Occupy Los Angeles scum were told in no uncertain terms to vacate their ObamaVille commune, and true to Occupier provocative form they have refused.

(Los Angeles Times – Framework) –On Sunday, Los Angeles city officials encouraged Occupy L.A. protesters to leave the lawn outside City Hall. Protesters rejected the proposal, setting up a possible confrontation with police early Monday morning.

After the deadline passed, police with helmets, face masks, and batons confronted the protesters and moved them back off the streets to the City Hall sidewalk and lawn.[...]
What do they want? A taxpayer funded (public) space so revolting communist/socialist/marxist/anarchist occupiers can bitch and moan 24/7. That America, is a prime example of a brain pickled in extreme leftisim. Void of all logic and reason.
Occupy L.A. participants on Sunday rejected a city official’s midday plea to move their political activism indoors and depart the park space that encircles Los Angeles City Hall.
The standoff sets the stage for a possible confrontation just after midnight — the deadline authorities set for clearing the park.
“Until the grievances of the 99% are addressed to end corporate control of the system, the government and the media, Occupy L.A. will be here exercising our 1st Amendment rights and petition for our grievances,” said Julie Levine, acting as one of several spokespeople for Occupy L.A., which is loosely organized.
Levine and others addressed the media and onlookers shortly after Councilman Bill Rosendahl urged them to make “a peaceful transition from this land to action.” Rosendahl pledged that city officials would try to address their demands and also would provide space outside City Hall for gatherings that would have to end each night by 10:30 p.m.
“It’s important to truly exercise one’s constitutional rights,” said Reese, who was not speaking on behalf of Pacifica. “We need a public space where we can do this 24/7, not on a permitted basis a few hours of the day.”[...]
And about Occupy Wall Street’s (and all offshoots) claim that their (at times violent and always illegal) occupations are protected under the first amendment:
Throughout this filthy, lice-ridden parade of human waste known as #OccupyWallStreet, the protesters have taken for granted First Amendment protections to act the fool and get away with it. However, the First Amendment in no way protects the kinds of things the occupiers are doing.
Just consider the text of the amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
When an occupier, whose mind is warped by Marxist texts and Obama’s speeches, reads that amendment he simply thinks he has the right to assemble and petition the government—period. What he doesn’t see is that he only has the right to do so “peaceably.” (Defecating on police cars, exposing one’s self to young children, raping and kidnapping, and occupying property that is owned by someone else does not fall under the heading “peaceably.”)
Moreover, what the occupier fails to understand because of his non-stop drug use and university indoctrination, is that occupying Wal-Mart or The Home Depot is not the same thing as “[petitioning] the Government for a redress of grievances.” In fact, it’s just the opposite—it’s shutting down commerce and crippling the economy because you want more free stuff.
….the First Amendment [doesn't] protect lawlessness. [...]
Not to mention that the political ideologies of the occupants have no use what…so…ever, for –freedom of speech or any other freedoms granted under the US Constitution for that matter. I R O N Y.
Is the LAPD lulling Occupy Los Angeles into a false sense of security?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police reopened a downtown street Monday where hundreds of Wall Street protesters held an early morning protest that was mainly peaceful. Four people were arrested for failure to disperse and a few protesters tossed bamboo sticks and water bottles at officers, said Cmdr. Andy Smith.
No injuries were reported.
Police withdraw and cars were moving as the morning commuter rush began.
Villaraigosa said earlier that the park grounds would be closed after the deadline, while Police Chief Charlie Beck promised that arrests would eventually be made if protesters did not comply.
By 2:30 a.m., most protesters had moved from the campsite in the park to the streets. That put them technically in compliance with the mayor’s eviction order.
But at 4:50 a.m., police on loudspeakers declared an unlawful assembly and protesters were told to get out of the street within five minutes, and the previously peaceful protest turned violent. People wearing masks taunted officers and water bottles were thrown at police in riot gear as authorities started clearing 1st and Main streets just after 5 a.m. Monday.
Beck told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Sunday that he expected to make arrests at some point.
