News with a personal touch
Suddenly police cars with sirens blaring passed us, headed for what appeared to be a small group about 1/2 block away. We all thought it was a mugging or some such.
Nope - 'twas an "Occupy" demonstration, with perhaps 60-80 folks in attendance, all of them demonstrating peacefully.
I counted 19 police cars.
Four people were arrested... for no reason that we could discern.
Seemed a bit of an over-reaction to a small, peaceful demonstration.
Here's a pic (police cars visible; "rioters" not):
