PHOTOS: Sheriff's Deputies Break Up Occupy L.A. Protest in LCF

Deputies from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station broke up the assembly in less than half an hour, according to a resident.

Occupy Los Angeles brought their case to La Cañada Flintridge on Friday, when a busload of sign-toting protesters assembled on Commonwealth Avenue. 

A resident, who asked not to be identified, said the 3 p.m. protest, just south of Berkshire Avenue, lasted roughly 20 minutes before deputies from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station broke it up. An email sent to Capt. Dave Silversparre late Friday afternoon was not immediately returned. 

According to the Occupy Los Angeles Facebook page, the group describes its stance as "We are in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and the other occupations across the nation and the world. We are the 99% that demand a world that works through democracy, not corporatocracy. We deserve a representative government, and we will not be silent.''

Interesting, does anyone know what prompted the protest to end up of all places there on Commonwealth Avenue? Was it staged in front of a house the Occupy Movement people wanted to point out as being one of the alleged one percent?

I had the same thought, Chuck. Also, what about the right to assemble? Was this shut down because it was on private property?

These protestors are enciting CLASS WARFARE! They need to be in jail! If we allow people to protest, pretty soon people are going to start demanding fair wages, just like the UNIONIZED teachers. We have classes because some people are lazy and others worked hard. Poor people climbing into the middle class will be the DOWNFALL of AMERICA! There's something rotten in Denmark... NOBAMA!!!

You should be a concerned mother......Your kid's should be concerned about you. Poor people work hard to give their children a better life a life with a good education and a future. Not the future the republican administration left us. You should be ashamed to post this "Nobama" nonesense. People like you are the downfall of society. What century do you think you are living in, that makes you believe peolpe don't have the right to ask for fair wages? Do you own a plantation? Because only slaves were the only ones not allowed to ask for fair wages.

Concerned Mom.., I can agree with the No Obama, but the rest, are you trying to be sarcastic? If not, You're kinda scary.

Without knowing the particulars, it is definitely possible to be in LCF, in the 99 percent, and have your home foreclosed with questionable legality, by the same people who brought us the Great Recession and have gone totally unpunished.
