    Richmond Tea Party Group Sues the City

    Interesting scenario. What do you think?

    Richmond Tea Party Sues City: Charge #Occupy Protesters Or Refund $10,000 For Rallies at Plaza | The Gateway Pundit

    The Richmond Tea Party is demanding a refund from the city for $10,000 it spent on for permits, portable toilets, police presence and emergency personnel for three rallies held at same plaza where the Occupy Richmond squatters set up their camp.
    The Republic reported:

    The Richmond tea party is demanding a refund of about $10,000 from the city, claiming it unfairly charged them for rallies while allowing the Occupy protesters to use the same space for several weeks for free.
    The political organization is sending the city an invoice for the charges incurred for three rallies held in Kanawha Plaza over the past three years. The Occupy protesters have been camped in the plaza since Oct. 15.
    Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens says itís not fair that her group had to pay fees for permits, portable toilets, police presence and emergency personnel. The group also had to purchase a $1 million insurance policy.

    That's friggin' hillarious!

    But, hey, we all know the law doesn't apply to the Libbos. So, they may not have a case.

    The tea party is an organization, the occupy protesters not necessarily.

    That'll teach them not to exercise their right to peaceful assembly.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Can you show us in the Richmond city ordinance where that makes a damn bit of difference?

    One thing for sure, the OWS'ers aren't an orginization. They're a cluster ****.

    I think this shows exactly what is important to Conservatives these days. Not lower spending, or smaller government -- poking liberals with sticks. It's why when they win elections, none of the things they say are important to them actually happen.

    That's really what you got out of this?

    It sounds to me like they just want things to be fair.

    the OWS is turning out to be a lot like wall street.

    playing with taxpayer money likes it's their own, breaking laws with no accountability, polluting while others clean their mess, and sucking up resources they had no hand in creating.

    I would sue to get my permit fees back as well.... if the city is going to allow unrestricted protests for one group, they need to allow it for all groups... period.


    of course, the proper, responsible , way to handle this is to require the OWS to pay for the necessary permits and facilities required by law..... not that I believe any of them will pay, but it's still the right thing to do.
