    I’m very disappointed in Mayor Becker’s and Chief Burbank’s action against the Occupy SLC protest. I have no doubt that the city powers have been waiting for an excuse to shut down the protest, and the death is just the excuse they were waiting for. The supposed sanitation issue appears to be yet another smoke screen to shut down effective protest.

    The show of force calling in UPD was unnecessary and heavy-handed. It looks to me as if Salt Lake City has been coordinating its actions with Portland and other municipalities that would rather have Occupy go away.
