More and more some on the council want to
make downtown unsafe. Ms. Hodges must not go
to that area of downtown much, as she obviously doesn't care about people trying to have a good time.
And the council continues to protect the huge
crowd gatherings on Hennepin Ave that are just
waiting to spring into action, and they don't do
anything about mobs pouring out of some downtown
bars that are then fighting on 1st avenue. And, watch, there will be more group assaults on
In conclusion, I want to warn the Downtown
Council, businesses downtown and City Government
that if these things don't stop downtown,
more and more people are not coming to our
'family friendly' downtown.
Occupy has the right to peacably assemble during normal hours, not to camp. They have no right to obstruct the normal use and enjoyment of open spaces by non occupy citizens that wish to use these spaces and don't want to be disturbed by the malcontents that are trying to disrupt the normal activity and lives of average citizens. The .99% are a bunch of spoiled children and shouldn't be indulged.
We can allow peaceful protests, or we can surpress them until a violent breaking point is reached. This happened in Minneapolis in 1934. Four people died and hundreds were injured. Let's not force history to repeat itself.
