A woman in her 20’s was found dead in a tent at the Vancouver Occupy campsite of a drug overdose this past Saturday. To his credit, the Mayor Gregor Robertson directed the city manager to clear the park.
Lauren Gill, an organizer at the camp said the girl’s death proves the need for more services for addicts in the city. Who’s a good socialist? That’s always the answer, isn’t it. More government.
Gil described her as “a bright, energetic, beautiful, kind, passionate, artistic youth” and said she’d known her for several years. I thought she was a drug addict?
After the incident reporters began to be roughed up & one cameraman was knocked to the ground.
Sounds just like a Tea Party event.
Saturday night saw another incident at the D.C. Occupy event.
Hundreds of Occupiers linked arms to block city streets.
A family of three protesters were hit by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was not charged. The three, however, were ticketed.
According to 2 witnesses, the accident was unavoidable. The family had a different account.
Lt. Christopher Micciche of the D.C. police said the witnesses told police the 3 jumped in front of the vehicle & one apparently leaped onto the hood.
I, for one, would never believe the fuzz. Next weekend I think I’ll take my kids downtown & show them how to jump in front of moving vehicles. It’s those memories that last a lifetime.
Zuccotti Park, New Yory City
Eminent Domain strikes the park campsite. Organizers are ordering individual tents be removed in some areas and replaced with larger community tents. These larger tents will have access restricted to only certain people. That’s discrimination!
After more than a few rapes & sexual assaults have occurred at the site, the folks in charge have decided to raise a female-only tent.
That sparked talks of separate tents for homosexuals, transgenders, married folks, etc. So every group will eventually have their own tent.
This does not sound like the all tolerent, all inclusive community I thought it would be (laugh). It’s sounds like forced segregation. It sounds like, dare I say it, the 1%. Walling off good peaceloving people. Telling them they can’t come in here. Mr. Organizer, Tear Down This Wall!
Here’s thanks for ya.
The Owners of a pair of Hot Dog vending carts had to close up at their Civic Center Plaza location.
The Occupy protestors gave thanks to the vendors for their generosity in providing free food & coffee. How, you say? By splattering the carts with blood & urine.
The owner of the carts initially gave away food & drinks but apparently could not continue to do so forever. That’s when things got ugly. I guess free food & drink is now a right.
They also stole items & spray painted graffiti on the carts.
The owner of the carts said she may not be able to clean them sufficiently & they may have to be replaced. A good new cart costs in excess of $2000.00, not to mention the 2 operators that are now unemployed.
What’s not to like about this bunch?
