175 Occupiers Arrested In Chicago; 90 Arrests In NY

By Susan Duclos

In Chicago when the Occupiers refuse to heed police warnings and continue to violate the law, they are arrested and physically removed.

Chicago Tribune reports:

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.

There we also 74 arrests in New York, according to NY Daily News and 40 detained in Arizona, via Gawker.

NBC News York says the NY number is up to 90 this weekend and quote a tourist:

Sandra Fox, 69, of Baton Rouge, La., stood, confused, on 46th Street with a ticket for "Anything Goes" in her hand as riot police pushed a knot of about 200 shouting protesters toward her.

"I think it's horrible what they're doing," she said of the protesters. "These people need to go get jobs."

I guess she doesn't understand the Occupiers don't want to earn their own money they feel they are entitled to other people's money. (Click here to see Occupier's reasoning on wanting someone else to pay for his college tuition).
