Occupy Police – Occupy Boston Is Granted A Temporary Restraining Order Against City Officials

Suffolk Superior court judge Francis McIntyre granted Occupy Boston a temporary restraining order against the city of Boston this morning. While the restraining order is in affect, the encampment cannot be raided unless 1.) there is open dialog between the two parties and 2.) the court approves it. What this means is that Occupy Boston protesters and Boston Police can both relax and continue to be friendly ..for now. While lawyers representing the city of Boston said they had no plans to raid the encampment the boys & girls over at Occupy Boston decided it was an intelligent preventative measure to obtain the restraining order, and we agree, after the early Tuesday morning raid on OWS, we’ve learned to armor up here in Boston. Both parties will meet back at Suffolk Superior on December 1st for an open discussion on the “legal” future of the camp – Occupy Police suggests that you follow the lead of both OWS & Occupy Boston. If your encampment is fearing a raid then the time for a preemptive “legal” strike is now, however, I’d like to advise against using this countermeasure if you’re relations with the city are “already” good, open and well met …but we can never be too prepared now, can we ;) – The final decision is yours – OcPo -
