PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police are investigating the discovery of at least six acts of vandalism, including graffiti and human feces, that was found near the “Occupy Philadelphia” protests.
According to investigators, the human excrement was found smeared on the concourse under Dilworth Plaza.
The graffiti was found on the walls of the concourse. Police say the graffiti contained a slogan that has been connected to the Occupy Philly movement. On a pillar someone wrote, “I don’t want to change the world, I just want to destroy it.”
So far, no arrests have been made. The protestors have been living in tents around City Hall for the past 41 days.
The relationship between city leaders and the Occupy protestors have grown more contentious in the past few days.
Mayor Michael Nutter ordered an increased police presence at the location because of what he said were growing safety and health concerns at the tent city.
Leaders of the “Occupy Philadelphia” protest have accused Nutter of trying to discredit and divide the group.
A potential showdown looms between city officials and protestors as a scheduled construction project on Dilworth Plaza remains on the horizon.
