It's gotten so bad in Baltimore that organizers are discouraging alleged victims from going to the police (maybe they should go to Sheriff Biden).
Meanwhile, out in Oakland "occupiers" have taken to threatening reporters who dare enter their space. Ironically, it's public space, but I guess they've claimed it as their own. Also in Oakland they've been overrun by the dregs of society, resulting on what one police office says it a scene akin to the Lord of the Flies.
One of the problems they have down on the Greenway is that there aren’t any locks or fences or gates. You might say they have ... open borders. But of course one of Occupy Wall Street’s nonnegotiable demands is for the United States to ... open the borders.
Down in New York, there was a scuffle the other day between the demonstrators and a hustler who’d shown up on the edge of the encampment with a bucket. He was soliciting “donations” from passers-by. Only he was putting the spare change in his own pocket. In other words, he was pretending to be somebody he wasn’t, for financial gain. You might say he was engaged in ... identity theft.
Somehow, when it happens to them, identity theft is a lot bigger deal than when some illegal alien steals a taxpayer’s Social Security number. When any American complains about such crimes, he’s denounced as a nativist, a xenophobe, a racist.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

It's terrible there was one rape at the Cleveland OWS tent city, and it's true that these protests are having difficulty dealing with the mentally ill and homeless who show up. But, the article offers absolutely no evidence that crime is surging, except for perhaps for littering.
It's false that crime is so bad that they're trying to discourage people from going to the police. In fact the right wing rag you linked to provides a link to its source that explains what's going on:
The hodgepodge of anti-establishment activists who have erected a tent city at the Inner Harbor as part of the broader Occupy Wall Street movement are trying to develop their own rules of conduct, developed through committees and approved by a general assembly.
Lewis said there have been no reports of sexual assaults or rapes at the Baltimore protest site. But she said that members of the "security committee" have mediated several disputes involving allegations of sexual harassment.
City police have reported no arrests of protesters, or any crime involving members of the group. A spokesman declined to criticize the group's pamphlet. "The Baltimore Police Department is committed to the utmost level of service and encourages all victims of all crimes to report them," said Det.Kevin Brown.
It's hilarious. The fleabaggers are clamoring for open borders and now get to experience a microcosm of what open borders really means -- you get the worst preying off the defenseless. Maybe some of them will have the real life experience now that their sheltered lives had not yet given them. Might breed a new generation of right wing activists!
even if this were true, there's obviously going to be the 1% who don't want the 99% organizing into anything that threatens them, and they'll be sure more stories like this get out, than actual stories about what can be done to avert armageddon
