Occupy Denver costing tax payers big bucks

DENVER (AP) - Denver police say anti-Wall Street protests cost taxpayers more than $360,000 for the first few weeks of last month, and the costs keep rising.

City officials say they won't know the full cost until later this week.

According to KUSA-TV, the funds were needed to pay for police, sheriff's officers, public works, environmental health and Denver Health officials.

Protesters say their protests against corporate greed have been nonviolent, while police note there have been more than 80 arrests since the middle of October.
