    What citizens have turned against it?? You?

    The problems they are having are problems of Oakland and not the group per se - I myself admire them even more than the other occupy groups for their courage and determination to stick it out despite having to contend with serious issues of poverty and homelessness in their encampment, one of the most brutal police forces and high-crime areas in the nation, and now murder in their midst. Downtown Oakland gets dicey as soon as the 9-5 crowd goes home. I commend OO for the courage I lack in hanging in there.
