Occupy LA Returns To Downtown, Is Met With Police In Riot Gear And A Citywide Tactical Alert

Los Angeles was placed on a citywide tactical alert Thursday night when hundreds of people, including Occupy LA protesters, gathered near Downtown LA as part of a demonstration by the group that set up camp on City Hall lawn late last year.

Shortly after 11 p.m., police ordered the crowd to disperse from the area.

“This kind of took us by surprise, we were not expecting them to show up tonight,” said Officer Karen Rayner with LAPD.