“I have no illusions that everybody is going to leave,” Beck said. “We anticipate that we will have to make arrests.” [...]
How doesÂ blocking the morning commute of everyday working folks help the so-called 99%??? Quick answer, it doesn’t –because it has never been about the 99%.
(Los Angeles Times) –Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Monday praised both Occupy L.A. protesters and the Los Angeles police for a largely peaceful confrontation overnight but said it’s still the city’s plan to move out the camp on the lawn of City Hall.
Speaking on MSNBC, the mayor would not say exactly when the camp would be cleared. When asked whether the eviction would occur sometime Monday, he said the action would occur “when it is safe for the officers.”
“We are working to make sure we have as orderly and peaceful a departure as possible,” the mayor said. “Camping out is not healthy.”
Police said there were still no plans to begin evicting people from the park around City Hall, which was officially closed at midnight. They said their main intention was to clear the streets for morning commuters.
In other words LAPD will move in when Occupy LA least expects it, once their guard is down. They were ordered to leave but they made a conscious decision to ignore the order to vacate, now they will have to [in time] suffer the consequences of their actions.
So be it.
2:12 AM Some one has set up a tent in one of the intersections (1st/Spring?) as spotted via ABC7 helicopter:
Mental rejects one and all.
9:05 AM Protestors have built a tree house at the encampment. Police Chief Charlie Beck told KTLA this morning, “We will move people out of that park if they won’t go.” Beck added that there is no concrete eviction deadline.
Update 4: The eviction…finally…
This is what a dismantled ObamaVille commune looks like...
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Police in riot gear and biohazard suits removed anti-Wall Street activists from an encampment outside the Los Angeles City Hall on Wednesday, arresting an estimated 200 people.
In Los Angeles, busloads of police closed in on the 8-week-old Occupy LA camp after midnight and declared the hundreds of protesters congregated on the lawn, sidewalks and streets around City Hall to be an unlawful assembly, ordering them to disperse or face arrest, in line with an eviction order from the mayor.
Officers then swept into the park, arresting anyone who refused to leave and dismantling the camp. Tents were pulled down and flattened after police peeked inside each one with a flashlight.
Police Commander Andrew Smith said about 200 people were arrested, mostly hold-outs who defied orders to clear the area. Several were removed from trees.
Police Lieutenant Andy Neiman said before the operation that some protesters had been reported to be storing human waste at the site for unknown reasons.Â He later said police entering the camp encountered “a horrible stench.” The grounds were strewn with collapsed tents, trash and other debris.
Police said the eviction operation involved more than 1,000 officers.
Fireworks were set off as the crowd grew steadily more raucous before police arrived. Many protesters chanted, “Move your feet, Occupy the street!”
Protester Anthony Candelaria, 21, a Los Angeles college student among the crowd gathered at City Hall, said before the raid began that he planned to “hold the fort down until they drag us out by our feet.” [...]
Needless to say the mutant, and his like minded comrades got their wish…
LA Times – LA Now
Much of the Occupy L.A. campsite was in shambles early Wednesday morning, with tents uprooted and strewn all over.
Most of the crowd either left or was arrested at about 2:10 a.m., but about three dozen occupiers remained on City Hall’s south lawn, seated on the ground with their arms locked together in a giant circle.
Los Angeles Police Department officers pulled out the remaining occupiers one by one by their legs and arms, putting them into plastic handcuffs. Nearly all of the protesters went limp and had to be carried out. [...]
Occupy Los Angeles eviction poster boy! Isn’t he juuuust precious!
Behold an Occupy LA mutant scumbag...in captivity.
Protester threatens the occupation of banks, country clubs and PRIVATE homes of bankers.
(Fox LA) — Police said the people arrested at the Occupy L.A. site would be charged with misdemeanor failure to disperse for not complying with the LAPD’s declaration — issued just before 12:30 a.m. — of an unlawful assembly. The declaration covered not only the encampment but also a multi-block area in the Civic Center area.
Bail for those under arrest was being set at $5,000.
At a morning news conference, protester Mario Brito called on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City Attorney Carmen Trutanich to reduce the bail amount, calling it an “unfair and inhumane” punishment.
