No doubt, their Marxist professors told them everything should be free, so now they’re mad at the cost of going to college.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Dozens of protesters remained inside the state Capitol Monday night after California Highway Patrol officers shut down the building and were arrested after ignoring repeated orders to leave.

The CHP said 68 people were arrested Monday evening and four earlier in the day. The protesters who were arrested for refusing to leave will be charged with trespassing, CHP Capt. Andy Manard said.

The number dwindled from about 100 after California Highway Patrol officers gave the first order to leave. They gave at least four dispersal orders after the Capitol’s 6 p.m. closing time but didn’t start making arrests until after 7:30 p.m., according to CBS13′s Derek Shore.

“We gave them about seven or eight opportunities to avoid arrest,” Manard said. “We wanted to give them every opportunity to leave. Having that many arrests puts a stress on the jails too.”

Several of the protesters went limp as officers dragged them out of the building, Shore says. Each time one of them was arrested, the rest would cheer.

The number of police soon outnumbered the protesters, who chanted “No cuts, no fees, education must be free.” They were part of a daylong protest over state budget cuts to education.

According to The Sacramento Bee, 74 people in all were arrested on Monday, including 21 year old Santa Cruz student,  Anneliese Harlander, seen above.

She left this comment at The Palm Beach Post:

I was released last night along with my comrades. Before we left today, we wrote our 37 collective demands on slips of paper, gathered beautiful flower petals and marched into the capital once more. I ran up the to the second floor and flittered our dreams and the petals around the Rotunda circle. I felt the need to be creative in displaying our messages, since obviously our systems are built to suppress our dreams until they are deemed unreachable. We will be back, ready or not, here we come.

Harlander was arrested again later that day.

A 21-year-old UC Santa Cruz student who participated in Monday’s Occupy protest at the state Capitol was arrested Tuesday for the second time in two days after she returned to the rotunda and allegedly began throwing flower petalsover a second-story balcony, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

Menard said Harlander was arrested without incident on suspicion of littering and demonstrating without a permit. She was taken to county jail.
Reality can be a harsh mistress.
