Police clear Occupy camps in Los Angeles, Philly

Police in Los Angeles and Philadelphia dismantled tents and arrested Occupy protesters who refused to leave city areas early Wednesday.

Los Angeles police moved in at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday (3:30 a.m. ET). About an hour later, the City Hall lawn was cleared and closed for cleanup. About 200 people were arrested in the operation, utilizing some 1,400 officers, said Police Chief Charlie Beck. The Los Angeles encampment, which has been in place for some 60 days, had become the largest remaining one after police raided New York's Zuccotti Park on November 15 and dismantled the nearly two-month-old camp.

In Philadelphia, CNN affiliate WPVI reported about 40 protesters were arrested following a clash with police.

      Sorry George, I see that these ignorant Tea Partiers will not leave you alone no matter how right you are about things. It goes to show just how much some people can be motivated by envy! Then again, I get trolled too.

      I think the money that OWS collects is taxable as income. Have these bank accounts been audited by the IRS? These people must pay their fair share. The clothing, food, and other donations should also be taxed. This is not a charity. If there is no one that is responsible for these taxes then the money and goods should be confiscated.

    Someone please tell O'reilly that the Occupied movement is far from dead. His "show" is dead, dead wrong.

    And those who believe that the Occupied Movement is old news, please pay attention. The only old news is Old Gigt.
