You can find pot, condoms, and topless women at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York's Zuccotti Park. In an article yesterday, the New York Post painted a picture of debauchery among the protests, filled with homeless looking for free food and young people getting down in sleeping bags.
The paper interviewed a 24-year-old named Dave, "a scrawny, unshaven miscreant in filthy clothes," who claimed he was running from the law and hiding from warrants among the protestors. The reporter was also offered pot for $15 and heroin for $10. And a woman who said "I haven't hooked up with any guys ... but one of my friends did have sex in a tarp with a guy last night" was also quoted. They might not have bathing options, but luckily there are free condoms on hand.
Organizers have reportedly set up an internal police group to cut down on the drinking, drugs, and sex that could distract from the message. Depending on your point of view, this probably sounds like a 1960s-style free love adventure, or your version of a shower-less nightmare.
