TheDailyBeast: America’s 10 Angriest Cities

3 of 12

9. Chicago, Illinois

Population: 2,824,064
Tea Party protesters, April 15, 2009: 2,000
Occupy Wall Street protesters, October 15, 2011: 2,000
Total protesters per million: 1,416

The thousands who have showed up to Occupy Chicago have centered in and around Grant Park, but unlike in New York City, where plans to empty and clean Zuccotti Park were scrapped in favor of the protesters cleaning up after themselves, Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel has taken a more hands-on approach. Namely, Chicago police ordered protesters out of Grant Park, and Emanuel consulted with police superintendent Garry McCarthy before 175 people who would not leave the park on Oct. 15 were arrested.
