If you ask me, this sounds like a great reason to allow these Occupy Boston maggots to stay right where they are.
Thin the herd, so to speak. Of course the same folks fighting to allow these shiftless layabouts to stay would turn around and sue the city if anything did happen. That’s the thing with the left: They want it both ways at all times.
“(City officials) have inspected the encampment and concluded it poses an imminent threat of danger to the occupiers and those around it,” the document reads, noting that Fire Marshal Bart Shea found a wood-burning stove and “very intoxicated men smoking cigarettes” in the tents.
“The site poses a substantial and worsening risk of fire,” the lawyers claim. “People will be trampled before they even get out of their tents should any type of fire or panic ensue.”
The documents cite violence and “worsening unsanitary conditions” in the tent city, where the rats dining in compost bins and a “filthy food tent filled with dirty dishes” pose a disease threat.
Jeffery Feuer, a lawyer for Occupy Boston, called the city’s complaints an “excuse,” noting it allowed homeless people with generators and propane burners to live under the Southeast Expressway from 2002 to 2003. “I think the reason they are seeking to not allow this now is that this is a political protest as opposed to people just living there,” he said.
