MILO to be billed for police presence

36

They did this to me in Garland, Texas. I had to pay it in order to secure the venue. It is wrong. Why should we be made to pay for the violence and savagery of those who will not behave as civilized people? They should be made to pay.
Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths. If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others.

Yiannopoulos to be billed for police presence

SKY News, Thursday, 7 December 2017

Controversial British commentator Milo Yiannopoulos and his promoters will be asked to cough up at least $50,000 to cover the heavy police presence at his Melbourne event.

Hundreds of police were sent in to control up to 500 left-wing and up to 50 right-wing activists who clashed violently outside Yiannopoulos’ Kensington event on Monday night.

Five officers were pelted with bottles and rocks and two protesters, one from each side, were arrested.

Police Minister Lisa Neville said the event’s organisers would be sent a bill for at least $50,000 to cover the police presence.

She said it was a standard practice for these kinds of events.

‘I’m not sure whether they have (agreed to pay it) but they will certainly be getting a bill for it,’ Ms Neville told 3AW on Wednesday night.

Organisers for Yiannopoulos’ Australian tour previously said they expected to be billed about $150,000 for the police presence.

      Not sure why they do not file Anti-discrimination suit . They are tax paying citizens and its police job to provide security.
      And if they need to charge anyone they must charge fee against protestors who are there illegally disrupting a peaceful seminar.

      • Larenzo1

        You are not exactly right. Most of people sent to US were Scotts that lost a war after a battle at Collen den Moor. Also poor debtors also people escaping religious persecution. But Aussies were mainly convicts robbers and thieves.

        • Achmed

          Actually, Larenzo1, first they moved the Scots to Ireland, where the idol worshipping paddy-mics oppressed them. Their marriages were not recognized (not in the papist idol worshipping church) and they could hold no government position, unless .. they went over worshipped idols and took papist vows. So, the huge wave of indentured servants and craftsmen .. were referred to as “Scots-Irish”, even though to tack the “irish” on .. was cause for a fight.

          • Larenzo1

            My originally ancestor and a couple relatives were placed on a ship in chains called the Good Speed that sailed from Liverpool right to this country and was sold into indentureship in South Carolina. I have a copy of the ships manifest. I have worked on these matters for years.

          • Achmed

            Yes, Larenzo1. Not all indentured servants, signed their own indenture in Ireland. Many Scots, a few irish, and even some germans were actually sold, into slavery … not indentured servitude. In England, they seemed to have most of their problems with Scots, that accounts for the, estimated, number of slaves being 80% Scottish.

          • Larenzo1

            I am talking about indentureship not slavery. Slaves actually received much better treatment than indentured servants because they were expensive valuable property. The indentured servant would be released at the conclusion of service unless he sold his services himself again. These are just facts from my family history. I could care less about percentages but has been a nice discussion. Merry Christmas.

        • Suresh

          so ???? They are too dumb to fightback Legally discriminating policies ? But jihadis and left goons can ?

    • Michelle

      (Botany Bay Rejects)That is the kind of comment that muslims make about Australia. Well Done! I think that you have forgotten the early days of the US as Australia was only found to be necessary for convict exile AFTER the American Revolution prevented its further use. BYT WTF has truth to do with it?

      • Achmed

        I don’t believe moslems, the vilest of ALL creatures, make comments like that about Australia. Rather, it’s anyone that has the briefest understanding of history. Australia used to be filled with hardworking, hard living, adventurous men. It’s sad to think that a once proud nation, filled with strong and brave men has fallen into a nation where a semi-automatic shotgun .. You know, the type eleven year old boys have .. is illegal. Australia has turned into a nation of moslem loving islamophiliacs.

  • Dano50

    Here’s a better idea.

    Arrest a few of the people wearing masks, fine them the entire fiscal amount of the destruction, and tell them the only way the fines will be reduced is if they turn in more fellow vandals to share the costs.

  • pdxnag

    The law then must surely allow him to seek contribution from the actual evil doers, with joint and several liability and include the cost of prosecuting the action.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Lets have a look at other instances where a police presence was required, the invoices and receipts as well.

  • Michelle

    I am curious to know just how many of the 500 actually work for a living as NON professional protestors and who do? From the mouth of one of the group they are on welfare and yet travel by air from site to site and have to be other funded.

  • Hussars2016

    Strange isn’t it. When they had the cartoon riots and other Muslim violent demonstrations, they never billed the Muslim Organizations for “security”.

    • Michael Jacobs

      That’s because the Muslim groups were NOT the organizers of the event — Ms. Geller was (in TX) and Milo was (in OZ). See my direct comment to the article.

      • Hussars2016

        So you are saying Milo and Pamela organized the cartoon riots?
        Wow?!

  • LeslieFish

    Don’t you guys have some decently smart lawyers? Research similar cases from history, and then take a complaint of unequal treatment to court.

  • Drew the Infidel

    This is an old leftist trick, advancing their ideology by getting others to pay for it. The biggest sticking point in the current tax reform debate is allowing the deduction of exorbitant state and local taxes on income tax returns in leftist high tax states, making taxpayers in all 50 states foot the bill.

  • Patti York

    It is a form of racketeering, he should REFUSE to pay them.

  • Refuse to pay. Eff em.

  • Mark Huber

    Hey, Hey, we won’t pay. Not Today, Not Ever, The Day after never.

