    Did Rosa Parks take a dump on the seat in the bus ...... who knew !!!!!

    Perhaps it should be evenly apportioned among all of those who were arrested or who can be identified in the surveillance videos.

    This has been mentioned before...I would think there would be problems with this possible solution.

    1. Would this be some kind of class action lawsuit? Or would they take each individual person to court? How much would such litigation cost the city?

    2. Does the city have to power to bill a person being arrested for the cost of that arrest? Can the city make that person pay for costs that are not related to the arrest?


    I really don't think the city will be able to get a dime out of anyone related to the protesters. I also think they know this.

    You (and the other) argueing this are simply being dishonest. The arguement was you need to do what you are told when police officers tell you what to do. Not that you need to do it when the protest is agreeable.

    It has nothing to do with the two being comparable. You either believe you do what the police tell you to do or you don't.

    If the police officers are enforcing a statute, then you do need to do what they say, or they will escalate the issue, to include physically subduing you if need be.

    The comparison to Ms Parks was begun here by idiots. Not Conservatives

    Of course there would be problems. But it would be very satisfying nonetheless.

    Take them all to court. Every one of them. Let's have some real justice against the occupiers. Bankrupt them. Let them pay the costs resulting from their damage.

    You would bankrupt the city first. You cannot successfully sue someone with damage that you cannot prove they did. Simply being arrrested for violating park curfew is not the same as causing damage in the park. the burden of proof would be on the city.

    Now if there is a video of someone taking a dump on the bus, or a video of someone breaking something, hell yes charge them. But in this case, the city simply will not win. It will only cost the city even more money and most likely extra if there is a countersuit against the city. Good luck.

    The comparison was made because YOU claimed that people should just listen to the cops. That logic applies to Rosa Parks as well. The only thing idiotic, is your hypocrisy.
