Occupy Burlington Protester Fatally Shot at Rally; Protesters Say He Killed Himself
Pundit Press ^ | 11/10/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 11/10/2011 5:43:40 PM PST by therightliveswithus

According to Burlington police, a man was found dead at Occupy Burlington today. On the man's body was a gun shot wound, which ended his life.

Although the police investigation has just started, Occupy protesters insist that the man, whose name has not yet been released, had taken his own life. Burlington "Occupiers" clashed with the police after they had arrived on scene.

Much of the fracas was because Burlington law enforcement has stated that they need to take control of City Hall Park, where the protesters are being held, for twenty-four hours to investigate the death. Many protesters have refused to move, stressing once again that the man's death was "self-inflicted."

One of the Occupiers called the man's death a "tragedy of society." Another vowed that Occupy Burlington would go on, stating, "We’re not about to stop because of this."

Police have stated that there is no threat to the public. They have also said that rules of the encampment might be "changed" because of the incident.

I thought all those Marxists were against private gun ownership.

Sounds like the Occupy Vermont crowd don't care if somebody gets shot.

Hmm ~ gives me some ideas. Bet the cops are thinking the same thing.

This sh!t has gone FAR ENOUGH! END IT! NOW!! Just who is in control in any of these cities, the city administration or a smelly, dope-smoking, hostile law-breaking mob?

Thought the same thing. Equal protection under the law. 14th amendment means nothing. Add that to the list.

No, Marxists oppose non-Marxists having guns until the revolution is over.

I see no one has considered that there may have been an argument ‘in the tent’ and that someone else shot the
‘vet’, and that this is why they are trying to keep police out.

The article reads like it was written by a 12-year-old. Stupid does breed stupid.

I think tuberculosis is thinning the Marxist herd.

Can’t recall which OWS city, but TB broke out yesterday at one protest.

In Vermont, the administrations generally ARE the smelly dope-smoking mob.

I know, I live there :/ .
