175 Disobedient Occupy Chicago Protesters Arrested For not Leaving Grant Park & Breaking City Ordinance
Sure they are just like the Tea Party, these folks have no respect for authority or the laws.
175 Occupy Chicago protesters were arrested in Chicago, IL for not abiding by city ordinances. They were previously warned by police to leave the park and that they were violating municipal code. Most of the arrests were peaceful, although many protesters shouted that the police “were the instruments of the one percent.” What respect of authority from the Obama supported “Occupy” protesters.
Chicago police arrested about 175 Occupy Chicago protestors in Congress Plaza just after 1 a.m. Sunday, about 90 minutes after police issued their first warning that the group was violating municipal code.
Police completed the last arrests and cleared the plaza of protesters at 3:30 am, more than two hours after arrests began.
The protesters will likely be cited with municipal violations and face fines, police said.
Barack Obama, the Community Agitator in Chief better hope the “Occupy” protest crowd in the US do not become like their follow European brethren. If the protests turn violent like in Europe, Obama and the Democrats will have even bigger hell to pay in the 2012 elections than they already face.
