Hey, book burnings are coming back, right?

Fahrenheit 451, anyone?

OWS has turned into an episode of Judge Judy. It had so much potential, only to be squandered by advocates of violence. Sad.

@2 I think you mean Portland and Idaho anarchists, right? Cause the ones they did arrest WERE NOT FROM SEATTLE.

At least according to the MSM if you read the whole story.

@3: it's not just the May 1st protests. Occupy Seattle specifically voted against being a non-violent movement.

"proposal: Commit to using methods of non-violent civil disobedience at all of our demonstrations and define violence as unprovoked physical aggression.

proposal fails, 16 to 54"

OWS (OS) is so irrelevant, that saying that it has jumped the shark, has jumped the shark. Check out this babble:

I heard NYC has a people's library already. It's called the Public Fucking Library. I hear we have one here too. Indoors.

so hmmmm, you wouldn't mind if I came and stole all your books? (assuming you have any).

@6, were I to put all my books in Westlake Park and refuse to move them, the risk would be MINE.

They were just setting free all those words and letters. Books are an artificial construct created by the man to falsely imprison and impose meaning upon letters. When words are forced to carry meaning they become the club used by the powerful to place the yoke of servitude upon the necks of the poor. Free the Words! Let the Letters run free!

No, Paul, this will not be an interesting case to watch.

Freedom of speech doesn't give you the right to open a library on publicly-accessible private property, and it doesn't protect your stuff when you decide to store it there, either.

Weren't they given a dozen opportunities to move their stuff before the crack down?

NYC did them a favor by remaindering that awful garbage heap of outdated hippie bibles.

Everyone knows that if you put items in a container that is not in a house you bought, they may just disappear three days later.

There is no right to store books in a public park. I doubt this will get any traction.
