Three more people were arrested at Occupy DC's new campsite in front of Bank of America on the 11th of April. Several cops have now admitted the arrests are illegal, as a charge of blockign a sidewal requires a 100% block from building to street, which has never happened there. One occupier says this has even been admitted to on camera, though I could not find that in the published Livestream video. Perhaps the identity of whoever said this on camera is being out of necessity protected, so the brass can't fire them before this all goes to court? Apparently the cops are getting calls to remove protesters, legally or otherwise, before Bank of America opens each day,
Arrestees have been released within hours, and lawsuits are being drawn up against DC for the unlawful arrests.
