Time to Occupy Detroit: A Win-Win Situation

Note: This post is meant to be humorous. Please don't take it too seriously.
The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowd is getting run out of cities left and right these days.
Seems major, thriving cities don't like shanty towns, no matter how noble their intentions.
There has to be a way to avoid the arrests, injuries, and pepper-sprayings.
So I had an idea.
How about shifting the movement to Occupy Detroit?

It makes sense if you think about it.

It's unlikely Detroit would kick you out. That's a major plus.

In fact, I bet OWS could get preferential treatment, including the use of abandoned homes and businesses in which to set up your society and be able to organize and run meetings in proper circumstances (instead of the lobby of the Deutche Bank building in NYC).

Just look at some of these available locations:
The David Whitney Building
Michigan Central Station
United Artists Theater
Also, the city of Detroit would benefit. A new influx of people would provide for opportunities to set up small business to sell necessary food and supplies. These would be passionate people who would likely vote for change and could get involved locally to improve the city.

So think about it, OWS.

Isn't it time to Occupy Detroit?
