"At about 2 p.m. Thursday, police and rescue personnel were called to the Occupy protest tent city in Burlington's City Hall Park for a report of a person with a gunshot wound.""Police say a 35-year-old man was taken to the hospital where he died. The victim has been identified, but police will not release his name until his family is notified.""At this point, police tell us they believe the shooting was self-inflicted. No word yet on whether it was accidental or a suicide. Burlington Deputy Police Chief Andi Higbee said the public is not believed to be at risk, but the circumstances of the shooting are still being investigated."

These idiots have gone from being a virtual plague on America to a literal one.
The OWS protesters are "Occupying" the local homeless shelter, and not the park near the business district? And how can they tell the protesters from the homeless? The homeless smell better and are willing to help out around the shelter?Quote:
The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease.
Edit: Nevermind. She wasn't even really arrested. I was hoping that she had gotten the whole Rikers Island experience, but no such luck.
SALT LAKE CITY -- A dead body was found in a tent at Pioneer Park Friday morning.

A medical examiner is on the way to the scene.
