Chief Monroe and Deputy Chief Medlock vs Occupy Charlotte
Chief Monroe looks on as CMPD Officer move in on Occupy Charlotte.
In the end Occupy Charlotte closes not with the chaos of Oakland or NYC, rather more like a high school house party when the parents come home early.
While the "we are the 99%" crowd have lost their camp site at least they have shown Charlotte is not immune to the influence of the rest of the nation.
The question is why did Charlotte's Occupy crowd never get the traction, local support or even a solid confrontation with police?
Could it be that Charlotte's working class is just too busy working, paying taxes and just trying to make ends meet?
