And as for the police response to the protests, well, that too has proved to be creative and unpredictable. Seven individuals had been arrested as of Monday, according to Bloomberg.
But up to five people have been issued a citation for violating an 1845 “antimask law” that prohibits masked gatherings of two or more people, except during a “a masquerade party or like entertainment,” The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing police.
“Two masked protesters were arrested Saturday for trying to enter a building used by Bank of America Corp. (BAC),” police spokesman Paul Brown told Bloomberg.
The Journal also reported that another two people were arrested for writing a Gandhi quote on the sidewalk with chalk, one for disorderly conduct and the other for graffiti. Videos of protesters being cuffed and hauled away have also begun showing up on YouTube.
