One example is Tim Franzen, the leader of Occupy Atlanta. He is followed around the park he is "occupying," Woodriff Park, by random people. While conducting an interview with him, a reporter was warned that a man named "Porch" was right next to Franzen, carrying an AK-47.
Franzen wears a jacket, button-down shirt, and his "trademark red knit cap" as he wanders around looking at people. Once again, this man is considered the leader of Occupy Atlanta.
"We've been having a team of alchemists and faith healers and doctors of physics working together to develop a mathematical formula to levitate the building," he stated.

Instead, this OWS leader goes to his day job and then spends his evenings talking with alchemists. Franzen describes his feelings towards the protests: "This opportunity is so important that I'm willing to do my day job, then pour every hour into this, that's what everyone in the park is doing."
And the people at Occupy Atlanta are following him.
