Upset Over Unoccupied Oakland

A volunteer legal adviser to the mayor of Oakland quit in response to her decision to send police in to evict the Occupy campers. Dan Siegel says Occupy Oakland was unpopular because people didn't like seeing the homeless sleeping in plain view.

I think the city should have supported the Occupy movement in Oakland. It really does represent the 99 percent of Oakland residents who are struggling with joblessness, poverty, unemployment, foreclosures, high student loans and so on. And we should be friendly to them, not try to push them out.
