OCCUPY PROTESTERS ATTACK POLICE After Man Shot Dead at Protest Camp (Video)

Occupy Burlington protesters attacked police tonight after a protester was shot dead at their squatters camp.
The police were trying to clear the park after the shooting.

The Burlington Free Press reported:

Occupiers have clashed with police in City Hall Park this evening after police tried to close down the encampment following a fatal shooting.

Mayor Bob Kiss talked police into releasing a detained woman. The situation intensified after a meeting between occupiers and police at 6 p.m. in City Hall.

Police said rules for the encampment may change and that police would need to take control of the park for at least 24 hours to investigate the death.
