David Burgess and Justin James Bridges.

Justin James Bridges is a local musician who participated in the
Occupy Portland encampment. On the last Saturday night at the
encampment he performed at Terry Shrunk Plaza, but by the next night

has accumulated thousands of dollars in medical bills and legal