“There is no reason what so ever that peaceful, nonviolent demonstrators should have a $5,000 bail. It’s punitive in nature,” Brito said.
[Keep in mind, the arrested protesters BEGGED to be arrested then RESISTED arrest --ED.]
Brito said the movement will continue and declared that a full moratorium on foreclosures will be the movement’s “calling card.”
“Banks, if you do not heed our call,” Brito said, “expect to see our tents in your lobbies. Expect to see our tents in your boardrooms. Expect to see our tents in your houses. Expect to see our tents in your country clubs.” [...]
The occupation of bank lobbies, boardrooms, private homes, and country clubs are NOTÂ PEACEFUL ASSEMBLIES –it is TRESPASSING –an ILLEGAL UNLAWFUL act.
Step one foot on my land filthy commies, and be prepared to find the business end of a gun staring you in the face.
David Huerta VP of United Service Workers West (Service Employees International Union (SEIU) local is on board:
“I hope we take more Bank of America plazas,” said David Huerta, vice president of United Service Workers West, a local of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). (That effort may be stymied in Los Angeles, where a fence was erected around the bank plaza after protesters briefly set up tents there Nov. 17.)
Update 6: Occupy LA freaks horded urine. Sick!
Workers cleaning up the former Occupy L.A. camp on the City Hall lawn found more than they bargained for.
Sanitation teams wearing masks, biosuits and gloves combed through the piles of possessions, recycling what they could and sending the remainder to the landfill. Some of what was left behind had to be treated as hazardous waste, officials said.
“That’s pee,” said Leo Martinez, division manager of the bureau of sanitation, pointing to a crate of gallon-sized plastic jugs containing yellow liquid. “It’s nasty. You can smell the urine in the area.”
Update 7:Â Post-eviction Occupy LA cleanup.
Just look at this mountain of OccuCommie garbage...disgusting...
Lazy, disrespectful Occupy LA parasites left their squalid mess behind for others to pick up after them.
FYI Occupying derelicts, vandalism and destruction of property is not a right protected under the first amendment.
Ditto above caption.
HavingÂ outlived it's propaganda usefulness, an American flag is discarded, left to lie in the dirt.
(KPCC) –Trash, flattened tents and the stench of urine remained after hundreds of Occupy Los Angeles protesters were arrested or chased out of their City Hall lawn camp.
“We made it quite clear in the announcement that they needed to take their property with them,” LAPD Commander Smith told KPCC. He added that police picked up anything of value, but “much of the rest had human waste on it,” and the LAPD decided they could not book and store items with human waste on them, so those were discarded.
The once-lush lawns are now patches of dirt strewn with tons of debris, including clothing, tents, bedding, shoes, trash and two months of human flotsam. Under a tree is a guitar, a bullhorn, CDs and a black bandanna. Plywood panels erected to protect statues were sprayed with graffiti.
L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine told KTLA he was disgusted by what he saw following the Occupy encampment. “This is a disgrace what’s happened to the public grounds.” Zine said that it’s going to be a big investment to clean up the City Hall lawn. “There was absolute decay to this area,” Zine said. “You’re not going to see any more campouts in Los Angeles parks.”
Plywood panels erected to protect statues were sprayed with graffiti, including the words, “It smells like change.” Early Wednesday, however, the area smelled like urine.
Occupy L.A. refugee Bobby Lopez, 42, of San Antonio left the encampment just before the police raid and said officers wouldn’t let him return.
“They trashed all my stuff,” he said. “My laptop, my radio, my clothing, just everything … My girlfriend actually got arrested while she was asleep in the tent. They dragged her out.” [...]
Hey Bobby, you were GIVEN plenty of notice to gather your belongings, and you KNOW it. Personal responsibility –look it up.
All in all, 25 TONS of debris was removed.
On Wednesday, masked sanitation workers hauled away 25 tons of debris from the lawns around Los Angeles City Hall after police raided the protesters’ camp in the middle of the night and arrested more than 300 people.
Stay tuned for updates.
