    from the NEW and IMPROVED corporate CNN's website:

    Protesters there tried to occupy the Colorado Capitol, which is not allowed, and officers pushed them back, police spokesman Matt Murray said.

    At that point, officers moved toward an encampment to remove tents that had been set up illegally, he said. One officer was knocked off his motorcycle and injured, while two others were kicked in the head during the ensuing melee, according to Murray. Seven people were arrested. >(WOW, only seven arrested after this "assault" on Denver's finest!!)

    Murray said police are telling protesters they can stay, but their tents have to go.

    "All we're trying to do is have a peaceful protest and they (the police) are attacking us," protester Sean Drigger told CNN affiliate KUSA......

    In Nashville, Tennessee, authorities arrested more than two dozen protesters overnight Saturday, after they again defied a curfew imposed by the state's governor.

    Twenty-six people received citations for trespassing, while two others were cited for public intoxication, according to Tennessee public safety spokeswoman Dalya Qualls.

    One other person was handed a citation for criminal impersonation of a law enforcement officer, she said.

    On Thursday, Oakland, California, Mayor Jean Quan apologized for authorities' confrontations with demonstrators, who were tear-gassed. The clashes led to the hospitalization of an Iraq war veteran.

    Marine veteran Scott Olsen suffered a skull fracture Tuesday night after allegedly being struck by a tear gas canister in Oakland, according to witnesses.
