For background, please see Sunday night's Live-blog covering the beginning of the eviction period. Tonight LAPD has assembled a much larger force of police & it seems unlikely they will back down.

Will update with images & news asap.

9:29 PM
At this moment, the police are loading up at Dodger Stadium in 11-15 busses. Various helicopters belonging to local news broadcast video of the police assembling.

9:35 PM
Busses have begun leaving Dodger Stadium on their way to 1st & Spring.

On Monday the police came, visited, & left the camp.

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.
