It’s really overkill that they used mounted police to push people out. Those horses are pretty intimidating, and bystanders are frequently hurt. I don’t really know what’s happening to the encampment, whether they’re relocating. I know I saw some of the homeless people displaced earlier this week camping under the I-95 overpass in Port Richmond.
And isn’t it interested that it happened at the exact same time Occupy L.A. was evicted? “I like to think they were following our lead,” Police Commissioner Ramsey said.
