Livestream of Occupy Wall Street's protestors sleeping on the sidewalks around the nearby New York Stock Exchange on Thursday night. They say they are back in full force to draw attention to income equality.

"Tonight we are engaging in the fourth night of sleep on Wall Street," a protester said Thursday. "The wording is that we are allowed to sleep on the sidewalk as long as it is a political protest and I think everyone on the planet knows Occupy Wall Street is a political protest."

Although police are able to remove protesters from public parks, lawyers say there is a legal precedent that allows Occupy Wall Street members to sleep on the sidewalk without fear of arrest.
