DA: 3 Occupy Denver activists charged with felonies

The beat goes on. Yet more felony indictments in the wake of arrests at one of the Occupy locales.

The district attorney’s office announced Thursday that a 28-year-old man has been charged with two felony counts of inciting a riot and one misdemeanor count of obstruction for allegedly blocking a police car and and telling others to riot. He has two other cases pending from two different dates in October — unlawful conduct on public property and unlawful sexual contact — according to the press release.

Another 30-year-old man was charged with a felony count of second-degree assault on a police officer — as well as misdemeanor charges of obstruction, resisting arrest and engaging in a riot — from the same day. The district attorney claimed this man grabbed a law enforcement officer from behind and tried to hit him and wrestle him to the ground.

A third man, who is 26 years old, also was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer. That charge stems from an October 29 incident in which the man allegedly tried to use a stick to hit an officer who was trying to arrest him.

Just keep repeating to yourself. They are just like the Tea Party. They are just like the Tea Party.
