UPDATE #1: The guy you see being taken across the street with the green face paint has, and this is CONFIRMED, been Released. (a few hours ago actually.) Friends of his bailed him out. Bail was set at $763.00. He has two charges against him, but it's expected that they'll be dropped the second he enters the courtroom.
UPDATE #3: Both are out on bail! CONFIRMED!

Dekalb police step up the repressive factor -- Suddenly! Arrests out of the blue.

They were arrested for:
1)Sec. 15-241. Permit required for solicitors
Sec. 15-241. Required.
Any person engaged in or desiring to engage in any type of selling, soliciting, canvassing, survey-making or any other business, occupation or vocation, which by its nature requires going from door to door or house to house in the residential areas of the unincorporated areas of the county, whether on a temporary or a permanent basis and whether or not it is for any religious, charitable, nonprofit or profit-making organization, shall obtain a solicitor's permit from the police department.
2)Sec. 16-68. Creating hazardous or offensive condition.
No person shall create a hazardous or physically offensive condition by an act which serves no legitimate purpose.

Will upload what the police said to us MUCH later in the protest.

Update: Digg it! http://digg.com/odd_stuff/Video_of_Ri...

Contrast this to how LA Police treated Anonymous:

Released to public domain.
