Occupy Denver clashes with police (again) over tents raised for cold weather (PHOTOS)

As the weather hit thirty degrees and the season's first snow closed in on Occupy Denver last night, members turned once more to tents as a refuge from the elements. Because this was the reason the state patrol raided the camp two weeks ago, the four new tents lasted only an hour. Nights like the last one prefigure a more difficult protest season and slimmer numbers for the group.
