Occupy Protesters Interrupt Governor At The Garden Of The Gods

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Occupy protestors interrupted Gov. John Hickenlooper at the Garden of the Gods Tuesday afternoon.

Hickenlooper was in Colorado Springs to talk about a new solar garden. He tried to continue his speech but the protesters kept shouting. Finally he told them he respects their right to freedom of speech, so to please respect his.

“Wall Street got out with a slap on the wrist and they caused this recession that we are all dealing with, we don’t disagree with that. But I think, let’s get more constructive,” Hickenlooper said.

Other audience members took it upon themselves to ask the protestors to sit down and be quiet.
