NYPD Evicts Occupy Wall Street Protesters, Judge Concurs
November 15, 2011
Hours after New York Police officers cleared Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park in an early Tuesday morning raid that netted 200 arrests, protesters returned to the park again.
NYPD officers cleared out the kitchen area of the park at about 3:30 a.m., arresting protesters who had formed a human chain. By 6:30 a.m., protesters obtained a judge's order allowing them to return with "tents and other property."
About 50 people had been allowed back into the park, before the NYPD closed it at 8:10 a.m. to sort out legal issues, reports the New York Daily News.
Later in the day, State Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman upheld the city's eviction of the protesters after an emergency appeal by the National Lawyers Guild, reports CBS News.

Bout time, I remember dealing with the same type of people during the RNC and that only went on for a few days. I'm glad I retired and didn't have to spend a couple of months dealing with them.

Bout time? Bill, who are the voices that protect your pension, your union? Who spoke up for the James Zadroga Bill? Your union? Who wants to take your pension out of Wall Street and invest it into the City? Your union? Lets see:
You expect them to protect your well-being for the rest of your life? Where were they when John Feal was vying for your benefits? Doing their job, right? But then, Congress stepped in and blocked the 9/11 survivors' benefits. Who stepped in and helped? The same people you're criticizing. That gift horse is the 99%. Your union alone cannot do the work, so it took groups like WeAreChange Nation and worldwide to get the Zadroga bill passed.
These same people were in Zucotti Park and you thank them by saying bout time? If that's the case, thank Wall Street for stealing your pension and the Republicans who hate the Occupiers who allowed this to happen.
