“Law enforcement” in New York was obviously coordinated (and timed) with other “authorities” throughout the country in planned efforts to shut down OWS protests. Could one state, ask, or write about those terms without any (at least imposed) fear? No.
In relation, when people begin to rise, clear them out with (as written previously) sanitation ruses (a nationally coordinated onslaught to clear out OWSers). Next, in association, “make demonstrations inside or near a college or university campus illegal and outlaw spontaneous demonstrations.” Then, to make the mockery as blatantly in their (the whining, protesting proletariat) faces as possible, “force those who protest to seek permission from the police.”
