Obama’s #Occupy Degenerates Have Cost Taxpayers at Least $13 Million So Far

We already knew that the Obama-endorsed Occupy hooligans were crude and violent.
(Warning on language and violence)

Now we know these goons are expensive to control, too.
The 4,000+ arrests, the constant street violence, the drug use, vandalism, rapes, public pooping, ring worm outbreaks, attacks on children and death… have cost tax payers over $13 million dollars so far.

The AP reported:

During the first two months of the nationwide Occupy protests, the movement that is demanding more out of the wealthiest Americans cost local taxpayers at least $13 million in police overtime and other municipal services, according to a survey by The Associated Press.

The heaviest financial burden has fallen upon law enforcement agencies tasked with monitoring marches and evicting protesters from outdoor camps. And the steepest costs by far piled up in New York City and Oakland, Calif., where police clashed with protesters on several occasions.

The AP gathered figures from government agencies in 18 cities with active protests and focused on costs through Nov. 15, the day protesters were evicted from New York City’s Zuccotti Park, where the protests began Sept. 17 before spreading nationwide. The survey did not attempt to tally the price of all protests but provides a glimpse into costs to cities large and small.

Broken down city by city, the numbers are more or less in line with the cost of policing major public events and emergencies. In Los Angeles, for example, the Michael Jackson memorial concert cost the city $1.4 million. And Atlanta spent several million dollars after a major snow and ice storm this year.

But the price of the protests is rising by the day — along with taxpayer ire in some places.

Maybe these degenerates should stop costing taxpayers so much money before they start asking for more.

    Being a financial burden and a general pain in our tookus is part of their strategy for getting want they want.

    They figure if they raise enough of a fuss and cause enough headaches that society will pay them to just go away.

    Essentially they are like a bunch of two years who cry and stamp their feet until mommy gives them a cookie.

    Maybe $13 million in dollars, but what about the human cost? What is the human cost of the poor guy having to pick up 200 lbs. of excrement? Or the young girl explaining to her parents how and why she was raped in a tent?

    The real meaning of Thanksgiving: The Triumph of Capitalism over Collectivism

    “And so assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number for that end. . . .This had a very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted then otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little-ones with them to set corn, which before would a ledge weakness, and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”

    and just whom did the 13 million dollar outlay help? not the little guy company owners or their employees who were hindered by this debacle. and you have to wonder from which pot did they take the funding and will they be looking to up the taxes to cover some groups that came up short due to syphoning of budgets to pay for this 13 million dollar hoot- n- nanny.

    OT (not really, i mean, what topic isn’t related to the “one” /s)..

    If Only Obama Had Been This Guy

    [Alas, a few days before his all-but-certain election, he glibly
    telegraphed what would prove the seminal mistake of his
    administration, telling Time magazine’s Joe Klein that, right
    after fixing the financial crisis, “a new energy economy . . .
    That’s going to be my No. 1 priority when I get into office.”

    The financial crisis would not be fixed, but Mr. Obama decided
    our sagging economy would just have to endure fights over
    the big ideas he was so determined to implement anyway,
    including health care, re-empowering labor, redressing income
    inequality, etc.]

    sneakiest president & hard core racist first lady ever!!

    Send a bill to SOROS for $78 Million to cover the expenses and provide restitution to damaged private businesses. And confiscate it from him via the IRS.
    That would take the confiscation of $200 Million worth of real estate property to be sold at auction to cover the bill and expenses of recovery.

    The poor slobbering fool does not know that he must go through the chain of command to give a message to the chief. Now obama can not do like holder and chu and claim i never saw that memo. The secret service never lets anyone get that close to the president unless they have been instructed to do so. That is how presidents get killed or candidates like the kennedy brother.

    The City of New York should sue #OWS and take all their donations that they BANKED to pay for police overtime, clean-up of the park, etc.

    Any overtime paid to police within 3 years of retirement will increase their pensions also.

    You missed the line from this article which is:
    “The AP gathered figures from government agencies in 18 cities ”

    Seeing as how these protest are happening in hundreds of cities and not just 18, then my guess is the number is at least 10 times higher.

    We are a guerilla organization. We are communist women and
    men, underground in the United States for more than four years.

    We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the
    struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, size power
    and build a new society.

    “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic
    system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair
    salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to
    wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and
    we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

    –Adolf Hitler
