Vitale, Alex S. Rule of law vs. the forces of order. Occupy Wall Street. 2011 Nov 2. Available from: http://www.occupywallst.org/article/rule-law-vs-forces-order/. Accessed 2011 Nov 25. Archived by WebCite at http://www.webcitation.org/63SzempjQ.

Vitale describes the trend toward increasingly repressive methods of policing in the USA after the massive protests against the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Seattle in 1999. Vitale argues that the rule of law, and specifically the right to protest, are being undermined by an obsession with maintaining order at all costs.
