OWS Protesters Defy LA Eviction Order (Vermin don't want to leave)
Slate ^ | 11/28/2011 | S. Fred Singer

UPDATE Monday at 9:35 a.m.: Los Angeles police are holding off on a plan to forcibly evict Occupy LA protesters from their encampment near city hall for now, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Still, the paper reports that a few refused to leave the street and that four people were arrested after several protesters began throwing things at police.

Hundreds of police wearing riot gear have lined the streets but currently continue to show restraint. The LAT: "Police said that there are still no plans to begin evicting people from the City Hall park, which was officially closed at midnight Sunday. They said their main intention was to clear the streets for morning commuters."

Sunday, Nov. 27: As many get ready to head back to work after a holiday weekend, Occupy protesters in Los Angeles are preparing to defy LAPD’s assertion that their fun is over, too.

The Associated Press reports that an encampment at Los Angeles City Hall is scheduled for evacuation starting just after midnight Monday morning, but protesters weren’t packing up. Instead, they were learning resistance tactics, and learning how to deal with the possibility of rubber bullets, tear gas, and other police crowd control weapons.

“Their plan is to resist the closure of this encampment and if that means getting arrested so be it,” occupier Will Picard told AP, speaking of protest organizers. “I think they just want to make the police tear it down rather than tear it down themselves.”

The Los Angeles Times reports Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief Charlie Beck set the midnight deadline for Occupy protesters, and admitted that arrests were likely but would not divulge plans about how protesters might be moved.

If the OWS protestors wave the Mexican flag the LAPD will not lay a finger on them.

Wonder if Alabama’s late Bull Conner left some sons or grandsons who would like to do a little moonlighting in L.A.?

Raid® Brand Insecticides are excellent products for dealing with vermin. I'd go with the wide area Fogger or Fumigator options.

Maybe they’ll use something stronger than whatever it was they sprayed those UC Davis students with. That stuff was some kind of watered down formula designed specifically for use against delicate upper middle class university students. It allows them to write home to their delighted hippy relic parents that they’ve been peppered sprayed (”Look Dad, I’m down for the struggle just like you were!”), but without having to endure anything beyond the most superficial discomfort.

People who have been there at night say it is almost 100% homeless. Or maybe I should say 99%

Tell tale sentence:

Sunday, Nov. 27: As many get ready to head back to work after a holiday weekend, Occupy protesters in Los Angeles are preparing to defy LAPD’s assertion that their fun is over, too.

As the rest of the "99%" were wrapping things up from the Thanksgiving weekend and preparing to head back into work on Monday, OWSers continue to be malingerers.

Abraham Lincoln knew how to deal with the draft rioters of 1863. How would the Messiah, who claims to emulate Lincoln, feel if someone in Ca. had the cojones to do something so lincolnesque with these vermin?
