    so much about the protestors health that they beat them with clubs and split their spleens open.

      The protests had to subside or be squashed before the holidays - or at least by the end of December.  They could not be permitted to continue into the election year and begin to affect the elections.  I'll bet this was a concern held by both Republican and Dem elected officials.

      My guess is that they are hoping that a lot of OWS will be demoralized and dissaffected, and declare a pox on both your houses - thereby suppressing enthusiasm of the youth vote and helping conservatives (R & D) in 2012.
