Thanks to the Mayor Sam Blog for posting videos of the breakdown in 'negotiations' between the City of LA and the Occupy LA movement.
The political hot potato that the big mouths are trying to avoid having to handle, is basically how, after weeks of ignoring the Occupy LA's occupation, the Mayor, Chief of Police, and the City Attorney are going to deal with the mess they have allowed to develop.
Interestingly, the Mayor dispatched a deputy to the meeting to state the Mayor's position, and Chief Beck had one of his executives in attendance too. But it does appear that the City Attorney ducked out of this meeting. Perhaps it was thought that the meeting would be more productive without the City Attorney threatening to arrest protesters, again?
