Marking the near-end of at least one phase of the Occupy Wall Street movement, police cleared out a months-long encampment that had taken over McPherson Square just a block or so from the White House. While far less violent than some other confrontations, eleven people were arrested, including one for hitting a police officer in the face with a break. [AP]
