"Occupy Nashville protesters are tempting police to arrest them as they challenge a new law meant to evict them from their camp near the state Capitol, said the House sponsor of the legislation signed by the governor. The law prohibits camping on state property that is not specifically designated for it. On Wednesday, two protesters wore camping tents as costumes and walked around the War Memorial Plaza, saying the law criminalizes homelessness and its penalties are excessive." (03/15/12)
