OWS protest spawn death, disease and plague throughout the country

Posted on: November 14, 2011

This is a shocking headline but it is true. Finally, the media is reporting the truth about these protesters. According to a recent article on Hot Air, the OWS protests nationwide have been responsible for at least 232 incidents of violence, vandalism or other outrageous behavior.

There has been violence in Oakland, CA, Denver, CO, and Portland, OR where now police and state patrol officers were injured by  protesters. Then there is contagious disease such as TB in Atlanta, suicide in Vermont, and even arson in Ft. Collins, CO. An Occupy Fort Collins Member was arrested for arson which caused $10 Million in damage.

In Oakland, CA the mayor has now called for shutting down the camp. The risks are too great he says and “camping” is a tactic, not a solution. The violence came a day after a group of Oakland city and business leaders held a news conference demanding the removal of the encampment, saying it has hurt downtown businesses and has continued to pose safety concerns.

Some New York City residents are just sick and tired of the Wall Street Occupiers — and would prefer they pack up their Zuccotti Park tent city and head on home.

Finally, downtown residents and business owners are organizing a protest of the protest after two months of Lower Manhattan being occupied by the Wall Street demonstration. They are angry over all-day drumming, people urinating and defecating on the streets and verbal attacks from protesters and organizers. They are planning a rally at City Hall Monday to send officials a message.

Businesses have complained for weeks that the encampment is causing them to lose money, although a few have made money off the protests, as donors from all over the country have sent food from nearby restaurants to the movement.

Furthermore, as BigGovernment’s John Nolte points out, the protest must also bear partial responsibility for collateral damage. The Occupy movement drains law enforcement resources. Just as of mid-to-late October, shootings in NYC were way up — and no doubt the diminished police presence outside of Zuccotti Park contributed to that. The protests are a public safety issue — and Bloomberg would be justified if he took a strong position against the flagship protest that spearheaded the lawlessness nationwide.

I’m all for protesting but not occupying. It serves no purpose and the cost is high. I also don’t buy that there are a “few” people who are causing the problems. These protesters just don’t get it. They are the magnet drawing these “few” people – anarchists,  communists, and even now labor unions – to participate and escalate the problem.

Is this the message they want the nation to hear? I say go home occupiers we’ve got your message and now it’s time to let it go.

“There has been violence in Oakland, CA, Denver, CO, and Portland, OR where now police and state patrol officers were injured by protesters.”

This is the result of the progressives gelding our politicians and consequently our police. It’s time for mass arrests by force. Clean up these scum.
