SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police have arrested nearly 80 Occupy protesters who had taken over an empty building and apparently planned to stay there long-term.

The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/Hc1ZqA) reports that officers in riot gear stormed the two-story building around 1:15 p.m. Monday after breaking through a barricade the activists had built.

Police say no one was injured during the arrests.

The building is owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco and had recently been used as a music education facility. The protesters entered the structure Sunday after holding a rally and march nearby.

How can someone be arrested in a vacant building?

If it’s vacant, there would be no one inside to arrest.

Free speech doesn’t extend to breaking and entering a building that you don’t own.

Trespassing is just one law they broke. They should be in jail for a long time for this crap.
