Oakland Clears Out the Occupiers

Hosted by

In past weeks, there's been violence — and even a shooting death — but today police cleared out Oakland protesters in a peaceful action with only a few arrests for civil disobedience.  The police work may cost more than $500,000. We get an update and hear what's happening to Occupy LA. Also, this year's NBA season may never happen, and we talk with Sheriff Lee Baca about running out of space at LA County jails. On today's To the Point, when their companies are accused of fraud, are Wall Street executives getting off easy?
