The latest it’s-totally-not-because-I-hate-dirty-hippies-at-all excuse for busting up one of Occupy Wall Street’s regional offshoots:

“Come at 6 o’clock in the morning, make all the free speech you want until 10 at night,” said [Colorado Governor John] Hickenlooper, who stepped away from a charity event to talk to the reporters. “But we can’t let you stay overnight. With all these tents … with these tents all next to each other. They could catch fire.

“What happens if suddenly one catches on fire, suddenly four or five tents burn. Who are you guys going to blame? You guys are going to be all over us like white on rice. In a second. The whole community will say how can you take that risk?”

All those tents so close together, rubbing up against each other, they could totally get ignited by friction and stuff.
