Occupy Wall Street Open Thread

NYC Mayor Bloomberg had Zuccotti Park raided by police last night, choosing the late hour "to reduce the risk of confrontation in the park, and to minimize disruption to the surrounding neighborhood."

Hours later an injunction was issued against the city, allowing the protesters to return to the park.

At a morning news conference at City Hall, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city knew about the court order but had not seen it and would go to court to fight it. He said the city wants to protect people's rights, but if a choice must be made, it will protect public safety.

Yes, Bloomberg believes your Constitutional rights are expendable for the sake of "public safety."
