NEW YORK — The arrests of 700 people on New York's Brooklyn Bridge over the weekend have fueled the anger of anti-Wall Street protesters and sparked support elsewhere in the country as the campaign enters its third week.
Occupy Wall Street started with fewer than a dozen college students spending days and nights in a park near the city's financial center. But after Saturday's mass arrests, hundreds remain resolute and like-minded groups in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio, are showing support. In Toronto, a Wall Street rally is planned for later this month.
New York City police say the department will continue its regular patrols of the area and make arrests only when someone breaks the law.
