When they say,
"Protest group from New York
Occupy Wall Street is a protest movement against high profits in the financial-services industry and economic inequality. It began with the occupation of Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan in September 2011"
The real reason should say 'take money from the rich and give it to those
that pay no federal income tax'.
BTW: How many Tea Party members were arrested? NONE!
How many OWS? Over 5000.
How many OWS pay federal income tax? Very few.How many Tea Parters pay federal income tax? Most.

Police and Occupy Wall Street protesters clash at New York park where movement began six months ago
- Protesters gathered at Zuccotti Park on six-month anniversary of movement
- Dozens of people handcuffed and led out of park

On the six-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, protesters swarmed its birthplace –Zuccotti Park – again sparking the cat-and-mouse clashes between New York City police officers and demonstrators.
The sweep of the park by police just before midnight capped a day of demonstrations and marching in lower Manhattan. There was no official word on the number of arrests but dozens of people were handcuffed and led out of the park.
Earlier in the day, 15 people were arrested and three officers suffered injuries, police said.
An unused public transit bus was brought in to cart away about a dozen demonstrators in plastic handcuffs.

Several arrests: A bus was brought in to remove the arrested protesters
One female under arrest apparently suffered a seizure and had difficulty breathing. She was taken away in an ambulance to be treated.
For hours, the demonstrators had been chanting and holding impromptu meetings in the park to celebrate the anniversary of the movement that has brought attention to economic inequality, as police mainly kept their distance.
But New York Police Det. Brian Sessa said the tipping point came when the protesters started breaking the park rules.
