Well those kids are about to learn an important life lesson then.

If they blame the city, that is so wrong. Firstly, parents shouldn't just let there ignorant children romp the streets of Philly (or any city) and secondly, if the kids choose to participate, they need to be prepared for the consequences.

If you attempt to act like an adult, the world just must treat you like one.

She was 19 (not that she couldn't still be raped), not 14. She made her decision to be there.

I'm not defending rape in any way, but agreeing to sleep in a tent with a strange man... She made that choice. I wouldn't have done that.

This was a large protest in Chicago last October 10th. You can really see how big it was starting at about 2:00 minutes into the video.

No one should blame the city, but they will. Parents shouldn't let their kids roam Philly's streets, but they do. Everyone should be prepared for the consequences of their actions, but they aren't.

I think we'll be seeing problems as more cities try to move or close down these occupations.

Or once the cold weather sets in, especially in Chicago, the occupiers will be forced out.
