LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 28: Hundreds of Los Angeles Police Officers in riot gear form a skirmish line as they attempt to clear the streets around Los Angeles City Hall of Occupy LA demonstrators after the deadline to dismantle the occupy campsite expired on November 28, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa last week gave the protesters outside City Hall until 12:01 am today to dismantle their protest campsite and leave. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)
