Nearly 50 protesters, including over a dozen senior citizens, were arrested after joining Occupy Chicago and blocking an intersection at Federal Plaza yesterday. Because of obvious health concerns, protesters were arrested peacefully and without any theatrics. Is this why the Chicago Police Department was spying on Occupy Chicago? Was it out of fear that they were tapping into another age demographic?
