Two Stabbings at Occupy San Francisco

Two Stabbings at Occupy San Francisco

Warmer weather has brought back the occupiers and with them fresh criminalbehavior. There have been two stabbings at the Occupy SF camp in two nights.The most recent happened Monday night:

A 27-year-old man was hospitalized after an argument led to astabbing near the Occupy SF encampment in San Francisco’s Financial Districtlate Monday night, according to San Francisco police.

This followed a more serious incident Sunday night:

The protester was stabbed in the chest about 10:40 p.m. Sundayon the 100 block of Market Street while arguing with another man about thewhereabouts of a camera, said police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza. Hewould not be more specific.

This report in the SF Examiner offers a bit more detail about the suspect inSunday night’s stabbing:

One protester told The San Francisco Examiner the dispute wasover a stolen cellphone and purse.asked not to be named…Witnesses described the suspect as a troublemaker who had been hangingaround the protest site for about a week claiming he was theleader.

Given all the mayhem, you might imagine this is a large occupation. Wrong. Huffington Post says there are just 20 people atthe camp; KGO saw only eight protesters when they did their report fromthe scene last night.
