The straight poop on Occupy Santa Cruz

Out of all the cities and all the towns that have been Occupied, so far Santa Cruz hasn’t done anything to put itself on the map. You probably didn’t even know there was such a thing as Occupy Santa Cruz. That changes now.

San Jose Mercury News:

County officials this week released a list of 93 complaints of disruptive and illegal behavior near the county’s main offices and courthouse, adjacent to the Occupy Santa Cruz camp.

Since the camp was joined by dozens of tents that belong to the homeless, county workers and others have documented drug and alcohol use, public urination and defecation, littering, bathing in county restrooms, fights and more.

That’s not the fun part, though. That’s just the same old boring Occupy miscreance and filth we’ve come to expect. No, the fun part is this (emphasis mine):

At least one incident on the county list wasn’t noted by the Sheriff’s Office: the discovery of an estimated 200 pounds of human feces near the county Veterans Memorial Building, just across the Water Street bridge from the camp.

The county called in a hazardous materials team to clean up the mess, and installed a security fence around the building, which is closed for renovations. There is no evidence that linked the excrement to the camp.

Of course not. It was probably left there by the angels who watch over Occupy Santa Cruz because what they’re doing is so wonderful. It’s 200 pounds of angel crap. The Occupiers could probably get a pretty penny for it, if eBay wasn’t such a tool of the evil capitalist system.

Correction: I was incorrect to say Occupy Santa Cruz hasn’t done much to distinguish itself. Last week there was a ringworm outbreak. So that’s a new one. I regret the error.

P.S. Once again the Brits have picked up on an American trend as Occupoopers hit London. Gives a whole new meaning to “squatter’s rights,” innit?
