Skip to comments.Police told to not arrest Occupy protesters by feds

Records from the Homeland Security Department reveal that the scandal-ridden General Services Administration, with the authorization of President Barack Obama's White House, directed law enforcement officers to stand down and not arrest Occupy Portland protesters who were violating the law, according to a report by Fox News Channel's Steve Doocy Wednesday morning.
The records, obtained by the Inside-the-Beltway watchdog group Judicial Watch as a result of a November 11, 2011, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, include internal Homeland Security Department correspondence, Doocy reported.
Officials at Judicial Watch reported that one November 6, 2011, e-mail exchange between DHS/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich and GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck (who has since been terminated from employment) is specifically related to Occupy Portland protests taking place on federal property in Portland:

Examiner is a blog.
What? They weren’t allowed to arrest the upstanding liberal elite citizen taking a crap on the police car? Homeland Security is more biased than the MSM...
Perhaps it is. I don’t know. But I’ve found Jim Kouri to be a good, consistent source of solid, reliable information.
2 Examiner posts have been posted and pulled in the last 10 mintes. I suspect this one will be a gonner also.
It used to be a time when the Examiner was OK. But no more.
In that case, I sure hope nobody is looking for the occupy group that smashed the windows of obama headquarters the other day.
They are employees of the regime. Stand down, don’t arrest them.
I’m not sure why it would be, in the case of anything I’ve seen come out of Kouri about law enforcement issues. His stuff is always solid.
Well they wouldn’t have to arrest TEA party protesters either. We have to be home in bed by 9PM.
I think those local police need a talking to.
“If the DHS told you to jump off a cliff, would you?”
“Do you work for them, or do you work for the citizens who pay your salaries?”
“If the Chief of Police, the mayor, a city councilman, or other politician told you to not arrest someone who was breaking the law, would you not arrest them?”
“Would you fix a celebrities’ traffic ticket?”
“Are you cool with taking gifts from local businesses to keep the bad element away?”
“How would you like a different job than being a LEO?”
(Can you imagine what would happen if a DHS flunkie told Joe Arpaio to not arrest somebody breaking the law?)
Wonder if they increased OWS pay from $12 per hour.
OWS = Renta Idiots

No no no, it is the muslim Fast and FUrious or other “Stimulus to China” loophole operation to figure who is going to use our funds against us or not.
We are such stupid conservatives, we do not know what is going on or what we are seeing or doing, what the flip do we know about Obama anyways, they are too smart for us to figure, let us live the liberal’s denial and non-investigation of their own. (sarc off)
