"Dozens Of Occupy Albany Protesters Arrested"

Police arrested 48 Occupy Albany protesters “late Saturday night after they refused to leave Lafayette Park.” Yesterday, 11 additional protesters were arrested when they refused to leave Lafayette Park and East Capitol Park after the closing times of both parks. The arrests come nearly a month after police earlier refused to crack down on protesters, to the chagrin of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY).

Update

A reader writes in to note that the bulk of Occupy Albany is in a park where their rights to camp out for 24 hours a day have not been infringed upon.
