The mayor of Oakland has shown the proper way to deal with the Occupy Crowd. Use tear gas and arrest them and dismantle camps. Occupations are not free speech they are thefts of public spaces by communists, anarchists and Jooooo haters.
Free speech is not to be confused with stealing public spaces and assaulting the populace with poor hygiene. Given the provocation of the public by the protesters it is amazing that the public that is getting fed up is so restrained. At this point most of us are hoping for a nice cold snap and nasty weather. The odds of serious health outbreaks given the poor sanitation are quite real.
It is time for this farce to end.
