New York has joined the cities that believe there's a time limit on the First Amendment. After midnight last night, police moved in on the Occupy Wall Street camp and began making arrests.

UPDATE: 70 arrests at last report.

The move inevitably raises the question of the end game in Little Rock.

UPDATE: A judge has allowed protesters back into the park, at least temporarily. The mayor has a news conference, says protesters can assemble in park, but no camping.
