Wall Street: you’re a bunch of ignorant idiots — and your kids are stupid too.

Officer James W. Carnell, a veteran of the Boston PD and the managing editor for Pax Centurion, has penned a scathing op-ed in the latest issue of the official newspaper of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association. Responding to a letter to the editor sent in from a world-renowned college professor and activist, Carnell calls out the Occupy Wall Street movement and its protesters for seemingly being responsible for everything that is wrong with the country today.

Carnell’s crusade against Occupy took a harsh turn earlier this year when the officer opined in the paper’s January/February 2012 edition that the protesters demonstrating against corporate greed in the heart of Boston were “deranged rich kids and aging hippies” who led “stupid marches through downtown,” took drugs, stole from others and engaged in sex with “stupid college girls who offered themselves willingly to the poor and downtrodden victims of oppression”

His sentiments did not sit well with protesters.

“I was horrified, disgusted and utterly consumed with the things you had to say about Occupy Boston,” teacher Bil Lewis wrote Carnell in a letter that is published in the most recent edition of the newspaper.“I don’t see how you could say what you said if you spent any time at Dewey Square,” Lewis continues, referring to the central space occupied by demonstrators until the police department waged a forced evacuation late last year. “I spoke with officers regularly and I got a lot of support. Most of them understood why we were there, even if they didn’t agree with our tactics.”
“As a teacher, I don’t get to choose my students, but I have to do my best for them, even the ones I don’t like,” Lewis adds. “I cannot believe that a Boston Police officer would actually so discount the Constitution, so disrespect his fellow citizens and so blindly worship authority.”
