San Diego, California - Recently, the San Diego Sheriff's Department (SDSD) launched an internal investigation to determine how some Occupy San Diego protesters that were arrested had been left on vans and buses for a long period of time resulting in self urination and defecation. About 50 protesters were taken into custody on October 26, at the downtown Civic Center Plaza and Children's Park encampments. Sheriff Deputies and San Diego police placed 36 men in buses and 14 women in vans, according to the SDSD.
Some of the men and women had to urinate and defecate on themselves before being booked because they were left on the vehicles for hours.
A SDSD statement sent to the San Diego City Beat said, “The Sheriff has directed that a Critical Incident Review be conducted internally. Also, the Sheriff’s Department and the Police Department will conduct a mutual debrief to examine in detail how the operation was handled. From those reviews we will determine how to improve our practices to assure that this does not happen again.”
In an unrelated urination and defection incident, an unidentified Occupy protester in Eureka, California publicly urinated and deposited human waste (defecation) outside the entrance of the 5th Street branch of the U.S. Bank on Nov. 4, according to a Eureka police biohazard investigation. Police reported, it was the second biohazard incident within a week.
In early October, biohazard reports surfaced that Occupy protesters had been urinating and defecating along the Wall Street financial district near encampments in New York. An unidentified man was caught by photographer Stefan Jeremiah and photo posted in the Daily Mail dot co dot uk showing the man defecating on a New York Police Department squad car in Manhattan.
This weekend, police in Portland, Oregon; Salt Lake City, Utah; Denver, Colorado; Oakland, California and in St. Louis, Missouri began clearing Occupy encampments and arresting protesters resisting to leave. Occupy protesters claimed, police are violating their rights to assembly under the First Amendment and in California, protest organizers are seeking an injunction to keep police from removing them from encampments.
In some Occupy encampments around the U.S., sexual assaults have been reported, trash and unsanitary conditions had risen and one person managed to commit suicide.
