    So then you would have to agree that all those people in Wisconsin that obstructed City Hall was in violation of that type of city ordinance? How about the Tea Party Protesters? MLK Protesters? Should all of them have been arrested, charged, and sued?

    What rights were violated? Were people restricted from entering city hall? That is the only possible right that could have been violated. Do you have proof of this?

    The only thing he cares about is that it OWS so what ever piddly ordinance there is he will use even if it spitting on the sidewalk.

    Now if the damage to the lawn and the fountain was done maliciously then yes someone should be charged for destruction of property as that is not a peaceful act. However if it was done on accident or through general use then it should not be charged to anyone but the taxpayers. And those alone would not cost that much. Hell, I could do it for under $5k.
    I think that the Mayor is demonstrating because the blow-back from not cracking down on the Occutards is becoming a political liability. Without a doubt, Democrat Mayors across the land made complete hypocritical jackasses of themselves in support of this massive astro-turf movement.

    Let's see who the first "Occupy-endorsed" candidate is in 2012 ? Any candidate worth a crap will treat such as the kiss of death. In the menatime, there will be hundreds of Tea-Party backed candidates. And they will do well.

    Watch and learn liberals. Watch and learn ....... again.

You're just one more little worker ant in this ant colony we call the US.

    And it ain't close.

    Ah I see, so a protest is only valid when you agree with it? If you don't agree with a protest then it is perfectly acceptable to sue and charge them with any ole' thing in order to shut them up?

    Is being or becoming a candidate for some office or a politician in general now required for the validity of a movement or to be able to protest?

    Seriously, you're starting to go off the deepend.

    To me, that is the only question.

    Before suing someone for millions of dollars, you've got to have someone to sue. The Occupy movement has no leaders and no central organization. There's no one to sue.

    I think LA is just trying to muddy the waters because they have these costs that are going to affect the availability of services to the citizens. They want to make it look like they are trying to get the money back somehow...kind of a "cya" thing. There's no way they'll get the money...the citizens of LA will suffer...the politicians face taking the blame.

    That's all there is to it.
