2. Tents are expensive.
I imagine there were sleeping bags and other pretty pricey items there. I thought the new role of the police was only protection of private property and the denial of civil liberties to people who exercise them in public spaces. I's OK to spray and beat the hell out someone because the cops don't much give a flip about civil rights, but destroying private property is a real threat to the entire status quo and their handlers need to keep them on a shorter leash or they might eventually turn on them too. :woohoo:
