Mayor Bloomberg & Police Defy Court Order Allowing Protesters Back into Zuccotti Park

At 1:00am in New York, a massive police force clad in riot gear raided Liberty Square evicting the Occupiers resulting in the arrest of 200 protesters, falling into the pattern which is sweeping across the States, in Austin, Denver and Portland as well as other states.

While naysayers are claiming laws have been broken by protesters, another important law has been broken today by the police.
