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.
