Well, according to this story and my own memory, the citations are becoming less numerous with each passing night. I take that as a sign that this idiocy might finally be winding down, and hopefully it will be over in time for the other events.

In other good news, the Richmond Tea Party has demanded a refund from that city because they paid for use of the parks, and the Occupy drama queens did not. Sounds fair to me. If one doesn’t pay then nobody pays. That’s what equal protection under the law is all about.

The odd thing is, neither the ACLU or Paul Gattone of Occupy Tucson have bothered to file for a Writ of Prohibition in Federal Court or a Special Action in Superior Court setting forth the legal argument why Occupation of Tucson City Parks is protected symbolic speech, and asking for an injunction blocking future arrests while the legal issues are being argued and determined.

If the intent is to establish and protect the Occupier’s rights, the necessity of this legal procedure is a “no brainer.”
However, since the Occupiers’ lawyer, Paul Gattone, has failed to take this step, I think there is a hidden,  financial interest.

Paul Gattone has a contract with the City of Tucson to supply legal representation to the Tucson City Court at $750.00 per case. Maybe he’s just building his fee.

The Love of Money is the root of all evil, from Wall Street to Tucson City Court.

Does Wall Street PAY you to propagandize like this?

This movement is growing like wildfire and you know it.

Yeah, nice try.

This movement is growing and is popular with the People, just not with rich people like yourself.

So someone who actually works for a living, thinks before he votes, and takes a shower every day is considered “rich”? I didn’t know the bar was set so low, but OK…I’ll take it I guess.
