The Washington Post reports that the US Park Police have surrounded McPherson Square this morning and they’re checking the tents for sleeping gear;
Police in riot gear and on horseback entered the McPherson Square encampment in Northwest D.C. this morning around 5:30 a.m. and began collecting pallets and other items from the campers.
Helicopters hovered overhead and a firehose was rolled out by police as the protesters watched. Police have told the Occupiers that they they want them to clear area around the camp’s tarp-covered “Tent of Dreams.”
You can watch it live at the Washington Post and wait for the taserings to begin, cuz, you know nothing good comes from waking up hippies at zero-dark-thirty.
