Rubber bullets, tasers, truncheons, and high-pressure water cannons.

Let’s see how brave the Leftists really are.

Unfortunately the mayor of Boston is Tom Menino...
not sure if it will come to that. He did finally see the light and set rules against no permanent structures, etc.
(weather-resistant big tent not allowed in). He’s hoping they leave by attrition—weather or other reasons having them
slowly drift away. No “sweep them out”. Yet...

Send the freeloaders over to the Kerry or Kennedy compound. Plenty of space and restrooms.

Occupy Boston protester tweets their eviction from Dewey Square

Updated: Wednesday, 07 Dec 2011, 4:12 PM EST
Published : Wednesday, 07 Dec 2011, 4:04 PM EST

BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - An Occupy Boston protester has tweeted that the City of Boston has lifted the restraining order and thus, the group will be forced to vacate Dewey Square.

The Occupy Boston movement was in court Dec. 1 to request a permanent restraining order that would bar police from removing them without notice. The judge said she expected to rule by Dec. 15.

Since then, Boston Police have made multiple arrests and have had several confrontations at the encampment and the surrounding area.

The protesters have been encamped in Dewey Square since Sept. 30. The movement was modeled after the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York, which spawned similar protests around the country decrying economic inequality, corporate greed and power of lobbyists.

Is it possible there is a judge with integrity and in Boston too?

Yes but maybe not for long. Unfortunately the mayor seems to be on their site but even he is starting to lose his
patience.

Looks like a lot of Occupy moving out today.

It is good to see the children will be home for Christmas.

Note: just because they have power to evict doesn’t mean they will do so, at least not right away. From Boston’s Ch 4:

BOSTON (CBS) – A judge lifted a restraining order on Wednesday that could have prevented the city of Boston from evicting Occupy Boston members from their encampment at Dewey Square.

Occupy Boston lawyers had asked for a permanent restraining order, arguing that the city of Boston should not be allowed to evict protesters without a hearing.

City lawyers argued that free speech is not unlimited, especially when there are serious safety concerns.

The city has said it does not have any plans to evict the encampment, but argued in court that it should have the option to do so if the situation gets out of hand.

Let them sleep in it tonight, and then hammer them tomorrow.

Not surprising now. Their usefulness to obama has ended for the time being. They have went from an asset to a liability.For now and in the forseeable future, the obama regime will distant themselves from them. But, when their services are once again needed, they will again be a protected spieces. Until their usefulness is over.

....maybe skinning and acohol bath?

My favorite would be, locked in a large room with continiuos commie singer Barbara Streizand “ Papa can you hear me “ song, over and over and over playing 48 hours.

How is that for cruel and unusual. And then after, all of the usual riot dispersion tools.

Those with below normal IQ's are insulted!

Have no fear, mumbles will not do anything about this, he's weak. If I was mayor the protesters would have been gone a long time ago, a hell of a long time ago, no permit, no protest, period. And no occupying public or private land.

All the ‘give me’ girls and their ilk vote for him, then you’ve got all the whackjobs, the drunks, druggies, etc. who have no clue what they are doing but get a free ride and probably a free meal to go to the voting booth and pull the lever for this a$$hat! I figure they’ll be gone by Christmas, they need to clean up that area for New Year’s Eve. Most of them will probably leave for Christmas anyway, unless they are truly nuts.....

The leftist who complained during the Bush years,about squashing dissent seem to be doing at least on face value the same thing they were accusing Bush of doing.I guess once you start being in charge,it is not so fun having a bunch of radicals willing to tear the government down.

Oh and by the way,if these Occupy Wall Street guys had tried what they were doing,during 2010,after the Dems became more certain about a need to present a “strong front” to retain power in economic hard times......and before the Republicans took back the house-they’d have been stomped much harder then now.

The establishment that is the Democrat party mostly doesn’t care about much beyond retaining power once they have it,these people are embarrassing them;so they will get rid of them.

A caller said to Howie he bet they’d get rid of the Occupiers just before First Night (maybe a week before). “A lot of tourists come in to town and they’d want them out of there.”
One Occupier was interviewed on Ch 5 and said he hoped they could stay till Christmas at least.

And as Howie pointed out remember when we were in Iraq
and the libs made a big deal out of how we were OCCUPYING
them? Suddenly “Occupy” is a good thing.

I've never noticed that Mumbles is particularly business friendly, but in this case I could see him wanting the occupiers out. Having them there for First Night would not only make a lot of people unhappy, it would probably result in some very bad publicity.

Howie is right. The Left is so hypocritical, it's disgusting.

via talk 1200
Mayor Thomas Menino has told Occupy Boston protesters they must leave their encampment in the city’s financial district by midnight or face eviction. The mayor said Thursday he’ll be encouraging the protesters to leave voluntarily. Dot Joyce, a spokeswoman for Menino, said if they refuse to leave police would take ``necessary and appropriate’’ action to remove the encampment. The move comes a day after Suffolk Superior Court Judge Frances McIntyre rejected the protesters’ request to ban the city from removing them.The judge said in Wednesday’s decision that the occupation of state land can be viewed as a ``hostile act’’ not protected by free speech rights. A lawyer representing the protesters, Jeffrey Feuer, said he would file a motion with the judge Thursday to stay her ruling until an appeal can be heard.
