Forum Post: LA City Council Reflects the Souring of the 99% on OWS

The link to an AP story below traces the evolution of the left-leaning LA City Council's stand on the Occupy LA encampment, moving from open support to tolerance and finally to opposition and the inevitable command to shut it down. It reflects the stupidity of the movement's attachment to a tactic that was unsustainable from the start, and that became the issue above all issues in the public's eye.

The city will now face law suits in the future if it doesn't grant other protests the same benefits it did for over 2 months to OWS. "Equal protection under the law," remember? Why did none of the constitutional experts in OWS see that one coming?

A fitting epitaph of the movement: "They should have listened to their friends."

Cities don't have to put up with you, just because you hide behind the Bill of Rights. Once you break the law, you are exposed to whatever is coming. OWS was putting up with it as did Boston, when they(the cities that have to pay for upkeep of the park) got tired of it and asked them to leave, they said no. Then the cops showed up and kicked them out.
