This can be an open thread, if you want.

According to live coverage on KTLA Channel 9, a CBS affiliate tv station, the LAPD are grouping near Dodger Stadium which is adjacent to the Police Academy and about 3.5 miles from City Hall.

There are aerial shots of numerous MTA public buses lined up there. The plan seems to be to arrest people and take them up to the Dodger Stadium area for processing. About 10-12 cops are getting on each of the buses to go down to City Hall, apparently. First one is moving now.

About an hour or so ago there was a lot of police siren noise going toward downtown on Sunset Blvd. There are MANY police cars lined up at Dodger Stadium, apparently the cops parking there and getting ready to go down to the Occupy encampment on the buses.

BTW, that encampment is across the street from LAPD HQ on 1st and Spring.

The mayor supposedly decided to close it down because he heard there were children staying in the encampment.

More over the squiggle--

About 10 people are saying they will be ok with being arrested. Most aren't interested in that and some are packing up to leave.

There will be more tonight, we're pretty sure.

Anybody who knows something, please contribute !

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
