Posted on 11/08/2011 7:05:19 AM PST by Red Badger
A pair of Southland street cart vendors who were forced to shut down their businesses after Occupy protesters vandalized their carts are hoping to get some help from local residents.
KNX 1070′s Tom Reopelle reports a fundraiser in the Gas Lamp district in San Diego on Monday night is aimed at helping two vendors get back on their feet.
The coffee and hot dog carts were located in Civic Center Plaza, the same location as the Occupy San Diego protesters.
That group first settled in to the plaza Oct. 7 and set up a tent city which has since twice been taken down by police.
Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.
And according to one city councilman, bodily fluids were used in the attacks.
Both carts have had items stolen, have had their covers vandalized with markings and graffiti, as well as one of the carts had urine and blood splattered on it, said Councilman Carl DeMaio.
The damages will likely require at least a complete cleaning if not a replacement of the cart covers, DeMaio said.
In addition to the attacks, the vendors also said they recently received death threats.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to help the two business owners.
After a relatively peaceful start, the Occupy movement has sparked violent clashes with police in Oakland and recently saw protesters push an elderly woman down a flight of stairs in D.C.
DO NOT FEED THE BEARS!
It’s time for the venders to pack heat.
However, I know that even if a vender responded properly, the lib press and vapid, sleezy democrat politicans who currently infect that state would come to the defense of the worthless toad protestor.
When will these fools do something useful and march on the TSA checkpoints
Sort of like when you go to the national parks. You are warned not to feed the animals for just this same reason. When you stop, they can get violent
Sorry to say this in this case:
“Stupid is what stupid does.”
Thanks! I needed a chuckle this morning. I’m sure the TSA would give out free gropes.
Are cart vendors now lumped with “big business”?
When these people are caught they should be tied to the ol’ whipping post and beaten to within an inch of their lives.
“..said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators..”
Once you begin an entitlement, it cannot be rescinded.
EVER! They have a RIGHT to your labor and property!
Since the MSM tells us that the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street are similar movements..............
Can we find the corresponding incidents at Tea Party events, in which blood and urine were used in anger as weapons?????
To somebody with ‘NO BUSINESS’, anybody WITH a business is ‘BIG BUSINESS’.........
In K A L I F O R N I A ? ? ? ? ...........
These cart vendors have learned a valuable lesson.
Do not feed wild animals...........
This is a small vignette of what is happening on a national and international scale.
The real working people of the world have supported the lazy mouth breathers for so long, they now think they are entitled to everything. When the free ride ends, they get angry and riot, destroying the very system that had supported them.
It has bred for generations slothful societal parasites that have infected the body of humanity.
Now the parasites have become an infestation that threatens the life of civilization itself..........
These folks were expecting something different from Obama’s Free Shit Army of Occupation? Are they that clueless?
” Obamas Free Shit Army of Occupation”
Best description I’ve seen yet of OWS.
Now urine trouble.
Well, I will admit that when I was at a TEA party event, I was certainly pissed at what government is doing, and there might have been blood in my eye at the time, but that is about as close as it got........
