20. So, what were they listening for? Any evidence this was used...

...for any purpose other than maintaining a reasonable level of public safety? Was anyone disapeared? Did any reasonable, legal protest get shut down?

In my (limited) experience with Occupy in San Antonio the uniformed police were a constant presence. The protesters were assertive, but cooperative. The police were assertive, but permissive within the bounds of reasonable public order. Maybe the police had undercover informants among the protesters, maybe they didn't, but it didn't seem to make any difference. The protester's rights were respected and the protesters behaved in a civil and reasonable manner.
