Two #Occupy Goons Arrested For Attack on Counter Protester WIth “Get a Job” Sign

The Washington Post reported:

Two Occupy D.C. protesters in McPherson Square were charged with assault Friday after they allegedly ripped a sign out of the hands of a counter-protester, according to the U.S. Park Police.

For the second consecutive day, a man has held signs stating “get a job” and “we want R Park back” in front of the encampment at McPherson Square on K Street NW.

According to police, the protesters were arrested after they ripped the signs out of man’s hands Friday afternoon.

“They didn’t hit me, just knocked out the sign,” said Joe Bellows, 40. “It’s been two and half months. Why should they be allowed to be here?”

Police did not immediately identify the people arrested. After the arrests, three Park Police officers took positions near Bellows as he continued his protest.
