Occupy Vancouver Protesters Clash With Police – Lash Out at Camera Crews After Protester Dies of Overdose (Video)

A woman at Occupy Vancouver was found dead on Saturday in her tent. The protester apparently died of a drug overdose.

The protesters clashed with police and rescue crews when they arrived at the scene. Protesters also harassed camera crews who were reporting the story.
In the video the protesters harass a local camera crew and lash out at police.

From the video:
A 20-ish year old woman has died after being found unresponsive in a tent at the Occupy Vancouver encampment at the Vancouver Art Gallery. “I thought she was sleeping” a distraught woman told onlookers during attempts by police and paramedics to resuscitate the woman.

Some protesters and residents of the tent city became angry and hostile towards photographers and media personnel.

In a strange twist of events, the band D.O.A. began performing a live outdoor concert about 20 metres away while police set up crime scene tape around the now-collapsed tent.
