Long past time.
From Apollo's link, above:
Bloomberg said this morning that the nearly two-month-old shantytown in the city's bustling downtown had become a haven for criminals and a safety hazard.
"Unfortunately, the park was becoming a place where people came not to protest, but rather to break laws, and in some cases, to harm others," Bloomberg said.
I heard a story today from a friend, who will be known as (MR.X) to protect the identity of the person who spoke with a man he knows (MR.Y).
Mr.X indicated that Mr.Y has no job and barley gets by in life and has somehow managed to scrounge up the money to take a trip from Maine to Jacksonville, FL. Mr.Y has no other funds other then the money he just spend on a fair to get himself to FL. When Mr.X asked Mr.Y where he was going to stay when he got to Jacksonville, Mr.Y indicated he was going to work his way into the Occupy Jacksonville Camp and stay with them rather then rent a room.
I’m no making this up, this is what is going on with some of the Occupy Camps.

Two Occupy Wall Street protesters, one a key leader of the movement, stayed at a swanky, $700-per-night New York City hotel while their fellow protesters camped out in Zuccotti Park...
Peter Dutro, a member of Occupy Wall Street’s finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who attended demonstrations during a business trip, both stayed in the W New York Downtown Hotel
Donations being used, possibly?
Some animals are just more equal than others, IMO
About 1,200 Los Angeles officers staged for hours outside Dodger Stadium before the raid. They were warned that demonstrators might throw everything from concrete and gravel to human feces at them.
