Portland Needs 70 DUMP TRUCKS to Clean Up Filth After Occupy Goons Removed From Parks


Workers with gas masks move in after police cleared out the Occupy Portland squatters camp. (Mike Zacchino, The Oregonian )

City officials needed 70 dump trucks to clean up the filth after the Occupy Portland squatters were removed this weekend from two downtown parks.
Oregon Live reported:

A dozen city employees today plan to finish clearing Chapman and Lownsdale squares of debris and trash so engineers and horticulture experts can survey damage to the parks’ structures and trees.

City officials expect the parks to be closed for at least one week. Weeks of camping by Occupy Portland at the two downtown parks have torn up grass and damaged plant beds.

Bob Downing, central services manager for the parks bureau, said he’s walked through the two parks periodically since the occupation began.

“I’m not really surprised,” Downing said. “It was what we expected it to be.”

Downing said about 70 dump trucks hauled trash and debris from the camps over the weekend. He said about 30 city employees worked Sunday to clear the parks.

They want your money.
And, they want you to clean up after them.

    Oh, gee! Let’s see, a bunch of losers get together is pup tents, no toilets, no sanitation, murders, drugs, rapes, hurling excrement, wheeling knives, cut police, homeless, criminals. Set up house for 2 months on public property.

    Really? JUST 70 dump trucks.

    Obama supported these fleabaggers and will now lay claim to all the new jobs created, saves or “supported” by the mess left by the vermin who lived in the parks.

    B-but I thought these people loved Mother Earth?! Aren’t they into saving the planet or something? Good riddance, now if the mayors in other cities around the country would just do the same thing, this (bowel) movement will go away.

    Hit these 1% in their pockets. That would show them. Obama could have stopped this. Set up their pup tents on the lawn of Pelosi, Reid, Axelrod, Plouffe.

    There was no urgency to get rid of these bunch of human garbage for weeks but now that they are gone public service union workers get overtime pay to clean up after them. It could not wait till Monday, a regular work day. Tea party people were required to post a bond for their gathering that would have been forfeited had they left 1/10th the mess and the main stream media would have all had pictures and breast beating outrage for days.

    More will be needed to clean up the Oakland squatter camp. What I’ll be taking delight in is that the city of Oakland is likely to take a nice financial hit for their fecklessness. Icing on the cake would be for the major shipping companies to pare back their operations at the port due to the lack of support from city hall over that little “general strike” that interrupted their operations a couple of weeks ago.

    Your point is taken, but it’s a good idea to get that filth out of downtown before the start of the business week. This had become a disease site. Also, the longer the junk stays in place, the more likely it will show up again in the same or slightly different place.

    The text of the 1st Amendment is instructive:

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    The limitation of Congressional authority to enact certain laws has evolved into prohibition of police from halting conduct that pose a danger to life and public and private property.

    Nearly every city of any size has ordinances that require public demonstrators to register, obtain a permit to gather in specified areas for specified periods of time, pay for expense of police, and post a bond to cover public expense incurred as a result of demonstrators exceeding or violating the terms of their permit. In the case of every OWS encampment, these limitations either were not imposed, or were not enforced by city governments. Consequently, crimes and public health violations are common. Rioting and mayhem happened in some places and was threatened everywhere.

    The resultant costs have been enormous for city governments, private businesses and residences nearby to OWS encampments. This is intolerable.

    Responsible public officials not infrequently have supported the demonstrators. All have displayed cowardice, irresponsible apathy, and/or ignorance of their ability to legitimately confine and limit demonstrations.

    A pox on all of them

    I don’t get it. Did they think they were entitled to have someone else clean up after them? Whatever the merits if their arguments, they had no right to act like pigs.

  • Mick Texan

    Mistakes:

    1. The Police didn’t get names/addresses etc. from the protesters.

    2. The bill to clean up this area should be shared among the protesters. If one can’t pay the bill goes up for the rest of them.

    3. IF they don’t pay put them in prison for 5 years!

    Everyone has a right to protest but NO ONE has a right to trash public or private property!

  • Patriot Act

    Although I applaud Portland for taking action, it took way too long.

    But what really rankles me is the NYC police and mayor. If they had shut down the Zuccotti Park demonstration in the first day or two, then this whole nationwide “movement” would probably have never occurred. Only after they let it fester for weeks did the infestation start spreading across the nation.

    You might recall that they advertised the demonstration many months earlier as a “Day of Rage” on Wall Street. Notice the “Day”. Well, the demonstration was a flop, only a hundred or so people turned out, and that would have been the end of it if NYC hadn’t looked the other way.

