Patrick Meighan, writer for Family Guy, was a protestor for Occupy LA.
He was one of the 292 protestors that were arrested by LAPD during a raid at City Hall.

Comedian Jeffrey Ross took some time out of his day to support the Occupy L.A. protestors by roasting Wall Street on the steps of the Los Angeles City Hall building.
Everyone needs a little humor in this whole thing, right? That's really awesome of you, Jeff!
Check out his roast above!
