11/2    "NYC arrest records: Many Occupy Wall Street protesters live in luxury"
        http://www.csua.org/u/uml (news.yahoo.com)
        'Many "Occupy Wall Street" protesters arrested in New York City
        "occupy" more luxurious homes than their "99 percent" rhetoric might
        suggest, a Daily Caller investigation has found.'
        \_ "Many"? How many? This is a classic weasel word.
           \_ Sigh.  RTA if you indeed care.
              \_ Yeah, I read it. The answer is not there. $1,850/mo is not
                 much of a place in NYC, probably a studio or one bedroom.
                 \_ So I guess by "We are the 99 percent" they really mean "We
                    are the 99 percent of NYC".
                    \_ I am pretty sure even $1850/mo is still in the lower
                       99% of rents, though it might be in the top 50%.
        \_ I'd protest if I weren't on the verge of poverty and working to
           sustain myself! What a bullshit article.
        \_ I'll bet some of them have phones, televisions and refrigerators
           in their homes. Fat cats!
           \_ Well, iPhones.

See latest photos Many "Occupy Wall Street" protesters arrested in New York City "occupy" more luxurious homes than their "99 percent" rhetoric might suggest, a Daily Caller investigation has found. For each of the 984 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in New York City between September 18 and October 15, police collected and filed an information sheet recording the arrestee's name, age, sex, criminal charge, home address and -- in most cases -- race. The Daily Caller has obtained all of this information from a source in the New York City government. Among addresses for which information is available, single-family homes listed on those police intake forms have a median value of $305,000 -- a far higher number than the $185,400 median value of owner-occupied housing units in the United States. Some of the homes where "Occupy" arrestees reside, viewed through Google Maps and the Multiple Listing Service real estate database, are the definition of opulence. com, TheDC estimated property values and rents for 87 percent of the homes and 59 percent of the apartments listed in the arrest records. Even in the nation's currently depressed housing market, at least 95 of the protesters' residences are worth approximately $500,000 or more. The median age of "Occupy" protesters taken into custody is 27 years. Most of the arrests, it should be noted, were for nonviolent offenses. The arrest intake documents show that arrestees came to New York from all over the country but particularly from the Northeast. " Hundreds were arrested on October 1 for obstructing traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge. While it would not be fair to conclude that the arrested protesters are fully representative of a movement that is not completely understood, this information forms the most complete snapshot yet of the demonstrations' more militant participants. It also reinforces the persistent critique of protesters as entitled, upper-class agitators with few legitimate grievances. highlighted signs of wealth among the throngs in Zuccotti Park. "Sleeping beside the hardcore activists are increasing numbers of wealthy students turning up to make the most of the party atmosphere, drugs and free food," reporters Paul Bentley and Micela McLucas wrote in October. "While they dress down to blend in, the youngsters' privileged backgrounds are revealed by glimpses of expensive gadgetry or the absent minded mention of their private schools during heated political debates." org, a website dedicated to help organize and spread information about the protests, told TheDC when asked about participants from wealthier backgrounds. "That said, a (non-random) survey on our site revealed that our visitors literally are the 99% in regards to economic realities." The national median home value of $185,400 reflects US Census statistics from the years 2005 through 2009, the last year data were available. TheDC was able to estimate home values and apartment rents for 659 of the 972 residences. Many addresses proved to be nonexistent, and a few were not provided to police. TheDC has elected not to publish personally identifying information. Gracie Ferrell and Meg Gasvoda contributed reporting to this story.