  • Michael Jacobs

    The protesters, whether individually or in groups, were NOT the organizers of the event —
    Milo was. It is very common and perfectly acceptable and non-discriminatory for public
    police departments to charge the organizers when they are asked to
    provide security for a large gathering or event, whether it is of a
    political character or not. Rock concerts, sports events, trade shows —
    they all are billed for the TIME of the officers who are assigned to
    their security detail. It has nothing to do with whether any violence
    actually occurs — it just has to do with the size of the gathering,
    above and beyond what the public treasury should normally be expected to
    pay for general public security services, at the level of staffing that
    part of town or venue would require when it is NOT the scene of an
    organized gathering. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
    On the
    other hand, if Milo were being charged MORE because some anti-Milo
    protesters committed violence, than he would have been charged for
    organizing a peaceful gathering, then he may have grounds to complain.
    The violence was not his fault. But the mere SIZE OF THE CROWD _was_
    predictable in advance, and is just part of the cost of organizing a
    large public event. A leftist event, or a Muslim event, or a completely non-political, non-religious event, would be charged the same way.
    I do note in the article that Milo’s organizers ANTICIPATED being charged up to $150,000 for security at this event. They were actually charged only $50,000. Don’t make me come over there and give y’all an attitude adjustment for being the kind of freeloaders you always accuse the leftists and Muslims of being. Pay your way.

    • Cai

      A leftist event would have NO WHERE NEAR the level of possible violence from those of the right, that an event of the right has from the totalitarian left mob. As for the freeloaders, the evidence is there for all those of reasonable intelligence to see!!

      • Michael Jacobs

        As noted, the fees assessed have to do with the number of police assigned to the gathering, which in turn is based on the size, and I would be very surprised (and Milo would have a right to be upset) if different fees were charged for a leftist vs. a rightist political gathering, or more for a political gathering than for, say, a rock concert or trade show. It just has to do with the size of the crowd expected at any organized event.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          Gee, who decides how the fees are assessed and ‘number of police assigned to the gathering’? Who decides what constitutes a “leftist vs. a rightist political gathering”? What if the city council of Dearbornistan, Michigan decides that any event critical of islum requires a 500 million outlay by the organisers? Might that not put a damper on one’s right to freely assemble?
          You’ll make an excellent muslum collaborator in out totalitarian muslum future.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Like any good fascist you want to make people pay to have the right to freely assemble don’t you Mahmoud?

      • Michael Jacobs

        Freedom is not free, Mr. Tyranny, if the person exercising their freedom places special needs on the services provided by the government to help get his message out to the public. Should the U.S. Postal Service mail all of Milo’s publications for free, too? Or would he rather have appeared with no police protection at all? Sorry, that’s not an option, and not just because of being the specific person he is, or because of the expected right-wing content of his speech, but just because the legislature, in its wisdom, has deemed that ANY public gathering over a certain size needs (A) a permit, and (B) the organizers to pay for the additional security services required to protect the public safety during the event. But, we live in a democracy! If you want to do away with such laws, feel free to petition the government for a redress of that grievance! Personally, I think it’s a fine and non-discriminatory law that helps preserve the freedoms of everybody, including the speaker, not to be thrown into the middle of a riot without any public-safety presence to tone it down. Or maybe that kind of anarchy is what you consider “freedom,” I guess? I prefer at least a bit of order with my freedom.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          Who decides how much people have to pay to peaceably assembly Ahmed? You? Your f’ing muslum brethren? A compromised, corrupt US government?

          The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the
          United States Congress from enacting legislation that would abridge the
          right of the people to assemble peaceably.[1] The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution makes this prohibition applicable to state governments.[2]

          The Supreme Court of the United States has held that the
          First Amendment protects the right to conduct a peaceful public
          assembly.[3]
          The right to assemble is not, however, absolute. Government officials
          cannot simply prohibit a public assembly in their own discretion,[4]
          but the government can impose restrictions on the time, place, and
          manner of peaceful assembly, provided that constitutional safeguards
          are met.[5]
          Time, place, and manner restrictions are permissible so long as they
          “are justified without reference to the content of the regulated
          speech, . . . are narrowly tailored to serve a significant governmental
          interest, and . . . leave open ample alternative channels for
          communication of the information.”[6]

            Thank you, Mr. Tyranny! I couldn’t agree more; that’s exactly what I said. I’m glad my post encouraged you to do some actual reading on the subject. Yes, charging a fee is part of the “reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions” which the US Constitution deems permissible for a local government to place upon a gathering of persons, so long as it is “content-neutral” and not keyed to the nature of the gathering. That’s why I said Milo WOULD have a good case to complain, if the local authorities had imposed DIFFERENT restrictions on him than they do generally for, say, rock concerts or trade shows, because it was a POLITICAL gathering, or, worse, because it was a RIGHT-WING political gathering? We are in agreement, here. Oh, by the way, did you notice that this affront to Milo’s sense of entitlement occurred in AUSTRALIA, not in the US? Though I imagine the Aussies have similar rules, being a Western democracy and all. Thanks for the comment!

  • Sherry Pennington

    This is BS and even an idiot would recognize that fact !!!! Milo shouldn’t be made to pay for the actions of thugs.

  • Logic PrObe

    What a joke!

  • Merchantseamen

    Well…if you did not sign a contract Asking for their “security” if that’s what you want to call it. I say kiss off. Now…the powers that be down under could ban him from entering the country for non payment.
