"Breaking News: Occupy Olympia Removed From Heritage Park"

At about 9 AM Friday morning, over 50 state patrol troopers in full riot gear began slowly marching through Heritage Park. As they inched forward at 30-40 feet every few minutes, they inspected each remaining tent they passed to ensure no one remained.

Olympia Power & Light has the story

Worth watching

5th Ave about 10:30 AM

Got these quick pics of the aftermath of a downtown accident. Quite the sight. Fortunately no one seriously injured.  The Olympian now has story up.

Can cooperation reduce vandalism risk?

If the City of Olympia decided to cooperate, work -with- rather than -against- Occupy Olympia people, perhaps that would reduce some vandalism and violence.

I hope City of Olympia is talking with their peers in Seattle and Portland. These Occupy movements may very easily spread and grow. Why not find a way to reduce possible harm rather than immediately cause harm?
