."There's not one shred of evidence that the cops beat poor Justin, nevermind that there were cameras all around the incident and the cops were taking their own video, too.
After the lawsuit was announced this week, Citizen Journalist, Laughing at Liberals, went back to collect his Justin's Greatest Hits video. Some of the shots are before and others are after Justin was "hurt" by the cops.
Almost all the still shots I'm using in this post came from this video. Here's the $3 million man in all of his self involved glory:
when Occupiers got rowdy. Think body crush at a Led Zepplin concert, somebody saving you and you turn around and sue them. Nice.
