    As the occupiers were being arrested, you could hear their cries about the bail being too much. In fact, they cried so loud, they could be heard as far South as San Diego and as far North as San Francisco.

    The total cost of bail for the arrested occupier is $5,000.00, while the cost to repair damage to LA public property, and the cost of law enforcement will exceed one million dollars.

    While the city (which is near broke) will eventually find the money to pay for these costs, the actual costs will be passed on to citizens through increased fees, tax revenues, etc.

    Do you believe the 99% should shoulder the bill for these slackers and grifters (occupiers) destruction to public property?

    Or, do you think those arrested should be fined appropriately and made responsible to pay back the costs in actual cash or community service time (like maybe helping to repair the damage they caused)?

    What say you???????
