Occupy San Diego-Black Friday

Occupy San Diego - Black Friday

Occupy San Diego is still asking the city for a designated protest area. Today, Occupy Los Angeles is being removed from outside L.A. City Hall. And of course, we're all aware of the pepper spray police actions against Wall Street protesters in Oakland, Irvine and briefly even here in San Diego. Most Americans are aware of their rights to join in a protest march - but what are our rights when protests dot the country and stretch out for weeks?

Over the weekend Occupy San Diego demonstrators announced they will set up tents tonight at 5 p.m. and risk arrest at the Civic Center Plaza.

We hear from the ACLU about protester rights and the former chief of police of Seattle joins us to talk about police tactics.
