UPDATE: DPD Raids Squat, Support Needed

Please Post and Forward Widely
Background
Sunday afternoon a squat in the Jefferson Park Neighborhood of Northwest Denver was raided by over a dozen officers from District 1 of the Denver Police Department.
Witnesses report that the raid was very violent, with at least 8 officers repeatedly beating one of the arrestees, and eventually using paramedics to sedate them while they laid face down, bleeding, in the street.
Four people were arrested, one being sent to a hospital in an ambulance to receive medical care.  As of Sunday night, three of the arrestees are facing 2nd degree Burglary (a class 3 felony) and $10,000 bonds.  The fourth arrestee’s charges remain unknown because she is still hospitalized.  All four have been active participants of Occupy Denver.
