I love how these folk take over other people's property and then act as if the owner is bad for re-taking possession. What the hell...are they thinking. Damn squatters. and thieves.

"SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco police are guarding the former site of the Hayes Valley Farm located at Fell Street and Octavia Boulevard after law enforcement (http://thepoliticsforums.com/#) officials removed protesters who were occupying the area early Thursday morning.
The patch of land is scheduled to be developed into new housing.
There was a large police presence in the area all day after authorities sent out notices this past week, warning protesters they were trespassing on city property and would be arrested.

That raid came at 1:30 a.m. and almost all of the 44 people left peacefully. Three activists living on platforms in trees did not. They and four others were arrested.
One-by-one police and city workers on cherry pickers, took them out.
Police said one protester fell onto a mattress (http://thepoliticsforums.com/#) officers had placed under the tree. He claimed he was pushed."

Oh, on public property/park...don't care. We should be able to use public stuff however we see fit, whenever or privatize them.

The owner is the city. You get awfully worked up over the "rights" of an organization which would care nothing for your rights if they wanted your property.

As @BleedingHeadKen (http://thepoliticsforums.com/member.php?u=146) said, the protesters are occupying property the state sold to developers, property that should have never been in the hands of the state in the first place. There is no reason to whine about protesting the state's ability to engage in the nefarious policy of eminent domain.

I actually agree with this in theory because the city recently seized the land that my favorite Chick-fil-A was standing on to make more room for the freeway. Which I think is bullshit. But these people were likely troublemakers in the first place. They simply found a cause to attach their mischief to. Grownups address complaints through the legal and legislative systems. Children picket and protest.

I don't agree with this because this is pretty much BS. Waiting for the legal and legislative system to address your complains is as useful and lengthy as sending a letter to Santa expecting a reply.

Sure someone at the Post Office might respond, but it's pretty much all bullshit.

Yes, because this usually works.
