Here in New Orleans a lot of 'occupyers" are bums and gutter punks, they got kicked out from the square in front of city hall and moved into abandoned buildings. People are scared of them - they break into houses and steal and they are really dirty and have all kinds of bugs and germs...I guess some of the "top shelf" occupiers are political activists, but there are way too many homeless and transients there who just want to camp for free and get free food...I think it is a right thing for the city management to close all these camps - if folks want to have a protest on public land - let them come and have a meeting, but do not just let bums squat in a city park under some political slogan they do not care about! Most of them should be in rehab and not in politics...
