Tea Party to Occupy Richmond (VA) Protesters * SHOW US YOUR PERMITS!

By
Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.

In the words of Will Smith's character in Bad Boys II - Now THIS is what I'm talking about.

The Richmond (Virginia) Tea Party is accussing the Richmond mayor, Dwight Jones, of NOT treating all citizens alike.  Tea Party spokesperson, Colleen Owens, is saying that Jones has given the protesters calling themselves OCCUPY RICHMOND a pass while the Richmond Tea Party was required to comply with city regulatory oversight prior to their Tea Party Tax Day in 2009.  When a Tea Party member checked, the officials indicated that Occupy Richmond did not have any requirements for them to protest and remain overnight in Kanawha Plaza.

 

Will reacts to the news that Bay is back as director

I'm not surprised at the double standard, but the difference is that the Tea Party were willing and able to follow the law.

Wallace, 

Pretty sure the mayor is going to be in some HOT WATER over this one!  Very obnoxious.  Also the tea party probably returned the area in good condition.  Shocking how disgusting the OWS folks are.

All the best, Michelle

The media is doing everything they can to support the ows folks, without trying to look like it of course.

This people are against hard work, capitalism and are being bused in by "socialist liberal" groups that follow and support Obama

I am shocked, simply shocked that the OWS crowd hasn't had to buy permits, get insurance, follow the rules....oh wait, no I'm not.

I hope they continue suing these cities for the funds they paid for the Tea Party protests and I hope they win.

Richmond's mayor is really in a bind because of his voting base much like the NEWBIE Oakland, CA mayor who has already had problems with her police chief.

As these situations unfold, more will come out about the abuses.

I am in the view that a free people do not need permits to exercise their right to peacefully assemble. That said, the only reason why I think the OWS didn't need permits was that their assembly was not organized nor was it a planned event, where the Tea Party was.
