Another reason for Occupiers to go home

Just in case the nightly threat of rape or living in squalor as the world mocks watches, via JM, we see one more reason why Occupy protesters would do well to reconsider their strategy.

The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.

Home base turns out to be an old homeless shelter.

Thank goodness “[t]he homeless shelter is also facing an eviction of its own from the city.”

But yeah, if you hear any nonsense about the evil thug police force kicking them out of there, just remember this story.

And it looks like it will be cops kicking them out.

Tim Franzen spokesman for Occupy Atlanta told WAOK’s Rob Redding that the group is not thinking about moving its headquarters from the homeless shelter because of the tuberculosis report.

Yeah, no worries that it’s “a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition.”


A few causes of TB transmission?

They include “people in areas where TB is common, people who inject illicit drugs, residents and employees of high-risk congregate settings, medically under-served and low-income populations…” and “[p]eople with prolonged, frequent, or intense contact…”

Smart move, Franzen.

  1. Hi,
    That is horrific. I know one thing for sure, if I was in that building, regardless of what others say, I would be gone ASAP. This is just going from bad to worse, it’s truly unbelievable, what is wrong with these people.

      They are getting a dose of reality, mags. And anarchy.
      Maybe some will wake up to the fact that Anarchy is not for them.

    I’m curious if anyone knows. How is this Tim Franzen associated with one Karen M. Kristensen? It appears the latter may be an Atlanta elementary school teacher.

    Odd for a teacher to be conducting business with a known felon.

        Kinda makes sense.

        Welfare is the giant diaper bag of society.