  • Catherine

    They have 20Gs in the bank bill them.

    Me I would have left the trash there for all the people to see what these punks were about yes let the people see who the real pigs are.

    About 2 months would have done it then I would have sent them the bill to clean it up.

    In a way for all that I like about Gov Walker he also delayed action so long that it gave aid and comfort to the same entitlement deranged crowd. Had he stood up sooner perhaps the unions would have had a harder time communicating to put operation poopstock into practice. Other aside, tea partiers leave venues cleaner than they found them but progs libs commies ruin their venues like vermin.

    Occupy now has more than $1 Million in Almagamated Banks due to big bucks contributions. Although some of it has been embezzled (surprise) and credit card companies are now refusing to process the credit donations (credit card donations, another huge surprise from those who scorn capitalism, lol), these funds should be seized and used to clean up parks, those cities that had the guts to get rid of these useless tramps first getting dibs.

    One good thing about Porkupy- it pretty much made anyone who criticized the Tea Party for being disruptive look like the hypocrites they are.

    This is a golden opportunity for some instant karma. A little while back Occupy Portland (the anti-corporate protest) incorporated over financial matters.
    http://www.katu.com/news/local/132664123.html
    That means there is bank account and a registered board of directors that are legally responsible for the damages done, in the same way as any other evil corporation accused of trashing the environment. If they foolishly plunder the account there is possible jail time involved, just like any other evil corporation. These poor fools who think that corporations are predators running amok in society may find out just how crazy the over-regulation actually is first hand, and I personally hope they choke on the red tape that has been killing us small business owners for decades now. I do hope they took out an insurance policy from one of the evil insurance companies.

    Most of these squatters were from other places around the country. Seems eveyone there that was interviewed was from Alabama, Michigan, other states and “East Coast”. Makes sense who would be in the tents without a home or hotel. Now the newspeople are saying they want the public to donate for the clean up. WTF? Someone is getting rich off the donations to the Portland OWS. They need to send the bill to the leader of the Portland Occupy. Occupy’s whole motive is get cash rich for demonstrating. What a mess. I heard they have an account with Wells Fargo and deposited $20,000 just today alone. THE PARK WILL REMAIN CLOSED INDEFINITELY. Downtown park is barely a city block square is ruined and people can’t enjoy it on their lunch breaks. The Mayor needs to get a clue. These Occupy your pockets protestors are blocking traffic and snarling streets that are already riddled with roadblock from construction everywhere…… (Paid for by obama stimulous money for votes) Wait until Holiday comes. They (Oh We Smell protestors) are still roaming the streets. Shoppers will not shop downtown. Trust me. Most of the protestors are severely mentally handicapped. For Real. They are NOT the 99%. They are 1/10th of a percent. They are being paid by obama’s seiu on beahlf of “obama (sic) for America”.

  • Rose

    #66 – when these hanks of pure garbage have trashed public places and small businesses at the expense of small business owners and local taxpayers, they have certainly NOT of all people “TARGETTED” the 1% of the RICHEST.
    They have attacked in the most vile manner the taxpayers, the hardest working of the population, the basic foundation of providers and of the core structure of the community. And while the majority of 1%ers will pay many times their fair share of that BITE, so too will half the population of these United States – the WORKING HALF.

    They are the garbage – garbage is their entire legacy, their entire Fruit, their entire Produce, and nothing else at all.

    There are no words so vile they can insult these rabble, the worst WORDS of the human language can only flatter these vermin and plague carriers.

    Charlie Brown cartoon strip used to call a little boy with an unwashed baby blanket and traveling in a small dust cloud “Pigpen” – what a compliment compared to the conduct of “Occupy”.

    If you don’t like the words being applied to these vermin, just spend a bit more time considering the message of the vermin themselves.

    THEY ARE the complete epitome and consummation of what they are ranting against.

I’m sure the personal possessions and camping gear of the Occupiers would look like filth to you lackies of the 1%, because guess what, they are poor people.
    When your billionaire friends meet they can afford to pay somebody minimum wage to clean up after them.

  • amerika the beautiful

    maybe the protestors would’ve cleaned up after themselves if they hadn’t been beaten out of the park. does anyone think that garbage receptacles were provided and maintained for the protests? use your heads and stop being delusional about you being part of the 1%. and by all means, denounce any american citizen who dares to invoke YOUR 1st amendment right, since it’s clearly not for ALL americans, just for those who do armchair protesting.
