Apparently the San Francisco Police Department tore down the OccupySF encampment again last night. Story and video here.
For out of town folks, it may surprise to learn that the SFPD has a considerable history of brutality toward protesters; every once in awhile some inner demon overcomes discipline -- or perhaps the higher-ups turn it loose?
Supporters of the Occupy encampment will rally at City Hall today at 1:30 for the Board of Supervisors meeting.
UPDATE, October 19, 6:00 am: Stand off apparently. People spoke at the Board yesterday. Mayor Ed Lee said "no way" to encampment in the park. As of this morning, the encampment is in place ... To be continued, I'm sure.
