    Update: 'Occupy' crackdowns coordinated with federal law enforcement officials C

    Over the past ten days, more than a dozen cities have moved to evict "Occupy" protesters from city parks and other public spaces. As was the case in last night's move in New York City, each of the police actions shares a number of characteristics. And according to one Justice official, each of those actions was coordinated with help from Homeland Security, the FBI and other federal police agencies.The official, who spoke on background to me late Monday evening, said that while local police agencies had received tactical and planning advice from national agencies, the ultimate decision on how each jurisdiction handles the Occupy protests ultimately rests with local law enforcement.According to this official, in several recent conference calls and briefings, local police agencies were advised to seek a legal reason to evict residents of tent cities, focusing on zoning laws and existing curfew rules. Agencies were also advised to demonstrate a massive show of police force, including large numbers in riot gear. In particular, the FBI reportedly advised on press relations, with one presentation suggesting that any moves to evict protesters be coordinated for a time when the press was the least likely to be present
    The FBI has so far failed to respond to requests for an official response, and of the 14 local police agencies contacted in the past 24 hours, all have declined to respond to questions on this issue.

Advising them to find some legal reason to kick out the protesters... Good ol democracy... Great job feds!! Cities were advised by Department Of Homeland Security and FBI to look for reasons to evict OWS- such as zoning and curfew laws. They were also advised to show massive force and to evict at times when the press was least likely to be present.

    The government is scared of the Occupy Wall Street movement because we can actually change the way the world works. We have enough people, the analysis and the will, to cripple industry until corporations meet our demands. This frightens them into a frenzy.

    So Obama was behind it. Go figure. He saw no way to explaoit it for political gains so he decided to take actions before things get even uglier.

    It will be interesting to see how this works for him.

    How is Obama behind this? Do you have any evidence of that?

    Nobody likes lawless frenzies. That's what most of these Occupy movements have become. They need to organize -- not camp out. If the only support they have for their convictions is pitching a tent and having a slumber party, they're doomed.

    How is camping in an area, and then getting up to march in a unifying force not "organized"?

    They need one single voice. Media people who hammer home their cogent points. Let's look at the latest media communiques from Occupy Oakland:

    As for the plaza, there are about a dozen police in the area making sure no one pitches a tent. There is also a lone demonstrator up in a tree.
    What???

    Zachary Running Wolf is sitting atop a small wooden platform, tied to the tree, and is being largely ignored by police for the time being. Police Chief Howard Jordan said at a morning news conference that police are leaving him be as they look into what his legal rights are to be there. Monday morning, he could be heard shouting from the tree, "This is native land. I'm not coming down."

    Running Wolf is a familiar name in the East Bay, where he has run for City Council in Berkeley and was involved in the lengthy tree-sit at the University of California at Berkeley several years ago to protest the removal of a grove of trees to make way for a new sports training center.
    A protester on the ground nearby who identified himself as "Fireball" said Running Wolf represents the encampment's "best defense" right now

    "The cops can't get into the trees," he said. Fireball said Running Wolf has enough food and water to last several days.
    Me thinks they just jumped the shark.
