When "Occupy" Means "I Steal What's Yours"

By Proof

William Teach over at Pirate's Cove, had this sickening piece of video, depicting the aftermath of the OWS occupation of a privately owned dwelling:

If I break into your house and trash it, and it costs you five thousand dollars to repair (and fumigate), how is that any different, morally, from someone who swindles or steals the same amount?

And if the "one percent" are evil for "tricking people" into mortgages they couldn't afford, and taking their money, then aren't the OWS thugs just as guilty for stealing someone else's wealth, too? (And I suspect whoever owned this house was NOT part of the 1%.)

Vandalism is a form of theft. Even if the home owner or business has insurance that would cover the vandalism, it still robs the owner of the cost of his deductible, plus the time and labor to make things right, and robs every one in the pool of insured who must pay the premiums to make this vandalism whole again.

IMHO, the homeowner should have pressed charges against these thugs. I would have loved to have heard the pony-tailed moron trying to justify his actions in a court of law.

  1. Any laws already on the books, including all the most fundamental, concerning trespass, private property and the like, are suspended when it comes to left wing "protests."

    It's hard to imagine that someone who commits a crime would be free to go just because they were non-violent in their escape.

    We live in an upside down society because we tolerate it. In my mind, the owner of this property is complicit in the problem for refusing to insist that the perpetrators be prosecuted.

  2. Any laws... are suspended when it comes to left wing "protests." Yeah. Like that chucklehead who threw the smoke bomb at the White House. If that had been a Tea Partier who did that (if Tea Partiers ever conceived of doing such a thing) he'd be getting grilled in a small dark room somewhere today.
