Occupy Boston: 3 Charged with Dealing Crack Cocaine

Three people were arrested last Thursday night for dealing in crack cocaine inside the Occupy Boston camp.

According to an article by WBZ CBS Boston, there is a growing concern that prisoners who have been recently released are traveling to the Occupy protests for free food and shelter.

Has the peaceful demonstration changed? According to Mayor Menino of Boston, it has.

The mayor had this to say about the people protesting in Dewey Square.

“I just wish that the group that’s demonstrating, not just here in Boston but nationally, will look to where the problems really are,” he said. “The problems are down in Washington. And nobody’s even addressing those issues of what Washington has done to our economy, to job training, to housing, to education. They’re directing their anger at the wrong location.”
