Growing Police Threats and Defensive Response at Occupy Santa Cruz
by Robert Norse
Police visibly invaded Occupy Santa Cruz's Tent Village yesterday around noon supposedly in search of someone who hit, shoved, or smacked a city employee. The employee was reportedly engaging in early morning high-volume leafblowing disturbing sleepers there. On the scene were police chief Kevin Vogel, Deputy Chief Steve Clark, a sergeant, several officers, and several CSO's. A threat, reportedly conveyed by Clark, warned that police would move to destroy the camp within three or four days. Clark's similar threats on October 7th frightened Occupy Santa Cruz into moving from Mission Plaza to its current location.
