PORT ORCHARD -- For the second week in a row, Occupy Bremerton protesters have attempted to disrupt an auction of foreclosed homes.
The small Bremerton branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement against wealth inequality has gone to the Kitsap County Administrative building to shed a light on foreclosures. Armed with whistles and signs, about seven of them protested on Friday, saying that banks have gotten bail outs but people in need did not.
The Kitsap Sun reported that one man, the protesters' designated arrestee, was again taken into custody this week for disorderly conduct. Todd Penland, 48, was arrested and released within the hour.
Port Orchard police Commander Geoffrey Marti said police responded because county employees complained about the noise made by the protesters.
