This is just some extra footage a images I have. Please enjoy.

The thing that surprised me really is that lack of confrontations with protest had with police unlike the one in NY. Nonviolence and following the law were major themes that were frequently brought up. The only offence I witnessed was the guy a couple of posts below yelling at the cops.

By the time the protesters got to the North lawn they starting sitting on the grass, stood by the curve, and marked the beginning of the occupation of LA. This could basically go all week long and many people got ready by bringing camping gear.

Around 10:30 am protesters began marching towards City hall from Pershing Square.

Unfortunately, they began unintentionally blocking cars from leaving.

 

On the way to City Hall, LAPD helped block some of the intersections so cars wouldn’t run the protesters over.

The protesters then made it to the steps at the western side of City Hall.

 

The protesters then shifted to the northern steps.

End of Part 2.

Just when I’m about to leave the OccupyLA protest for home, this idiot decides to act macho and starts throwing random verbal obscenities at police up the City Hall steps. I’m surprised at the amount of self-control these cops have and not immediately arresting and kicking this brainless tough guy wannabe’s ass. But he was probably counting on it to give the others a reason to riot.

Also, make sure you listen to the cool cop at the end of the video.
