175 Disobedient Occupy Chicago Protesters Arrested For not Leaving Grant Park & Breaking City Ordinance


Sure they are just like the Tea Party, these folks have no respect for authority or the laws.

175 Occupy Chicago protesters were arrested in Chicago, IL for not abiding by city ordinances. They were previously warned by police to leave the park and that they were violating municipal code. Most of the arrests were peaceful, although many protesters shouted that the police “were the instruments of the one percent.” What respect of authority from the Obama supported “Occupy” protesters.

Chicago police arrested about 175 Occupy Chicago protestors in Congress Plaza just after 1 a.m. Sunday, about 90 minutes after police issued their first warning that the group was violating municipal code.

Police completed the last arrests and cleared the plaza of protesters at 3:30 am, more than two hours after arrests began.

The protesters will likely be cited with municipal violations and face fines, police said.

Barack Obama, the Community Agitator in Chief better hope the “Occupy” protest crowd in the US do not become like their follow European brethren. If the protests turn violent like in Europe, Obama and the Democrats will have even bigger hell to pay in the 2012 elections than they already face.

      I am wondering what would happen if Tamikosmom were to stand in the middle of a major downtown street tying up traffic … creating chaos … while waving a placard protesting identifying what she considered an injustice?

      Would this disruption be tolerated by LE or … would Tamikosmom be hauled off in a paddy wagon?

      Why is civil disobedience tolerated by the masses and not individuals?

      Why is civil disobedience tolerated at all by those sworn to uphold the law and protect law-abiding citizens desperatly attempting to navigate to respective destinatins?

      Peaceful protest are one thing but … what is spreading throughout the democractic free world at this point in time is outright anarchy and … there is no legal deterrent to cease.


      Occupy Vancouver protest stretches into Sunday The Vancouver Sun
      October 16, 2011 11:26 AM

      Vancouver police department spokeswoman Const. Jana McGuinness said at its mid-day height the crowd numbered up to 4,000 people.

      “It grew fairly quickly around lunchtime from a few hundred to a few thousand,” McGuinness said. “No problems though, it’s largely families and a diverse crowd.”

      The march through the downtown core at times mimicked the leaderless, loosely-organized Occupy Vancouver organizing group, with the procession splintering into separate marches, tying up traffic.

      “We’ve had more than half a dozen marches and they’re often happening at the same time in different locations,” said McGuinness. “We know it caused some disruption for motorists and we’re grateful for their patience as this all takes place today.

      How much did it cost the City of Chicago to clean up after this bunch of rowdies?

      These are mostly people who have chosen to live off the sweat of others and now they are complaining because they don’t have jobs. Some are college graduates with worthless degrees in some form of social studies.

      The American business community has zero positions for those with a college degree that ends with the word studies. Such a degree is aimed at those who are not able to get a degree in the normal discplines of education.

      It amazes me how people believe what is feed through the Media..
      How many of you have Talked to someone at LaSalle and Jackson.
      Sure their message is jumbled, but what would you expect from abunch of people who have been brought together by curcumstance.
      Actually, their message is pretty clear “Get the money and influence OUT of government.
      While you make comments about the Occupy protestors, keep in mind, that HR87 is on the floor of Congress to Repeal the Dobb – Franks Regulation Bill.
      Or purhaps you’re interested in the “National Popular Vote Compact” that is presently making it’s way across America to Change the way the Electorial Votes will be awarded. By the way, it’s already passed Illinois..
      I’m sure All of you feel that the present System of Puppet Masters’ are fine..
      But, what do you care, the Two Party system works great for you..
      No matter whos’ puppet he/she is.
      GOD, bless America
      and, ALL of you,
      no matter how OUT of Touch you are.
      WAKE-up, it’s not a dream
      Also, I do understand your displeasure with some of the protestors, and these things are being Dealt with

      One more thing.
      The Occupy Movement is NOT in line with Obama (aka Barry Sorotoro),
      Nor do WE want to be.
      Quit passing judgement.
      I thought this was America,
      A place of diversity.
      Once again,
      Don’t believe the Hype…
