Wells Fargo Also Making Its Way Up Not Taking Shit Or Prisoners League Tables

Occupy protesters, taking aim at what they dubbed Wall Street West, were arrested after converging on Wells Fargo & Co.’s headquarters in San Francisco today in a bid to shut down the city’s Financial District. Demonstrators shouting “Give Us Our Money Back” and saying they wanted the bank to stop foreclosures chained themselves to entrances of the bank. Seven people were arrested, according to police Lieutenant Liam Frost. The arrests were made at the request of a Wells Fargo representative, Frost said. [BW, related]

    Occupy protester – you need to pay into the system to be in a position to demand money back. Judging from the time of week you've chosen (not on the weekend) to protest. I'd venture to say you're not. Or if you are (trust fund baby), you're probably paying something around…. IDK 15%?

    How dare you arrest my darling occupiers! I'm bailing them all out, tripling Wells tax rate, an then I'll have those fun loving kids over to my office where I'll show those firm tanned occupiers what an upsparkle really is!

    News flash to the OWS crowd: Wells Fargo is one of the good guys. They did not need a tax payers bailout and remember John Paulson's self requested CDO? He specifically asked that no WFC mortgages be includes since they were usually sound.

    I don't know… maybe WFC should have taken them prisoner.

    So let me get this straight, if we screw up by making bad loans then we are at fault but if you screw up your own loan we are still at fault. This is what happens when everyone gets trophies in little league.

      Actually what happened is you (we) screwed up, they (we) paid for it, and you (just you) won't own up to or acknowledge it.

    OWS NYC : OWS SF:: throwing paper airplanes : chaining yourself to entrance of bank

      OWS SF : OWS Oakland :: chaining yourself to entrance of bank : robbing people as they come out of bank

  7. Indubitably says:

    Shouldn't Wells Fargo be the ones shouting "give us our money back"?

    Wouldn't this literally be taking prisoners though?

    Seems like Wells could use a few guys riding shotgun (literally) on their stagecoach.
