A Fresno County Security Gaurd came in all macho and said the Fresno Occupy site had to pack up and leave within 5 minutes. We asked to speak with an actual cop. about 10 minutes later 2 sherrifs showed up. After speaking with them for a few minutes and showing them that we are not trashing the area and that we are a part of the occupy movement the sherrifs said that we could stay.
