Protest Peacefully, Get Discounts in NYC

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg thinks he's found a way to pin down rowdy protesters at the Republican National Convention - by offering them a powder-blue button that labels them "Peaceful Political Activists."

In a bid to tame potentially disruptive protests, Bloomberg and tourism officials Tuesday offered a unique package of discounts on hotels, restaurants, plays - even cut-rate entry to the Museum of Sex - to the best-behaved demonstrators.

Vic Police should of tried a tactic like this during the 2000 WEF protests in Melbourne. Half price discounts to Wobbies World & the Werribee Zoo. Does Wobbies World still exist, somewhere.....?
