Skip to comments.Tents banned in Los Angeles parks; Occupy activists upset
Posted on 06/10/2012 6:59:14 AM PDT by BenLurkin
The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to ban tents from city parks.
Some Occupy L.A. activists called it an assault on the Occupy Wall Street movement. They said homeless people are the ones who will be hurt by the ordinance. Occupy protesters took over a park in front of City Hall for about two months before it was dismantled by a police raid last November.

That’s funny, it doesn’t seem to bother the Tea Party ?
Maybe the Tea Party is voting, instead of camping ?
Voting inside the halls of Congress since 2010, and influencing the 10+ years of “campers” in Congress that maybe they ought to vote with the Tea Party ?
They didn't worry about the homeless until it affected them. Typical liberals who don't care about the poor unless they can use them to their advantage.
Im going to a tea party rally in Tallahassee in two hours. In the rain.
Cool, my first Tea Party was April 15th, 2010, in Ft. Worth.
But I really got started with the GOE in DC, March 17, 2007.
That was more fun. The Internet organization of like minded people works in large numbers. Something the OWS 1% do not have, large voting block numbers.
Elections have consequences.
I went to the TEA Party rally at the GA capitol on the day of the first widespread nationwide TEA Party protest on February 27, 2009. This was a little more than a week after Rick Santelli made his comments on CNBC that really got things rolling.
There were 400-500 of us on the front steps of the capitol in a cold, heavy rain. A number of legislators came out to check us out, and clearly were surprised to see this large, mad as hell crowd out there in such inclement conditions. You could just tell this was something big starting up.
“Class War Ahead”...Just as soon as we wake up.
Is questioning their patriotism still forbidden?
Wherever an Occupy infestation occurs, it brings trash, stench, and lawlessness that has to be addressed with cops in riot gear. Look at the pictures at the link.
I went to a Tea Party in Dallas. Thousands were there and it was left cleaner than when it started. Not a single arrest was needed.
The bums. Any just turn wherever they want into a crime and rat infested wasteland? Aw....
It would be interesting to compare the unrest, arrests, and general mayhem found at Occupy events, vs. those incidents at Tea Party events.
Yet the liberal line is that the Tea Party is violent, racist, etc.
