NYPD Arrests 28 Protesters

    NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 05:  Thousands of Wall Street protesters are joined by union members during an afternoon protest on October 5, 2011 in New York City. Hundreds of activists affiliated with the 'Occupy Wall Street' demonstrations have been living in a park in the Financial District near Wall Street. The activists have been gradually converging on the financial district over the past two weeks to rally against the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues. Over 700 people were arrested last weekend on the Brooklyn Bridge after temporarily blocking traffic.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

    Occupy Wall St. continues to pick up steam. Thursday marks the 20th day of protests, while Wednesday appeared to draw the largest crowd yet.
