We're told that Occupy Wall Street has had thousands of arrests, hundreds of thefts, even a few murders. Extensive "rap sheets" have been compiled purporting to demonstrate this, and claiming to compare Occupy Wall Street to the Tea Party movement which had, it is claimed, zero such incidents. This was actually claimed even before Occupy Wall Street came into existence.
Zero, huh? Funny, I found a lot more than zero when I actually looked. In no particular order:
5. Police say arrest wasn't tea party related (I'm including this one because the altercation that led to the arrest occurred at the tea party event, despite stemming from prior personal history)
8. John Bush Gets Arrested For Protesting Obama on UT Campus (For confirmation that John Bush is a Tea Party member, see this video as well.)
Just a sampling, not an exhaustive list. Feel free to share others that I've missed in the comments.

Funny, so far at least the OWS "rap sheet" doesn't include any arrests by the FBI...

Was trying to get to this one last night, but archive.org was down and I couldn't find another copy anywhere.
