Skip to comments.Menino to Protestors - Get Out!
Posted on 12/08/2011 8:43:41 AM PST by raccoonradio
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.
About friggin time, Mumbles. Howie Carr list ping. Howie is in NYC today on “personal business” (my hunch is a poss.
movie version of Hitman) and Col. Hunt will be in.
Tasers, night sticks, and high-pressure water cannons should be used.
Let's see how brave these spoiled brats are when they have to face bodily harm for their "beliefs".
bed wetting vermin should have been out two months ago
Hopefully, though remember this is Boston—kid gloves. The mayor seemed to take their side but after awhile he was being proved a fool for not getting rid of them. They got a court order (pre-emptive) to try to prevent from being evicted, issued by a Romney-appointed judge, and supposedly Dec 15 would be the date for a review...but the same judge, I believe, wound up making this ruling yesterday.
Even then Menino was saying “well we’re not saying they’ll
be evicted, only if they go over the line” (or words to that effect). Then, surprise, the city/Menino issues this.
(After confrontations like them trying to bring a sink in.
“Well, they can stay but they can’t bring building materials in” etc.)
Caller to Howie Carr show (WRKO Boston): “They’ll have to get rid of them...New Year’s Eve is coming up, city has lots of tourists for First Night and they don’t want to have that there. I predict they’ll get rid of em on
Christmas Eve, a week before.”
Of course that would be a sob story wouldn’t it—evicted
on Christmas Eve! How about on the anniversary of Lennon’s death, eh? Imagine...no occupiers.
“I really hope they let us stay till Christmas at least”—

I agree, tasers, night sticks et al should be used. Years ago Boston’s Tactical Police Force would be brought in to get rid of hippie protestors. They would have the horses
crap on the street and drag the “gone limp” protestors through the dung.
Ah, a fine old tradition. Sadly lacking in our time.
I said the same thing in a post yesterday, they need to be gone and soon so the City can clean up the tons of crap, etc for the New Year’s Eve celebration, I am actually stunned that mumbles has acted so fast on this. I figured he’d let them hang around another week or so, he finally grew a pair, I wonder what’s behind this? I wonder if they will go peacefully and where they will go? At least once or twice a week they would march all over the city, to Verizon and protest over there and other places. I am soooo glad to see these clowns being removed. How much money was lost to businesses due to these idiots?
How about a drum of Lysol Concentrate?
With this group of smelly bums, that might actually improve on their odor.
Yup it’s def. cost businesses. You may have heard about the Milk St Cafe in NYC—right next to Occupy Wall St. and run by the same folks (it’s a spinoff) of a place in Boston.
First they (NYC location) had to lay off a bunch of people. Now they may have to close! They’re hurting a small business, a cafe
that might actually EMPLOY them if they were to clean up and apply for it.
As for the Lysol bit, when I saw the Occupiers out west being pepper sprayed I said “that’s actually disinfectant. Don’t
Lysol me, bro!”
I live in Beverly and thankfully there has not been an Occupy here. In Salem there was briefly an “Occupy Salem”
movement, about a dozen at most who stood at Riley Plaza
with signs (”End the War”). But it really wasn’t an occupation as the small bit of land in front of the post office (where we’d held a tea party rally last yr) apparently had no camping out, so it was just a protest.
Not so much an occupy.
one of the comments on Bos Herald article
>>So Tom Menino put out a saucer of milk for the stray cat nicknamed Occupy. And that stray kept creeping back onto the porch every night for the past two months. Now Menino decides he no longer wants the stray around, but how does he rid himself of the damn thing?
And how ironic that they rented a U-Haul. Last time I looked U-Haul was one of those demonic corporations. Why, they may even pay their CEO.
“How about a drum of Lysol Concentrate?”
Yeah, hooked up to the water cannons: washes the vermin away and disinfects the park all at the same time.
Ya know, people all the time are laughing about Mumbles, but seriously, when his words are more understandable than the Mombasa MF’s speeches, the whole country got some problemicious sichyatias, leery!
