The link to an AP story below traces the evolution of the left-leaning LA City Council's stand on the Occupy LA encampment, moving from open support to tolerance and finally to opposition and the inevitable command to shut it down. It reflects the stupidity of the movement's attachment to a tactic that was unsustainable from the start, and that became the issue above all issues in the public's eye.
The city will now face law suits in the future if it doesn't grant other protests the same benefits it did for over 2 months to OWS. "Equal protection under the law," remember? Why did none of the constitutional experts in OWS see that one coming?
A fitting epitaph of the movement: "They should have listened to their friends."
