The LAPD arrested four protesters early this morning for not dispersing, but the encampment continues, even though Mayor Villagraigosa has declared it illegal. Lawyers have asked a federal court to prevent the Mayor and the Chief of Police from shutting it down, citing the 1st and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. We talk with the Mayor and others about LA's unique handling of what's come to be Occupy Wall Street West. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, a progress report on the Arab Spring.
