BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Protesters in the Occupy Boulder movement danced through the night.

Boulder police officers were called out because of a noise complaint as about 50 protesters were still in the park. Police didn’t issue any tickets but warned the protesters they would start issuing tickets if they were called out again.

“It seem to be what you would call an unjust law because it’s targeting very specific groups of people,” protester Peter Yentsch said. “We’re clearing out because we’re concerned the police will come in and basically steal our things without a warrant and throw them into a trash can.”

Police Chief Mark Beckner visited the Occupy camp Friday handing out yellow fliers explaining what the new ordinance means.

“There will be no overnight camping and you can’t be in that park unless you’re moving through it as a bicyclist or pedestrian,” Kim Kobel with Boulder police said.

Violating the new ordinance will result in a trespassing citation. The punishment ranges from a fine to up to 6 months in jail.

    Wow, this story couldn’t be more wrong. Occupy Boulder didn’t “abide by” the new park hours, they flagrantly violated the new law with a big party last night:

  2. Wake Up Colorado says: sucks and it liberal slant – just like the rest of the media that lies to people on a daily basis.
