***

Arrested in 2013 after flipping off two New York City police officers on a Queens subway train, two Occupy Wall Street protesters are $52,000 closer to becoming one percenters.

That is the amount the city agreed to pay Nicholas Thommen, 21, and Channing Creage, 26, for violating their free-speech rights, according to the New York Daily News and the New York Post. The pair will split the settlement in the Brooklyn federal court civil rights case.
