Occupy Richmond's Halloween Move

Let the record show the 15-day Occupy Richmond demonstration/encampment at Kanawha Plaza was broken up by forces of the Richmond Police Department in the wee hours of the chilly morning on Halloween Day, 2011.

Irony aside, most of the local occupiers left the area when ordered to go by the cops. That, while reports say nine stalwarts were arrested for refusing to move. A meeting in Monroe Park was called for the afternoon.

What’s next?

As cynics have predicted, maybe the movement itself will fizzle, nationwide, as the nights get longer and colder. Then again, the entire Occupy Wall Street/The 99% phenomenon may have taken on a life of its own. So, like an impossible-to-kill monster in a midnight show, it may be mutating into something much more formidable and relentless.

Happy Halloween.

The occupy movement is silly and ridiculous. They don't even know anything. Its just annoying . I wish they would go back to their McMansions and college trust funds and leave us regular folk alone.

What is ironic about Halloween morning?

These Occupiers are little more than whining crybabies. They broke the law, now they are crying about being put in jail, and about having their stuff confiscated/discarded. They need a good spanking.

Meade Skelton Haufe, why is it you are "regular folk" and the occupiers aren't?

Anonymous, my guess is that anyone who is afraid to reveal their name under their comments won't being giving anybody a spanking.

Because a vast majority of the occupiers come from upwardly mobile families and they are under mind control from extreme left winged college professors to hate America. When asked what they are protesting it ranges from everything from "I want the government to pay for my college" to "I don't know, but Im not the 1%" Oh, please. These kids come from wealth and most likely live off college trust funds set up by their yuppie parents.
