Occupy protests at Supreme Court, 12 arrested

Supreme Court Police arrested a dozen Occupy protesters Friday afternoon after they destroyed a police barrier, pushed past a police line and sprinted up the steps of the high court all in violation of federal law.
The protest was organized by the advocacy group Move to Amend, which advocates for a Constitutional amendment that would strike down the Citizens United decision.
After a short rally across the street, protesters moved to the Supreme Court building, where police had set up metal barricades.
Protesters pulled the barricades back and jumped on them, and, after a half-hour standoff, pushed past the police and ran up the steps. About 50 to 60 Occupiers cheered and shouted slogans from the steps until police moved in and a scuffle ensued. Several protesters sat on the steps and refused to move; they were arrested as police formed a line across the steps.
