Occupy St. Louis Site Quiet Saturday Morning
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The downtown park that's been the site of the Occupy St. Louis protest was quiet several hours after police arrested about two dozen people. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/rU9KM8) a few Occupy St. Louis protesters were in Kiener Plaza by about 6 a.m. Saturday. Police also showed up two hours later and asked the protesters to take down a tent, which they did. Earlier, police arrested about two dozen people at the Occupy encampment beginning after midnight, then began taking down the tents where the protesters have been for weeks. The arrests began after a federal judge declined a request to temporarily allow the camping to continue through the weekend. The judge scheduled a hearing Tuesday to consider if the protesters should be allowed to relocate in the park.
