“Occupy Hartford” Told To Disperse

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Hartford officials have notified Occupy Hartford participants to leave their encampment, citing safety concerns after reports of drug use and a sexual assault.

Hartford police notified the protesters Tuesday to pack their tents, tables and other equipment by 6 p.m. and leave the site informally dubbed “Turning Point Park,” at the corner of Broad and Farmington streets.

The encampment is part of a nationwide movement of people who believe American corporations unfairly control the nation’s economy and, by extension, the well-being of everyday citizens.

Some Occupy Hartford participants tried last weekend to move the encampment, saying they wanted to avoid others who were engaging in drug use and other unwelcome activities at the first site.

Police also are investigating reports that a man groped and forcibly kissed a woman in her tent.

    The lowest common denominator of society, thus is the lot of “occupy” pestilence. They are the people who made bad choices in life, either dropping out of school, using drugs and otherwise squandering their chances at being productive members of society. It’s about time the pestilence is purged from Hartford. Simply, if they want what successful people have earned, stay in school (whether it be trade school or academics) sacrifice time with your family and friends to get ahead. It is HOW people get ahead, and I say worthless Democrat Liberals are keeping minorities poor and dependent for preaching the mantra of “victimhood” and equal outcome without equal effort. The US is the land of opportunity by working hard, not equal outcome by demanding.
