Cops raid Occupy Eureka
Eureka Police raided the Occupy Eureka camp in front of the Humboldt County Courthouse at 3:40am Monday morning, according to KIEM reporter Kelly May. The photo is from her twitter feed.
May said EPD Chief Murl Harpham was on scene and that multiple arrests were made “as protesters [became] violent.”
Until more information is forthcoming, the Humboldt Herald advises readers to take this information with a grain of salt given the infamous poop and pee inquiry by KIEM on Friday.
Did KIEM have advance notice of the raid? May was the first to tweet the pre-dawn raid as it was going down. KIEM seems to be tight with Harpham and his view of things.
But that’s not the only report of violence. The Occupy Arcata Facebook page has this note:
As heard from an eye witness, Occupy Eureka was raided last night by police, and Hans was severely beaten, the camp has been dispersed.
