Despite police warning, Occupy Tampa protesters vote to risk arrest and stay on sidewalk

On the third night of their overnight occupation of part of a sidewalk near Curtis-Hixon Park, Occupy Tampa activists were told by Police they had to leave.
Two nights earlier they had been told it was OK to camp along the sidewalk as long as they were not inside the park after 10 p.m. and left room on the sidewalk for pedestrian traffic.
Sunday night a police officer who would only identify himself as Officer Rice approved of the group’s new camp. On tape he said, “They can stay on public property.”
But Tuesday night the ten or so Tampa Police had a different message.
