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
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."
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.
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.
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.”
