Cities Losing Patience with Occupy Protesters

Hosted by

It began as Occupy Wall Street and spread to other American cities. In Lower Manhattan, the Occupy movement defeated an effort to move protesters out of Zuccotti Park, and it's not yet succumbed to the beginning of winter. In temperate Los Angeles, California, the Mayor provided ponchos during a brief rainstorm, but has since said the protests "cannot continue indefinitely." In Oakland, it's been a different story, with a backlash against arrests leading to tear gas and rubber bullets. We get updates from Kate Linthicum of the Los Angeles Times and Justin Elliott of Salon.com.
