Re: “Police arrest four and clear Occupy Little Rock camp

As both a resident and employee of a local business downtown, I am more than pleased with the removal of the OLR site. I'm all for freedom of speech, the presenting of new ideas, and the right to assemble, but the time had more than come for the camp. This movement, as someone above also stated, never had a good direction or a plan, and and caused more questions than they gave even remote answers. And yes, it was an eyesore as I went home everyday. The city was more than accomodating to them, and still after all these months they are not a news source, and not presenting their message to the masses. If the occupier's still want to carry on the cause, they can still easily do that from someplace else-no one is trying to take that away from them, and I encourage them to fight for what they believe. But that doesn't require an unsightly camp to do that.
