On Wednesday as the Las Vegas desert sun rose, shocked commuters witnessed the full effect of the Occupy movement with the aid of a mystery street artist, a pair of mannequins, some rope, and a death defying climb up two overhead billboards on the freeway in Clark County. Here’s a perturbing take on the situation via Occupy Las Vegas who first reported the story.

Clark County has the second highest rate of adult suicide in the country right now. It has the fifth highest rate of child suicide. And, thanks to the governor’s draconian education budget, the Social Work programs that used to supply volunteers and interns to help such people have been de-funded. The Clark County suicide hotline number is “not in service at this time.” Nevada has the highest sustained unemployment of any state in the U.S. with almost no real hope in sight and politicians more concerned with corporate campaign donations than they are helping the middle class & poor.
