McPherson Square in DC...Before and After Occupy DC Squatters Invaded It

From David Fredozzo at the Washington Examiner, here's a look at McPherson Square park in Washington DC last October, after a $400,000 renovation project paid for with "Stimulus" cash.

This is a pictue of the park from the other day, after the squalor, tents, and human debris from the Occupy squatter camp was removed over the weekend.

Doug Ross, via the Left Wing Institute for Civil Discourse, says that ...

Officials used barricades to cordon off sections of McPherson Square, a park under federal jurisdiction near the White House, and checked tents for mattresses and sleeping bags and sifted through piles of garbage and other belongings. Some wore yellow biohazard suits to guard against diseases identified at the site in recent weeks. Officials also have raised concerns about a rat infestation.

That move left large swaths of open space and raised questions about exactly what would remain of the encampment once the enforcement was over.

We found urine soaked bedding materials, bottles of urine, and in some of the tents we found dead rats,” says U.S. Park Police spokesman David Schlosser.

One protester hit a cop with a brick when the hippies were being removed.
