Simple: Just don’t prosecute them!
The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property…
“They have chained themselves to a large drum filled with concrete,” reads an email from Department of Homeland Security/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich to GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck. “GSA controls the permits and has asked FPS [Federal Protective Services] not to enforce the curfew at park and the prohibition on overnight encampments…
Peck — who later resigned amid revelations his agency held lavish junkets at taxpayers’ expense — replied: “Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…”
And yet, if you’re a right-winger who obeys the law and has never hurt anybody, Janet Napolitano still thinks you’re an “extremist.”
Weird. It’s almost like there’s one set of rules for the people who are deemed useful by the Obama administration, and another set of rules for anyone who disagrees with them. But that can’t be it, can it? Somebody would’ve noticed the pattern by now, wouldn’t they?
Nah. They’re definitely not corrupt and rotten to the core. And you won’t say so, if you know what’s good for you.
