The real bad guys

Yesterday, state Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman ruled in favor of New York City and its eviction of the original Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park. The judge said demonstrators are allowed to be there but can’t stay overnight or bring their tents, sleeping bags, generators and semi-permanent structures.

It happened here first. A couple weeks ago, (Un)occupy Albuquerque protesters were evicted from UNM by police on similar grounds: Conditions were unsafe, said the university. Protester Andrew Beale wrote about getting arrested in an opinion piece for the paper. But he also pointed out who he thinks the real bad guys are: Big banks that are risking the country’s economy again and arranging it so taxpayers might have to pay off their gambling debts if they lose.
