I am not aware of the source data for the original article but here we have courtesy of the NYPD the crime stats for their first precinct which includes Zuccotti park where the OWS people are camping.
While some felony categories are down, there is a major increase in some categories. Compared to the same time last year:
Felony Assault is up
Burglary is up.
Grand Larceny from Auto is up.
Petit larceny is up
Misdemeanor assault is up
Misdemeanor sex crimes are up.

What I do have to support the claim by the Christian Science Monitor article quoted, is that on CNN when the Tea Party had their big rally on the mall in DC, an interview with the U.S. Capitol Police said there was no mess to clean up, the protesters policed up their own trash and they had no incidents with the crowd. They said it was very rare for a protest by any group who uses the mall to leave no mess behind like the Tea Party group.
You'll have to check the CNN archives for the coverage of the event last year if you want verification. I saw it once which was good enough for me.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
one reason for the increase in crime in NY is that a few thousand cops are being diverted from patrol to watch over the flea baggers
WOW! This is such a great, worthwhile, and totally priceless thread that it deserves to be permanently sealed for all of eternity so that nobody can ever pervert it by posting anything off topic into it.
