Occupy Wall Street sues NYC over confiscated books
By Joseph Ax | Reuters 9 hrs ago
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Occupy Wall Street filed a federal lawsuit Thursday against New York City, claiming authorities destroyed $47,000 worth of books, computers and other equipment confiscated from the protesters' encampment in lower Manhattan last fall.
As part of the sweep, Occupy claims, police officers seized more than 3,000 books from the "People's Library." While some of the books were eventually returned, many were in unusable condition, while the rest were apparently destroyed, according to Occupy's lawyer, Norman Siegel.

The lawsuit also questions whether the raid itself was constitutional, Siegel said.
Just wait until Commiecare hits.
Can NY give back the giant bags of feces these sub-human democrats dumped all over Manhattan?
Can we pour lighter fluid on the bags and leave them flaming on the doorstep of the crooked lawyers in this case?
See yours - and raise ya one. No chores? Who can possibly be against that?

(The epitome of civility.)
Remember, Charlie Manson was OWS before OWS was cool.

I would imagine that most of the books were in poor condition before they raided the place as they were outside for many months.

Probably cheaper to destroy than to disinfect.
