Police moved in at 3:30 a.m. this morning after protesters put up at least three tents to shield themselves from persistent rain. The officers ordered protesters to remove the tents and they began to comply. Things fell into disarray as at least 12 squad cars arrived and police shoved a cameraman to the ground, multiple eyewitnesses said.
