Good grief, the Occupy movement now has a body count

TIME has the headline "2 Dead at Vt., Oakland Occupy Protests". I guess that means the movement has officially "arrived" as a legitimate social phenomenon. It's only a matter of time before web sites start using a "stats box" to give us an updated body count, with killings, shootings, assaults, sexual assaults, arrests, etc.
Up until a week or two ago the Occupy movement had a sense of innocence and purity to it. Now, its rapidly devolving into yet another power struggle, squabble, and thuggish bullying effort that merely mocks free speech.
