Re-Occupying City Hall Park (For an Hour Anyway…)

I was asked to shoot the command staff of the team that handled the Occupy LA eviction last November. Considering all the things that went wrong in the other evictions around the country (UC Davis, Boston, Oakland), I have to give the department props for handling it as thoughtfully as they did.

Credit goes mainly to Deputy Chief Jose Perez, who ran the show from police headquarters across the street. He told me this photo was take only a few feet from where he was standing the night of the eviction.
