Vancouver ‘Occupyers’ bit 2 cops, chief says
Vancouver’s police chief has issued a public warning to Occupy protesters, ordering them to disperse after an overnight scuffle that sent two officers to hospital with human bite wounds.
Chief Jim Chu says a fight broke out when firefighters moved in to the protest camp to extinguish a fire in a barrel around midnight.
He says police stepped in when people in black masks and others he says were intent on violence formed a human chain to prevent the firefighters from doing their job and began to push them around.
Officers were then punched, kicked and bitten, while one had his ammunition clip stolen.
