Occupy Sniagrab: Protesters use annual sale to defy urban camping ban

After months without a place to legally camp outside following passage of the city's controversial urban camping ban, Occupy Denver members have finally found a place to bed down where the police can't really bother them: outside Sports Authority.

With the company snagging a special permit for its big Sniagrab Labor Day sale, the city has allowed tents again for the annual shopping tradition -- and Occupy Denver is taking advantage.
