(NaturalNews) It may be a simple coincidence, or it may be the perfect embodiment of exactly why thousands of protesters across the US are hitting the streets en masse under the banner of Occupy Wall Street (OWS). Earlier this year, financial giant JPMorgan Chase & Co. donated $4.6 million to the New York Police Department (NYPD) to "strengthen security in the Big Apple" and several months later, the NYPD conveniently arrests over 700 individuals, all at one time, involved in peaceful OWS protests.

JPMorgan Chase, of course, is already the epitome of what OWS protesters are speaking out against -- the corporation was one of the first to receive taxpayer-funded federal bailout money to the tune of at least $12 billion from the Federal Reserve back in 2008. And meanwhile, millions of Americans are still unemployed or underemployed as the US economy continues its rapid descent into oblivion.

By all appearances, JPMorgan's generous donation to NYPD is no different than Monsanto's donations to political candidates in exchange for support of policies that shelter genetically-modified organisms (GMO) from public scrutiny.

It is similar to Merck & Co.'s donations to Texas Gov. Rick Perry in exchange for pushing Gardasil on young schoolgirls. It is just that, in this case, instead of taking place on the federal level with politicians, corporate bribary is now occurring at the local level with law enforcement.

The OWS protests, which officially began on September 17, 2011, in New York City, and have since spread to other US cities, have received little media attention -- that is until it was exposed that NYPD officers were pepper spraying and arresting large groups of nonviolent protesters. And even following the rapid spread of this information through alternative media sources and YouTube, the mainstream media (MSM) has been lacking, to say the least, in maintaining any semblance of adequate coverage of the events (https://www.naturalnews.com/033761_Occupy_Wal...).

Nevertheless, any corporation -- especially one like JPMorgan Chase -- that donates nearly $5 million to a police department most likely expects something in return. In this case, it is too odd a coincidence that the corporation's donation to NYPD, which represents the largest donation it has ever received, comes just before Wall Street protesters were planning to hit the streets to protest against both it and the many other corporations that have corrupted the entire US government.
