Portland Occupy cost the city $750,000 boo fucking hoo...
$ 3/4 Mill. in police cost for the Occupation in PDX so far. Ask me if I fucking care. That's far less than the same police cost for Blues Fest, or Cinco de Mayo, or the 4th, and undoubtedly less than what is spent each year busting innocent pot smokers.

You did not need to spend this money. We were peaceful. We were not breaking anything or hurting anyone. All you had to do was leave us alone.

It was YOUR choice to escalate. YOU were the ones with guns and gas and batons, not us. YOU were the ones with helicopters, and national guard. Not us.

You panicked. You called in three neighboring counties. (at overtime and per diem rates, close to $100/hr per officer) And you expect us to pay for it.

Would you like to hazard a guess, just a fucking guess, as to how many crimes went unsolved in the past week, because you dirt-bags had to do your chesty, steroid-enhanced, command and control thing?

If a single rapist or robber went free on the eastside, it is your fault, you evil fuckwads.

And believe me, I will crunch the numbers, I will testify in Council, and I will name names.

I will not forgive, I will not forget, and I know which side you're on, boyo.

5. Wall Street cost the city billions.
Neither was necessary, but the one follows from the other.

6. How many crimes were committed while they were making their photo-op
with the riot gear? And clubbing the people who were "resisting arrest" by doing NOTHING?
