    Really?  What evidence is there of that?  It seems to me like if that were the case, there'd have been lots of trouble before now.  Instead, they do their non-violent protest thingie for two weeks and all of a sudden go all "hardcore" anarchist?!?   There is something "hardcore" going on, but I suspect it's not the Occupy folks....

      A couple of days ago, signs appeared on the edges of the zone that stated that the space was not permitted (that is, without a permit) and never would be permitted and that no police were allowed in the zone.  They have a perimeter patrol to confront police and media.  They chased off media who attempted to film the Iran hostages who spoke there this week.  They have become increasingly hostile to police, media and politicians this week.
