Poll: OWS, WTF? Should They Have Been Kicked Out?

0

The interwebs is all ablaze this morning, after the city surprised Occupy Wall Street protesters with a late-night eviction from Zucotti Park and the arrest of about 200 people.

The park served as the birthplace for a movement that has swept across the nation in just two months, since a group of activists angry about the unbalanced influence of wealth in government first took up residence in the Financial District-area park.

But public reaction to the city giving the activists the boot is mixed. Some are expressing gratitude that the park got cleaned and the space reopened for locals, while others say the city pulled a dirty trick with the late-night maneuver. Some activists are also alleging police mistreatment, saying they were overly aggressive in how they handled activists. What do you think?
