2. Here's an answer you're not going to like to hear...
The Police aren't trying to break up the protests, and haven't arrested anyone for protesting. The only arrests have been for blocking traffic or refusing to stop the "occupation" component of Zuccotti Park, which was violating a variety of health and fire codes, passed years ago by Democratic City Councils and Democratic Mayors.

The OWS people have focused so much on the "occupy" component of their protest, I sometimes think they've lost their focus on the "Wall Street" component.
