Dead man in Salt Lake City... Tuberculosis in Atlanta... 'Zuccotti Lung' on Wall Street... Suicide in Vermont... Murder in Oakland...
OAKLAND, Calif. Police are investigating a fatal shooting just outside the Occupy Oakland encampment in Northern California and the apparent suicide of a military veteran at an Occupy encampment in Vermont’s largest city.
They should legalize marijuana in California. That would fix at least one of the publicity problems OWS in Oakland is having.
Move along! There’s nothing to see here!/s
"Tonight's incident underscores the reason why the encampment must end. The risks are too great," Quan said. "We need to return (police) resources to addressing violence throughout the city. It's time for the encampment to end. Camping is a tactic, not a solution."
Say it, Mayor Quan... these Occupies are disasters waiting to happen, and then who will get blamed? How the heck is it that we aren't hearing similar complaints from bigger cities? The more cops busy watching Occupy camps the less can be
watching out for law and orderbringing in revenue from speeding tickets and the like.
Are ANY of the locations NOT run by Democrats and corrupt Unions?
“DEATH, DISEASE PLAGUE ‘OCCUPY’ PROTESTS”
Should I feel badly?
Left out the rape(s)...
Too bad for neighbors who may not necessarily have wanted these camps, but their hands were tied.
SALT LAKE CITY — A dead body was found in a tent at Pioneer Park Friday morning.
The body was identified as a male member of the Occupy SLC group, but Salt Lake City police officers are saying it is not suspicious, but the cause is unknown.
A medical examiner is on the way to the scene.
More details will be provided when they become available.

See, just when you were beginning to think there was no justice in the world.
Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB), said Fulton County Services Director Matthew McKenna in a written statement to CBS Atlanta. One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition. All person(s) identified as positive have begun treatment and are being monitored to ensure that medication is taken as directed.
The Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless has indicated that two cases have been made public knowledge to the group, the first coming from someone who contracted the disease in September. The identities of the people who have contracted the disease, however, have not been disclosed by the health department to this point.
Protesters Coming Down With the “Zuccotti Lung”
With wintry weather poised to swoop into the cramped outdoor quarters of Occupy Wall Street protesters, it may not be long before more campers catch what’s being called “Zuccotti lung.”
That’s what demonstrators have dubbed the sickness that seems to be spreading among them at an unpleasantly high rate these days: “It’s a real thing,” Willie Carey, 28, told the New York Times.
With little sleep in cold conditions, cigarettes and drinks being passed from mouth to mouth, and few opportunities to wash hands, Zuccotti Park may now just be the best place to catch respiratory viruses, norovirus (also known as the winter vomiting virus) and tuberculosis, according to one doctor.
The damp clothing and cardboard signs wet with rain are also breeding grounds for mold. Some protesters are urinating in bottles and leaving food trash discarded throughout the campground, providing further opportunities for nastiness.
Pretty much everything here is a good way to get sick, Salvatore Cipolla, 23, from Long Island, told the Times. Itll definitely thin the herd.
Vermin are known disease vectors.
Folks, you are witnessing the Third World America, that Obama and the Democrat Party are striving so hard to bring about. You better wake up America!!! Obama is very effectively destroying America piece by piece, day by day, minute by minute, just as rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louis farrakhan have ordained him to do!!! Your children, grandchildren and children yet to come are not going to live or be birthed into the great America that once was!!! Sad!!!
Well, that’s three of the Four Horsemen...
What, every crazy lady with 20 cats hasn’t brought her zoo there? That would take care of most mouse problems, if not rat problems.
Well, we know that these diseases will spread to innocent people, so no, I don't feel badly for them, but innocent people will be affected.
The Governor's of these states have an obligation to the majority of the citizens, to shut down these unhealthy, filth & germ laden havens!
