Organisers warn that camp is becoming haven for prisoners released from Rikers, but refuse to call police about alleged assaults
Demonstrators said they are dealing with the sexual assault of a woman internally after she was attacked by a man in her tent in the early hours of the morning.
It is the second alleged sexual assault at the camp, which organisers have warned is attracting prisoners straight out of Rikers, but have refused to call police.
The woman was in her tent at around 6am yesterday when the man burst into her tent and attacked her.

“Let us handle it.”
Doesn’t this sound familiar? Something along the lines of...mmm...Sharia Law?
Sex attack? or do they mean rape?
What happens in Obamaville stays in Obamaville.
So, the OWS freaks are practicing vigilantism? Or are they going to throw that woman who was attacked under the proverbial bus?
Somehow, something is very, very wrong with this whole scenario. They don’t want the police in there. What are they hiding?
I suspect that the OWS people aren’t what they claim to be nor what we think they are. I humbly suggest to the police that they prepare for one hell of a nasty surprise and lots of violence from these people. Just what are they hiding in their very large and quite well maintained and provisioned bags and back packs?
This may be the best possible outcome for ending OWS.
At least here in Indianapolis, the homeless shelters prohibit booze and drugs, and most are run by religious groups so you also might get a dose of that “old time religion” with your free grub and indoor cot.
As winter sets in, I can see the homeless vagrants heading to OWS for more pleasurable freebies.
Are these occupy places sovereign territory? So if someone calls their backyard “Occupy Bugtussle” they can build a meth lab, pot farm or a brothel there and forbid the police from investigating?
I want a recall on Mayor Bumbleberg. He has abdicated his responsibility.
I’m clueless about NYC. No idea if that would get traction or not. I was shocked that Tony Weiner’s replacement was thrashed in the election.
What the Fruitcake? So incest situations should thus be handled “in-house”? Perhaps Enron could have been dealt with by a corporate appointed committee??
Move on “occupiers”! The Lord of the Fleas will handle this.
Soo, if a Christian Church wants to take care of a sex crime internally, it is not ok.
But if these clowns do it, it is ok?
Don’t good, little commie women enjoy freely spreading their wealth to their needy lieberal brethren? Whats the problem?
So when were the protestors given the right to create and enforce their own laws?
If this is allowed, what prevents, say, groups of Muslims from demanding Islamic law instead of the U.S. legal system?
We should focus on demanding that every single law, zoning regulation, food preparation rule, smoking ban, fire code and permit requirement be enforced upon the protestors. After all, the authorities require the rest of us to comply.
HATE OUR BIAS MEDIA
They ran and still run with shouts of racist comments that day with Pelosi marching right through the middle and yet it is not true but rapes up and down this country at these obamavilles and silence from our corrupt media .
Of course it would help if we had some balls and guts in the GOP who could mention this and ask the bias media why they refuse to cover what really is going on and why they will not mention that commie groups, socialist groups are there
How many more rapes/sex assaults have happened that we don't hear about?
Just maybe these left-wing loons might see the truth that most of us on the right have known all along: Many of the so-called homeless are druggies, mental cases and in lots of cases, just plain amoral criminals. On that basis, though, how can they be distinguished from the Occupiers?
I’m thinking that in a real city they’d be hauling in the leaders and holding them on obstruction of justice charges. That’s what would happen if the Tea Party tried that.
If the rapist was a homeless person, OWS would have called the police. It appears they are protecting one of their own.
Wait until someone turns up dead.
Very good posts so far.
The article quotes an OWS organizer that “They’re telling people who leave prison to go to Zuccotti park” and that “There’s a lot of drugs, alcohol, assault, theft by homeless groups coming in.”
Which isn’t surprising if the organizers are offering Cash to people to stay - they will merely attract many people with nothing better to do, homeless, drug addicts and parolees among them.
So this is what we've regressed to in American society - exercising some warped, Leftist version of frontier justice in the middle of an urban cesspool, with a willing audience of sensationalist Fourth Estate types broadcasting it around the globe at the speed of light. Bread and circuses.
Ultimate proof that even OWS-types believe government spending won’t solve problems!
I’m sure the unions, who are giving them food and money - per one of them in Seattle who told me that - do not care at all whether homeless and criminals swell the ranks of the protestors.
It makes for a larger crowd for the media to swoon over, after all. And unions have never had any problem with criminals.
“The newly-released criminals are thought be attracted by the free accommodation and food, and reported alcohol and drug-fuelled parties taking place at the site.”
“There’s a lot of drugs, alcohol, assault [and] theft [by] the homeless groups coming in.”
Yes just like the Tea Party. Only different.
If, as you say, he has abdicated his *responsibility* as Mayor of NYC, then it follows that he has likewise abdicated his *position* as Mayor of NYC. Thus, I refuse to acknowledge him as Mayor, and declare, as a member of that august body, known as "We the People" that the position of Mayor of NYC is hereby vacant...
When decent people get together and vote, they can even defeat Weiner’s “replacement” and that is what happened. Bloomberg needs to be forced out. His inaction on Zuccotti Park is putting many people in danger. He is a creep and a coward.
Never voted for the man and even refused to sign a petition to put him on the ballot. I get to say, “I told you so” to all the people whom he bought off. Having said that, he has to be forced to step down as he had abdicated his position. His primary responsibility is to protect us and he has failed at that in spades.
“Fellow protesters surrounded the man and shone flashlights in his face...
She said that fellow protesters were ‘yelling at him to leave,’ shouting ‘pervert, pervert, get the f**k out.’”
I’m sure that’ll teach him. /s
