Activist and professor Cornel West was arrested on the steps of the Supreme Court building Sunday afternoon while taking part in Occupy DC protests.

 

West was holding up a sign that ready "Poverty is the Greatest Violence of All." While the Supreme Court supports free speech, holding political signs on the court steps is illegal, and therefore West was arrested.
