‘Occupy Oakland’ Deposited $20,000 at Wells Fargo after Vandalizing it

|CBS – San Francisco and the San Francisco Examiner reported:|
|Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch.
This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank.
|The anti-capitalism protesters discovered banks are convenient:|
|“It takes time to transfer funds to a credit union. We need to help people in jail now,” the minutes of the Monday meeting read.
The $20,000, donated from the national Occupy Wall Street movement, will be used to bail demonstrators out of jail or pay injured protesters’ medical expenses. […]
Ninety-seven percent of the Occupy campers voted to approve the proposal.
|Notes to ponder:
– Shouldn’t Wells Fargo keep the Occupiers’ $20,000 to pay for the property damage?
– Shouldn’t the Occupiers distribute the $20,000 to the poor?
– Why are they hoarding those dollars? Isn’t that against their anti-capitalism principles?
