In response to the latest raid on Occupy Oakland, in which the Oakland PD “dismantled” the tent city.

“The city sent police to evict this camp, arrest people and potentially hurt them. Obviously, we’re not on the same page. It’s an amazing show of force to move tents from a public place,” Siegel said.

I tend to agree with the occupier who says that the city is in a lose-lose situation.  Crackdowns used to work but it does not seem like evicting the camp at this juncture is going to make things easier on the city in the long run.
