New York Mayor Has Wall Street Protesters Evicted By The Police

But Occupy Wall Street is not over yet!

Early this morning, New York City Mayor Bloomberg has the police sweep into Lower Manhattan and finally clear out the hundreds or so protesters of the Occupy Wall Street movement that have been camping out for nearly eight weeks to protest income inequality.

Decked out in riot gear, police and the park’s owners told protesters at 1 a.m. to pack up and get out. The group can return, however, as the big issue seems to be the masses of people sleeping in a public space for this long stretch of time.

Yeah, tell that to the kids of Occupy Twilight!

Mayor Bloomberg addressed the issue this morning, saying:

“The First Amendment protects speech. It doesn’t protect the use of tents and sleeping bags to take over public space.”

The park is closed today, so that city officials can survey the damage done by the protestors and restore some order to the space. They will be allowed to return, however, but without tents, sleeping bags or tarps, and must follow park rules, according to Bloomberg.

Is this the beginning of the end? Could this bring this movement to a halt? Similar action certainly did in Oakland and Portland. Is the hub of this whole operation next?

    Finally, get those dirty scummy street occupiers out of there. Its a cesspool of drugs, rape, murder, urination, defication and disease. Whats more discusting are the organizations and people that back them.

    They can come to San Francisco becuase our mayor has chosen to do NOTHING!! thats right NOTHING oh except let them expand their camp down market street. It smells, there is feces on the sidewalk, garbage etc. These people are not doing anythng but sitting around smoking weed, drinking doing other drugs and making a huge mess. IT IS TIME FOR THEM TO LEAVE!!!! The parks belong to everybody they have no right to claim them as their home!

    Respect for private property is the beginning of civil law.
    When the judge doesn’t respect private property, there is no law.

    for the whiners, stop complaining about feces and urine, cause on the rithm the corporations are taking everything we have, we'll be left with the meat we have on our bones and feces and urine as food!

    Re: luvs2hustle – and when president George Bush put 13 wall street guys in the treasury department in order to deregulate the whole banking system so they could turn the country in this mess and steal almost one trillion dollars from the poor and give to the rich, was that law?

    UPS is hiring 55,000 people right now!! Jobs are out there. But you've got to actually work at them. Standing around in a park all day isn't going to cut it.

    Reminds me of Nazi Germany. God bless OWSers. True American heros. The 99% will prevail.

    Re: Surfgolf – UPS is hiring drivers all over the country all the time, because they pay the misery of less than a dollar for delivery. you work to the bone making 100 deliveries a day, in order to make 300 bucks at the end of the week, as a subcontractor, cause they don't want to hire direct employees, so they don't have to pay benefits, so they increase profit! GREAT JOB, HM? but what happens when you have to go to the hospital after getting a hurricane cold for delivering their shiz in the artic cold of massachusetts and you don't have medical insurance?

    It's about time, they are all idiots. They are getting paid to protest, so some don't even know why they are there. They don't respect property or laws, and are costing the city more money. Go home already.

    Occupy wall street? I think they should occupy hollywood. Hollywood is one of those places where there are mineless people who get paid and spend their money on frivolous things like a $20 million dollar wedding or buying extravagant cars. They are the perfect example of people who don't deserve the amount of money they have or make. Those protesters need to go elsewhere. Stop causing a commotion over something that will never change. A job is a job, either take it or don't. We are not living in this world forever, so why complicate your life even more. Just saying.

HELL, THEY BROUGHT GUNS TO THEIR MEETINGS AND THERE WASN'T A POLICEMAN IS SIGHT, BECAUSE THEY ARE CONSIDERED "GOOD AMERICANS". "GOOD FASCISTS" IS MORE LIKE IT.
