**Arts Express: Arrested Developments. A Bishop 'Converts' To Occupy Wall Street. At the turbulent juncture of religion, politics and culture, Bishop George Packard was famously seen going viral across cyberspace, as he led the way in scaling a Trinity Church NYC fence in full ceremonial robes, to liberate the vacant lot for a new OWS encampment. Bishop George discusses with Arts Express his subsequent arrest as political prisoner of the NYPD, along with scores of others that day. And what also went down with the police assault on New Year's Eve.

Plus, the retired Bishop's frustrating attempts to negotiate with his Trinity Church, to donate the space in question and concede to OWS demands; police brutality witnessed against his wife that day, her breasts kicked repeatedly and then thrown bodily like a weapon on top of protesters; Bishop George's difficult and troubled journey from Vietnam combat soldier to post traumatic stress and the priesthood, and from killer to healer; taking an Occupy hunger striker home for some dinner; and the real truth about the false police scissor assault arrest on New Year's Eve.
