So far, Ive been pretty much ‘on the fence’ about the whole Occupy movement. I initially did understand their gripes and frustrations.

But not any longer. Sure, Im upset about the cop that pepper sprayed those peacefully protesting, but when a group who hasnt gotten the required permits forces another group to another area who has the required permits out…..that is a whole different story.

Last night, as I was getting ready to go to bed, this came on the news:  http://foxbaltimore.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/wbff_vid_10590.shtml

So, those who planned to have a vigil for victims of pancreatic cancer (and got permits) were basically made to walk to another area in order to hold their event. You might say that they decided to use another area on their own, but quite honestly how could they hold their vigil in an area with all this disruption?

The squatters that make up the Occupy movement have invaded our city…..without the necessary permits. They used tax payer electricity (until they were caught by local media). And now, they have forced a group who planned enough in advance to another area. Why arent our police doing anything about this? Why is the Mayor of Baltimore not doing anything about this?

I wasnt part of this vigil, but Im pretty mad that pancreatic cancer victims and their supporters could not hold the vigil that they planned, in the area that it was planned to be in. What about their rights? Will the city refund the money that was collected from the permit that was issued?
