Who refused to give up their ground. On the street it had to look and feel. Of a war zone. Police firing stun grenades. -- -- projectiles and rubber bullet. It's fewer guests flying us from the air. The crowd scene here dispersing in seconds running for cover. All the result of a daylong encroachment by police who moved in in the early morning dismantling the protesters tent city.

Trying to take back the -- that'd been -- for more than two weeks taking away people's right to peacefully assemble. In this country you know this is really. Outrageous also overnight arrest in Atlanta with protesters defying orders to vacate a city park. This scene ended peacefully so they -- things. It's a far different result.
