Government that allowed Occupiers should pay for them

Why so much non-policing labour required for Occupy

I have a difficult time understanding why the city government that encouraged the Occupiers who camped in its downtown square that gets tax revenue from the businesses and government offices the mob protested against as well as from restaurants and food stores they shopped at thinks others should pay for policing and cleanup.

This may be a rare case where Esquimalt is justified in complaining to Victoria about policing costs, since the Victoria government didn’t discourage the mob.

And I ask why so much non-policing labour was required?
