Early Thursday afternoon US Army veteran and SF Occupier Nick Anthony Shaw apprehended the suspect wanted in the stabbing of Occupy San Francisco member “Boston” earlier this week.
As Shaw physically contained the suspect, nearby policemen were summoned by Shaw and fellow protesters, and the suspect was arrested. Shaw later filed a report at the police department.
*Continued Repression at Protest Site
Police continue to interpret a century-old anti-lodging law in such a way as to infringe on the rights of the protest to continue in the rain. This past Tuesday they insisted on removing a canopy and tarp during pouring rain which resulted in the destruction of the protest’s petitions and signs. Tonight further rain is expected and the protesters expect the police to continue their misinterpretation of the law in order to stop the protest’s ability to maintain its activity.
Several hours after Shaw’s police arrest, the police insisted a second table with anti-fracking petitions be removed.
