Occupy L.A. Protesters Arrested

Following the dispersed Occupy L.A. protest this month at the La Cañada Flintridge home of Deutsche Bank Executive Brian Mulligan, six protesters were arrested in Century City Tuesday.

Six Occupy demonstrators were arrested in Century City on Tuesday for failing to disperse and trying to block traffic in front of Deutsche Bank offices on the Avenue of the Stars.

The demonstrators targeted Deutsche Bank offices because they said the global institution was illegally foreclosing on U.S. homes. 

Los Angeles police declared an illegal assembly Tuesday after some activists put up yellow tape across the Avenue of the Stars at Constellation Boulevard, stopping traffic, and several people started "chalking" messages on the pavement. The arrests were made about 3:20 p.m., Los Angeles police Officer Sara Faden said.

About 30 people were involved in the demonstration, and most left when ordered to, she said. The names of those arrested and their booking charges were not immediately available.

Video of the demonstration showed some activists sitting on the street, while others chanted, "Hey-hey, ho-ho, Deutsche Bank has got to go."

Earlier, local activists with the Occupy movement demonstrated against Deutsche Bank practices in front of the German consulate and on Nov. 3 in front of Deutsche Bank Executive Brian Mulligan's home on Commonwealth Avenue in La Cañada Flintridge.

Patch confirmed the home is owned by Mulligan via Blockshopper and Crescenta Valley phone directory. Mulligan alleges LAPD battered and bruised him without cause last spring. 

An audio recording of a conversation between a Glendale police officer and Mulligan reportedly captures the La Cañada Flintridge bank executive admitting that he had ingested a hallucinogenic drug two days before the beating.

Patch left a voice message for Mulligan, but it was not returned at the time of publication. 

A resident, who asked not to be identified, said the 3 p.m. protest, just south of Berkshire Avenue, lasted roughly 20 minutes before deputies from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station broke it up.

I think it is preposterous that a man who has admitted to the regular misuse of bath salts, pot and ambien holds a senior position with a major bank. It is also preposterous that this junkie should be allowed to tie up our legal system and waste taxpayer dollars filing frivolous lawsuits.
