Tonight in New York City they cleared out Occupy Wall Street. After midnight, cops raided the protest and forced everyone to leave. Some resisted and were arrested. This was done, according to officials, for “health” reasons. Apparently, they’re going to give Liberty Square a good scrubbing. Protestors will be allowed to return, but without sleeping bags, tarps or tents.
“Since it’s getting cold out, not allowing them to have shelter will hopefully make them go away,” said an unnamed New York City official. “It’s looking like the protests are resonating more and more with people, and this has to be stopped before the ruling elite are forced to take them seriously.”
