DENVER- Hundreds of police in riot gear were deployed against the Occupy campers today. Not for the peaceful march, nor the slogans they voiced, nor even activist demands to climb the capitol steps.

To the peaceful assembly, the sudden arms buildup could have been none other than a show of force. 28921
