SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr says officers dismantled over 100 tents at an Occupy protest in a downtown plaza Wednesday morning.

In an early morning news conference broadcast by KCBS, Suhr said they were trying to separate personal belongings from the trash.

There was no immediate word on the number of arrests.

KCBS reports that dozens of police cars, fire engines and ambulances surrounded and blocked off the area. The radio station reports that the police action came as a surprise.

5. DAMMIT!
Shit shit shit shit. :mad: Fuck that shit, I am heading back to Bradley Manning plaza tonight and I hope I am not the only one. Occupy SF was all set for a Fiesta Siesta on Saturday where there was going to be a party and sleepover/teach-in.

So much for our Democratic Party Machine mayor Ed Lee. :puke:
