Occupy Tampa Protests JPMorgan Chase $2 Billion Mistake

Protestors lined up Tuesday morning outside the JPMorgan Chase building in Tampa. This is after CEO Jamie Dimon admitted he made a trading mistake which cost shareholders $2 billion. 

Coming from Tampa, Orlando and Miami, the protestors shouted slogans such as "Banks got bailed out! We got sold out!"


One Orlando man even wrote a song which he performed for the crowd. One line reads, "Cuz I always thought that corporate greed was pretty neat. Now I'm screwed and I can't find food..."

Protestors rolled the dice and threw eggs at a picture of Dimon critizing what they called "casino style banking."
