Occupy Oakland night raid: Police dismantle the camp, 1st amendment ignored

Standard

Police in Oakland, California have cleared out a weeks-old encampment after issuing several warnings to Occupy demonstrators. Oakland police and officers from several other San Francisco Bay area cities encircled the downtown encampment before dawn and moved in at about 6 a.m. Officers were seen escorting handcuffed protesters away from the camp soon afterward. The action comes a day after police drove hundreds of anti-Wall Street demonstrators from encampments in Portland, Oregon, arresting more than 50 people. Oakland officials insisted on an end to their city’s encampment after a man was shot and killed Thursday near the camp.
