So Occupy Fort Wayne (whoever that is exactly) has released a statement.
"We request a public place, in the heart of our city, to have a platform for discussing all of our citizens concerns. We request that we be allowed to maintain a 24 hour a day presence at this site..."
Apparently they want all taxpayers of Fort Wayne to provide them a free place to protest indefinitely. They are guaranteed the right to protest but I don't recall any guarantee that somebody else would be responsible for paying the freight for them to exercise that right.
I'm not sure what the best answer to this dilemma is but I think Fort Wayne City officials should remember that actions have consequences.
While Occupy Fort Wayne wants to be able to hang out downtown 24 hours a day free of charge indefinitely, the City of Fort Wayne and local developers are trying to woo buyers to spend as much as $300,000 to buy a condo downtown in the middle of this.
I guess if I was one of those developers, I would be getting nervous that a sell that could already be a tough one could be getting tougher.
