Any Statistics of Number of Arrests so far ? 18.May.2008 19:05

Wondering what the toll is

Don't know the total number but I am guessing maybe close to 20 people have sustained tickets over these Draconian human rights violations that wont let people with out homes sit or sleep in their community

Anybody know the total of arrests to date from this protest?
