Rumors Of Occupy San Francisco Raid Prove Untrue
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) While Occupy San Francisco protesters repeatedly said they anticipated some kind of police action late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning to clear their protest site at Justin Herman Plaza, such a raid never materialized.

Law enforcement sources at the highest level told CBS 5/KCBS/Chronicle insider Phil Mater that the San Francisco Police Department never intended to raid or clear out the encampment. Rather, the sources said police were put on standby because they wanted to be ready in case the recently-evicted Occupy Oakland protestors joined the crowd with Occupy SF.

When it was determined there would not be a large scale joining of protests at Justin Herman Plaza, all the mobilized SFPD officers were released. A source told CBS 5 that SFPD Chief Greg Suhr received a text message directly from Mayor Ed Lee telling him that police could stand down.
