Occupy movement arrest total now over 6,000

Occupy Denver arrest, Nov 11, 2011
After hovering just under the 6,000 arrest mark for a week, the Occupy Wall Street movement roared past it yesterday, thanks to 37 busts at a Brooklyn protest. The Occupy Arrests site now lists 6,025 confirmed arrests.

As I've said many times before, I'm still waiting for that first Tea Party arrest.

On Tuesday, there was another Occupy death, it was the movement's tenth fatality.

Sexual assaults are among the crimes that have been reported at Occupy camps. You can read about the OccuArsonist here. And you can learn about one of the Occupy assaults on a police officer here.

Pictured is an Occupy Denver arrest that I witnessed.
