Dozens arrested after foreclosure protesters target Bank of America 01 Oct 2011 Police have arrested two dozen protesters for trespassing during a demonstration against Bank of America’s foreclosure practices at the banking giant’s offices in downtown Boston. The Boston Herald reports that the event was an act of civil disobedience that the organizers intended to send the message that the lender’s practices were unfair. ‘They wanted to be arrested, and we obliged,’ Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis told the newspaper.
