Denver (AP) -- Gov. John Hickenlooper says he isn't sure what
legal options the state has to deal with protesters who have camped
out at the state capitol protesting corporate greed. Hickenlooper told KOA-AM radio on Tuesday that he is concerned about the illegal encampment on state property but didn't indicate that he was prepared to order the state patrol to clear out the park. Patrol officials said Sunday that they had no plans to remove the campers and tents. Hickenlooper says he supports rights to free speech but he has concerns about the camp. He says he is worried it will set a precedent for future protests.
