Police are standing down as Oakland Mayor Jean Quan allows the "occupiers" to reclaim the city and, presumably set up encampments yet again. The turn of events comes a mere two days after riots swept the city.
“I’m a mayor of a city that has divided opinions on some things,” Quan said. “I think most support the Occupy Wall Street movement. I know you guys don’t like that I look at things day by day, situation by situation. We’re going to do what keeps most people safe.”
