    Occupy Tucson protestors file lawsuit against city

    TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Late breaking news from the Occupy Tucson movement. Protesters are filing a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city.

    In fact, the suit is also filed against Tucson Police, Mayor Walkup and members of city council.

    Volunteer lawyers tell KOLD News 13 they filed a lawsuit Monday afternoon against the city on behalf of those arrested at Occupy Tucson and they are asking for a temporary restraining order to stop arrests at Veinte de Agosto park.

    Tucson City Attorney, Mike Rankin released this statement Monday afternoon,"As to the lawsuit, the city's position remains unchanged. The codes we are enforcing comply with the constitutional requirements and are enforceable. We will respond to the lawsuit and seek its dismissal."

    But attorneys for the occupiers say they were forced to defend their client's free speech rights and that means taking them to federal court.

    "So we are hoping to get a temporary restraining order to keep the city from pushing them out of Veinte de Agosto park and from getting them anymore tickets. But the most important part is that they are not able to push them out of park like they did with Armory Park last week," said Paul Gattone, a Civil Rights Attorney working with Occupy Tucson.

    Occupiers say Tucson Police have issued more than 450 citations since Occupy Tucson started.

    They hope to hear back from the federal courts sometime on Tuesday.


    Did you know that ignoring and violating city ordinances is a "civil right" now? Or that loitering on city property after closing time is "free speech"? I wonder if this new "civil right" to ignore laws at will applies to everyone, or just to "special people" with "holy causes" . . . because I'm pretty sure the homeless people who flood Tucson in the winter and are the main reason we HAVE laws against sleeping overnight in the parks would be shocked to hear that they have a "civil right" to now ignore those laws.

    My God, what a parade of circus freaks.

    Arson, rape and vandalism are civil rights. Why not the rest too?

    Which brings us to the question of whether these are general civil rights for everyone, or that new class of "special" civil rights the left has invented, which only apply to SOME people?

    All animals are equal.

    But some are more equal than others.

    Find a little island way out in the south Atlantic and throw all these scummy, dirty, lazy, radicals, anarchists and socialists on it and forget where they are.
