50 arrested in Occupy Wall Street demonstration
Source: cnn.com

New York police arrested 50 protesters Saturday on what organizers from Occupy Wall Street were dubbing a day to "re-occupy," coinciding with the movement's three-month anniversary.

Those arrested were charged with trespassing after they attempted to scale a fence belonging to a church in lower Manhattan, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said. <snip>

The fence protected an area of Duarte Park that is owned by Trinity Church. Though supportive of the movement, the Rev. James H. Cooper, the rector of the church, said he does not believe setting up a tent city at Duarte Park enhances its mission or that of the protesters. <snip>

Earlier, Occupy Wall Street protesters gathered in Duarte Park for speeches and music. Protesters called Saturday "part of a call to re-occupy in the wake of the coordinated attacks and subsequent evictions of occupations across the nation and around the world," according to their website.

2. A bit of explanation...
"Occupy Wall Street #D17: Why Trinity? Here's Why."

"Occupy Wall Street's #D17 action was this past weekend. If you listened to the mainstream media, you might have heard stories about ragtag protesters demonstrating against a church. Missing from their stories is a retired Bishop Episcopal Bishop who was the first arrested and the true reasons as to why Occupy Wall Street included Trinity Church in their 3 month anniversary day of action."

3. I support every union except the police unions
When they do this to unarmed, harmless people, they don't deserve the rights that OWS is fighting for.

4.  The police are out of control,across America
"To serve and protect" should include all of our citizens not just the wealthy criminals.
