Safe Mode: On
Occupy Louisville Arrests

A police spokesman says officers were called to the bank Saturday afternoon in response to a complaint that protesters were blocking the entrance. The video shows several scuffles as police officers first attempt to keep the bank doors clear, then take several demonstrators into the bank for questioning.

Five Occupy Louisville members were arrested. All were charged with disorderly conduct; two of them were also charged with third-degree assault and resisting arrest. All but one have been released on their own recognizance.

The protest was meant to persuade Chase to end foreclosures in the area. The arrests mark the first major clash between Occupy and the LMPD. Aside from a dispute over permits for the Occupy encampment downtown, demonstrators’ relationship with the city has been fairly cordial.

Some demonstrators say the arresting officers were overly aggressive. There were no serious injuries reported.

  • These people are out there to have a confrontation. You can see they want to storm the officers and free the protesters with violence.

    You can see even one man trying to manhandle a officer to the ground.

  • There is absolutely no reason they should be there. Occupy a-holes have no job and no money to put in the bank. If you have no money, there is no reason for you to be near the bank.

    They should be protesting the food lines.

      chase bank profited off of throwing poor people out of their homes. And then from massive bailout checks. If you think that's alright, well, good for you man.

    • @misterpoopy Apparently you think the banks should buy homes and just give them away. Well, it doesn't work that way. A bank is not a non-profit charity, they are businesses. They foreclose on houses when people don't pay their mortgage for months, that's the homeowner's fault, not the bank's. And they lose money on foreclosures. The house is generally auctioned off for less than the original loan money they paid out. I you can't afford a house, don't buy one, it's pretty simple.

    • @misterpoopy want to protest? protest barney frank and his oversight of fannie and freddie mac. also, you might want to protest the politicians that voted to give the bailout to the banks.

      why do all you leftists not stick the blame where it needs to be--the policy makers?

    • @misterpoopy - just an FYI;

      I dislike JP Morgan Chase for my own personal reasons however JP Morgan Chase was financially healthy and had plenty of capital when the market collapsed and did not need the funds from TARP.

      Jamie Dimon was adamant about not accepting TARP funds and pretty pissed off at the strong armed nationalization of the banks but was essentially forced in to it by Paulson to prevent a run on the other less capitalized banks being propped up with TARP funds.

      JP Morgan Chase More..

    • @gdstaples

      You seem to know a bit more on this subject than I do. I'll admit that I may have been mistaken in my criticism of their acceptance of TARP funds.

      My father, a real estate agent, deals with JP Morgan Chase on home foreclosures quite often and some of the stories I have heard have admittedly swayed my opinion in regards to foreclosure practices.

  • The citizens of Louisville are fortunate to have such dedicated officers protecting them. It's not easy having to deal with zealots and they showed great restraint.

    I would imagine the irony is lost on the OWS protesters that the shame they announce is their own.

      You are another FUCKING IDIOT - a shining example of what our public school system produces. I went to college, fuck boy. I work for a living, fuck boy. I pay taxes, fuck boy.

      And while there is greed on wall street in corruption in politics, I don't believe government should give me any thing I want. I don't think government should have paid of my student loan for me.

      I was raised to be self-reliant and responsible for my own actions and decisions.

      Go fuck yourself and then More..

    • @waywordson OOH ya work and pay taxes, holy fuckin shit ma! And college too? Oh boy georgie! You're preaching to the choir. These people are jobless and pissed off. Just because you saw some stupid looking kids getting arrested at a protest doesn't mean they're all unruly tit sucking assholes. Nobody there wants everything handed to them or somebody to pay off their student loans. And that doesn't include the stupid idiots the media hand picked to answer "Why are you here?". How about More..

  • Do these maggots even know they're socialists? Why the fuck does anybody owe anybody anything at all?

    I am beholden to no man and no man is beholden to me. What makes these losers think that somebody owes them anything.

    Scum of the earth.

  • hahaha "he hit me" "he hit me" as the cop has his hands in front of the camera. These people are just dumb. I also love how they think that getting any of this on camera will help them. What they did get on video is an account of assault on an officer. I hope they all go to jail.
