    Translation: The laws to which everyone else must adhere cannot be enforced on leftists.

    Using that logic, a case could be made to overturn zoning laws, sanitation laws, restaurant inspections, building codes, fire codes and scores of millions of other state and local regulations....You know, it cramps my right to political expression!!

    The curfew was a bit of a dirty trick. I agree with this Judge on this one. I also have a big problem with the protest permit issue. The costs for these permits have become enormous. That issue will have to be addressed as well. Both tactics seem very Un-American to me.

    Baloney.

    The squatters shouldn't be exempted from any local gathering, camping, vagrancy, sanitation, food service, etcetera laws that every other citizen and group of citizens is expected to comply with.

    But they're a bunch of socialist know-nothings, so they get a pass.

    And what laws are they being exempted from? And on what basis do you conclude they are a bunch of socialist know-nothings? And on what basis do you conclude that it is the reason they are getting a "pass"? In fact, what do you known at all about the matter? You seem to have more ignorant propaganda than you do knowledge.

    Except that would infringe on other peoples constitutional rights. Thus is not acceptable.

    Simple question? Are they camping there? During the hours of darkness are they pitching tents, laying down sleeping bags, or other sleeping material? Are they cooking here? are they urinating, defecating or otherwise going to the toilet?

    Do they block traffic? both pedestrian and vehicular. Are they littering? Do they require increased police presence?
