White House Told Authorities Not To Crack Down On #Occupy Protesters
The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.DMartyr FTW!:
Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property. JudicialWatch.org obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request lodged last year.
In one exchange from Nov. 6, 2011, officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the GSA discuss a group of 11 protesters camped out at the federally-owned Terry Schrunk Plaza.
Obama supports #Occupy protesters.
Pelosi blesses them.
@AlecBaldwin thinks its "good".
UPDATE By DMartyr: I just wanted to add my two cents (one cent after taxes) -
the White House, via the General Services Administration, ordered law enforcement not to intervene unless there was "a threat to public safety." Take a good long look at the list below the fold. From vandalism to terrorism, from child molestations to rapes & murders, apparently the Obama Administration doesn't consider any of these things to be a threat to public safety. If killing innocent people and fire bombing buildings aren't a threat to this Administration, what is?
