Documentary LAPD evicting Occupy LA @ City Hall Park 11/30/11 Not only were hundreds of people arrested in the police raid in Los Angeles last night but the LAPD and Mayor, having socked each arrested person with a 00 bail, are now refusing to release them from jail and are refusing to allow them to meet with their attorneys. Sobel continued: “California law is clear. Penal Code §853.6 is mandatory in requiring that anyone charged with a misdemeanor shall be released with a written notice to appear.” Eyewitness report from attorney Ian Thompson Ian Thompson is an attorney and the ANSWER Los Angeles coordinator. He is the attorney for arrested activists Mike Prysner and Doug Kauffman. “This afternoon, after finding out where Occupy LA protesters were being held following last night’s assault and eviction of peaceful demonstrators carried out by the LAPD, I went down to check on the status of my clients and others who were arrested. “When I arrived, the doors were closed and a line had formed outside. I saw a notice which read, ‘Front lobby closed until further notice.’ “I knocked on the door to talk to someone. An LAPD officer came out. I told him I was an attorney for two of the protesters being held inside. ‘We are closed,’ he said. ‘You cannot visit your clients or anyone.’ He informed me I could not post bail or talk to anyone there. ‘Call my watch commander,’ he added. “I then called the watch commander with the same request. ‘You cannot see your clients,’ he told

    Thank you for the upload.

    I got there late and couldn’t be inside. So I was one of the various crowd members being chased by cops until 3.am.. I wish I had gotten there sooner. Then again I might’ve been one of the people arrested and placed in a bus without food, restrooms or medical attention. I applaud those who were braver than me and actually did the deal. No kidding, I feel, in some strange way, inspired to do more because of these people.
    Peace, love and understanding.
