Occupy Denver's all-day concert closes out a week of peace

Update, 11:20 p.m. October 22: The close of tonight's Occupy Denver concert was a completely different scene from only one week ago. Although it ended with police presence, the number of cops left is the same 10 to 15 who stayed from last night until about 5 a.m. to monitor those who have grown used to falling asleep to the sound of honking. The most important difference, however, is that the night ended without altercation.
