Occupy Oakland protesters prepare for possible eviction

Police in riot gear assembled in Oakland, California on Monday in an apparent preparation to clear a downtown encampment of Occupy Oakland protesters.

City officials in Oakland have issued an eviction notice ordering protesters to leave the Frank Ogawa Plaza. The order came a day after a "frequent resident" of the camp allegedly shot and killed another man.

Protester Tania Kappner told CNN affiliate KTVU that protesters had no intention of leaving.

"The camp is prepared to defend itself and, I mean, obviously the police have been very brutal in the past and that is a concern," she said Sunday night. "But people are still here, people are saying, you know, 'We are not going anywhere.'"

    So they "take over" land, put up their tents, create a mess, cause cities to spend money to protect them, clean up thier messes, and then have to use force when they refuse to leave! YEP, a real bunch of people that are concerned about THEIR problems and the heck with everyone else!

    @Jj, I heard just a short time ago, about a week, that this administration has spent more money than all the previous administrations combined, beging with President Washinton. That boggles my mind.

    The expenditures are just fine: it's tax money that comes from the rich and corporations.
    We'll teach people that it doesn't pay to go to work!
