So that's that.

Democracy Now hosted Kamran Loghman yesterday to add some context to the UC Davis incident as one of the men who helped the FBI weaponize pepper spray in the 80's.

I can't help but include the specific refutation to Megan's lulz, but the whole interview is informative and interesting.

AMY GOODMAN: Fox’s Megan Kelly and Bill O’Reilly. Kamran Loghman, your response.

KAMRAN LOGHMAN: Well, first of all, in regards to pepper spray being a food ingredient. Aspirin also comes from bark of a tree so does wild yam is a natural herbal thing, but then again, what you derive from that becomes birth control pill. That doesn’t mean the end product is still something that you can eat. It is true that it is being derived from capsicum and chili pepper, but by the time it is weaponized and becomes a weapon grade product, you can’t eat it. I mean, it is impossible to eat the end product. So that’s that.

The whole thing is worth it if only for the vague disbelief in Amy Goodman's voice acknowledging the musical credit to Miley Cyrus for the previous break: "The singer and actress Miley Cyrus, yes, Hannah Montana, a new remix of her song, 'Liberty Walk.'".

Cleaning up the Mess

I shudder to think of the coverage when they discover the weapons cache more than five times larger than #OWS' in my kitchen.

They should have stuck to stockpiling something safer, like pepper spray.

Title says it all. No real news yet. There are no doubt many live feeds up, and this is one of them.

After the fact...

New York Times Reporting #1

2011.11.14 11:03pm
The New York Times has posted:
The New York City police began clearing Zuccotti Park of the Occupy Wall Street protesters about 1 a.m. Tuesday, telling the people there that the camp would be "cleared and restored" before the morning and that any demonstrator who did not leave would be arrested.

But also,
"The city has determined that the continued occupation Zuccotti Park poses an increasing health and fire safety hazard." The protesters were ordered to "to immediately remove all private property" and that if they interfered with the police operation, they would be arrested. Property that was not removed, the police said, would be sent to the dump.

It's hard to imagine what 'restored' means considering the second quote.
