#OccupyLA Gets Perks

It looks like lawlessness pays off after all.

Just last week, several #OccupyLA protesters were arrested, from masturbating in front of children to violent assaults with deadly weapons. So, how does L.A. county bribe reward them?

By giving them free public land and office space:

Los Angeles officials have offered Occupy L.A. protesters a package of incentives that includes downtown office space and farmland in an attempt to persuade them to abandon their camp outside of City Hall, according to several demonstrators who have been in negotiations with the city. [...]

Lafferty said city officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall. He said officials also promised land elsewhere for protesters who wish to farm, as well as additional housing for the contingent of homeless people who joined the camp.

Well, not totally free. It'll cost the #Occupiers one dollar, which may be a little rich for them. But just curious, does L.A. plan to offer a similar deal to the Tea Party? Of course not.
