The Middle Class in Charlotte survived two hours longer than the Middle Class in Tampa – through heat and downpours. But still disappeared.
Here are some comments from bystanders who passed by Marshall Park.
Sometimes, a journalist is just a journalist, even at FOX…
Charlotte is so much more open than Tampa. There is no permitting, anyone can express themselves as long as they don’t impede others.
Park Superintendent Peter Cook asssured us that there would be no problems with us setting up our sculpture, but when we arrived the Police quickly intervened.
It was a matter of the safety of the Occupy Charlotte people, our vehicles could hit them if they woke up and left their tents.
In the any event, we were able to set up the sculptures with no problems.
Here are a few of the images we captured while the Middle Class melted down at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on August 26th. For a full set of images, visit our Flickr page.
