OWS Losers Go On Hunger Strike, Promptly Get Arrested

Posted by on Dec 05, 2011 at 9:19 am

The idiots who thought it would be a good idea to protest a church while going on a hunger strike have been picked up by the NYPD. I guess they’ll remain hungry while in jail.

One day after it began, three Occupy Wall Street protesters participating in a hunger strike outside Duarte Square were arrested today shortly before noon. The protesters were there “as part of a continued effort seeking sanctuary on Trinity Wall Street’s unused and vacant lot of land.” Laura Gottesdiener, the strike’s co-coordinator, tells us that the three protesters have been replaced by three others, “and they’ll continue to strike until the guys are released.” The NYPD confirmed the arrests but couldn’t confirm the charges, which Gottesdiener said were for trespassing.

“Since they were arrested for trespassing, we assume that this was done on behalf of Trinity Wall Street,” Gottesdiener says.

How dare the church not want their lot to be filled with the human debris. The nerve of them.

    OK, the occupiers were removed from Zuccotti Park and they somehow found their way to Duarte Park over a mile north of the former infestation. There are things that aren’t clear to me:

    1. Duarte is a tiny parklet consisting of a triangle of open space and a few benches – the only reason I know about it is that it’s a good spot to find curbside parking on a Sunday.
    2. It’s a City park. That means it “closes at dusk” and NYPD and Parks Patrol can clear it out every night with no Administrative authorization.

    3 The group is protesting that they are not permitted to infest the Trinity Church’s “unused and vacant lot of land” which is a graveyard.

    So, they want to move from the private space where they were asked to leave to a public park where they can’t stay to a land-marked cemetery so they can crap on the graves.

    … and they want my respect?

    I say let them starve. It is, after all, a free country.
    And then, MrsObama says we’re all too fat and the Mayor of NewYork says we eat too much good stuff.
    So, it’s patriotic to starve oneself in a free country.

    I hope I got that right,yes?
