In my previous post on Occupy Boston, Occupy Boston Protests More Peaceful Than Occupy Wall St, I made a point of mentioning that city and state officials, including the Governor, have been very accommodating to the protestors. Some 200-300 protestors have literally set up camp on Dewey Square in downtown Boston, property that's owned by the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy (I can hear the screams already!), which controls the property. "To avoid unrest, the Conservancy, like the city and Boston Police Department, has not booted the campers off the 1â„2-acre plot. Conservancy."
This, however, is not sitting well with the Tea Party members of Boston. A spokeswoman for the group is reportedly "miffed," and vows to recoup costs of the protests and clean-up "for the taxpayers of Boston." A civil rights att'y. states it sets, "a dangerous precedent." IMHO, the city and local officials are going about this the right way. I'm not totally sure about what happened in New York, just that violence happened, and it hasn't in Boston. And, I personally, am praying that it doesn't!
