Another Death Results in Occupy Salt Lake City Shut Down

Another Death Results in Occupy Salt Lake City Shut Down

Local Media List The Death In Paragraph #5.

By Dell Hill

At least for the moment, Occupy Salt Lake City Utah is history.

You’ll notice that the death of a human being managed to make it to paragrahph #5 of this report “somewhat slanted” report.

“Three main Occupy SLC organizers were arrested at Pioneer Park around 7 p.m., after attempting to re-erect a tent after Salt Lake City police officers had cleared the tent village.

Jesse Fruhwirth, Michael Wilson and Rachel Carter moved to the southeast corner of the park and began pitching a blue tent. Officers immediately apprehended and handcuffed the trio. As they were led to a police van, park protesters shouted: "Thank you, Jesse." "Thank you, Michael." "Thank you, Rachel."

The organizers’ resistance was the closest thing to a standoff in the 90 minutes since a massive squadron of more than 70 officers from Salt Lake City and County arrived at the park about 5:30 p.m. As of 8 p.m., 19 people had been arrested during the sweep of the park.

Police Chief Chris Burbank executed the action after Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and officials from the police, parks, public works and other agencies discussed the situation.

The city’s order to vacate the park was handed down Friday, just hours after a homeless man was found dead in a tent, apparently due to carbon monoxide poisoning and a drug overdose.”
