Occupy LA. According NBC Los Angeles, about 1700 LAPD officers were present on the scene to remove protesters from City Hall park. They came prepared - apparently some wore biohazard suits. The protesters were reported as being “boisterous but peaceful,” and were declared an “unlawful assembly” at 12:30 AM. There have been a number of arrests and a few injuries, but KNBC reports that the process has been very “un-Oakland-like.” A local church has even opened up its doors to “give sanctuary to the 99 percent.”
