The New York Post is out with an op-ed piece today demanding that Mayor Michael Bloomberg start showing some “mayoral leadership” in his response to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The News Corp-owned newspaper said the New York City mayor can do this by kicking the Occupy Wall Street “bums” out of Lower Manhattan starting as early as today.
The paper argues what were once credible protests with understandable grievances have transformed into a “public nuisance” full of incessant noise, public urination and defecation, drugs and criminals.
One reason the mayor has been reluctant to remove the demonstrators from their Zuccotti Park headquarters in Manhattan’s Financial District is because the property is a private park owned by Brookfield Properties.
The Post says he needs to quit hiding behind that excuse and get it over with now.
