It's earnings season – that time of year when big companies tell the public how much money they've made. Yesterday, J.P. Morgan Chase announced their income had dropped 4 percent in the third quarter.

That made a lot of people nervous because J.P. Morgan is considered to be one of the country's strongest banks. Meanwhile, the "Occupy Wall Street" protests continue just down the street. One member of the crowd turning heads is the so-called "hipster" cop – a police officer who has been known to sport horn-rimmed glasses and a jean jacket.
