130 Occupy Criminals Arrested In Chicago

What else are we supposed to call them? These far left wing morons are more intent on the process of protesting than actually attempting to affect any sort of meaningful change. They aren’t accomplishing anything, and are turning people against their supposed cause. Hence, you get

(Chicago Tribune) Chicago police arrested about 130 Occupy Chicago protesters starting about 1 a.m. today after the group returned to Grant Park for the second weekend Saturday night and tried to maintain a camp in the park after its official closing time.

As the 11 p.m. park closing approached, more than 100 people decided to stay in Congress Plaza in Grant as several hundred more moved onto a nearby sidewalk or across Michigan Avenue, off Park District property. Police announced several times that anyone still in the park would be arrested, and by midnight, about 100 people remained in the plaza, which had been cordoned off with police barricades.

They gave fair warning.

The plaza was cleared by about 2:40 a.m., with about 130 people arrested, said Central Police District Cmdr. Christopher Kennedy. A few hundred remaining on sidewalks on the east and west sides of Michigan Avenue for a short time after the arrests ended, but most left by about 3 a.m. Those taken into custody were taken away in police vans and Sheriff’s Department buses for booking at police district stations.

Have fun with your misdemeanor record!

Early Sunday, protesters gathered in a tight group surrounding a medical tent in the center of the plaza. They chanted in call-and-response fashion, with questions such as “how we gonna get healthcare?,” or “fix schools,” answered with “tax, tax, tax the rich.” Later, they switched to taunts of the police officers who encircled them, chanting “You serve the 99 percent,” “Whose park? Our park!” and “Why no press? Let the media in!”

Well, there’s a good idea: taunt the Chicago PD. That surely would get them on your side. Morons.

Meanwhile, over to the BBC for Occupy London

Anti-capitalist protesters have started a second camp in London – as a demonstration outside St Paul’s Cathedral entered its seventh day.

The BBC is just telling it like it is. Of course, all the anti-capitalist protesters are using virtually everything that was made because of capitalism. Things like smartphones and quality tents would never have been made in a socialist system.

Finally, here’s another perfect picture of the Occupier, via the NY Daily News, in which the morons are protesting the NY police performing stop and frisks.
