Denver Cracks Down On Occupiers Like New York Was Too Corrupt To Do

By Susan Duclos

More Occupier news as Denver does what New York didn't have the guts to do. No "elected officials" threatening people to stop a crack down on unlawful Occupiers in Denver as they did in New York.

Via Meredith Dake at Big Government:

From 4-5:30 a.m. CT I watched a live stream of the clearing of the Occupy Denver protest via News9-Denver . On live television I watched as, what the reporter described as “dozens”, officers dressed in full riot gear calmly walked through the streets and began tearing down tents. The reporter had been there since earlier in the evening and revealed some very interesting facts about how the protesters prepared for this early morning’s events:

  • Protesters had multiple lawyers on site for days offering legal advice. Those lawyers were there and shown on camera documenting and monitoring police actions.
  • Protesters dipped their bandanas, which they used to cover their face, in vinegar in order to negate the effects of tear gas.
  • Protesters distributed a number to call in case of arrest. Several of the protesters sharpied the number on their arms and legs.

I’ll have to check my notes, but can someone remind me the last time a Tea Party protest required on-site lawyers and tear gas prevention?

Also it is noteworthy that Big Government is crowdsourcing thousands of emails that "Expose #OccupyWallStreet Conspiracy to ‘Destabalize’ Global Markets, Governments."

More on that here where the BG site provides links to the email archive for crowdsourcing.

Stay tuned to their main page to keep track of what they find with the public's help going through all the emails.
