Arrest Mayor Bloomberg for Contempt of Court Citizens Arrest!

New York (CNN) -- A New York judge issued an order Tuesday allowing Occupy Wall Street protesters to return to Zuccotti Park, just hours after scores of riot police ordered them out and tore down their tents.

The order from NEW YORK SUPREME COURT JUDGE LUCY BILLINGS allows protesters to bring tents and other equipment back into the privately owned park where the now-global Occupy movement began.

Unfortunately, what many people forget is that judges are just lawyers in robes.

We are talking about anarchy. So things are fun in an anarchy, the mayor has to defy the rules. What fun is anarchy if someone plays by the rules?

but he is now a criminal by definition. And he deserves to be in jail for ignoring this. Or do you make exceptions with the rule of law for the highers ups like Nixon, Bush, Reagan, Libby? Those guys woul dbe in jail if they were not connected. Read Glenn Greenwalds new book. It is an eye opener .
