Arrests as Occupy the Koch brothers protest in DC escalates

On Friday, I was in D.C. covering a Republican summit backed by billionaire industrialist David Koch for Forbes, where I'm a staff writer based in NY. As a Tribute to Reagan dinner capped off the first day of the summit inside the convention center, hundreds if not thousands of protesters gathered outside to protest the increasing involvement of the Kochs -- America's richest brothers -- in politics. That afternoon, Herman Cain had announced he considers himself "the Koch brothers' brother from another mother." In this photo, a young man is being arrested for pouncing on top of a car. The car in question had just mowed down three protesters who'd been 'occupying' an intersection. For the whole story, see my Forbes.com post.
