Protesters march through downtown LR

Little Rock police have given the Occupy Little Rock protesters until 6 p.m. Tuesday to make a decision on moving their camp away from Clinton Presidential Library to a nearby location.

The new site is barricaded, and has portable toilets and a dumpster which will be maintained by the city at no extra expense of city funds. Thomas also said the new location would also be more economical for police to monitor than the Clinton Park because it lies on the officers' current patrol route.

"We are prepared to provide police coverage of this parking lot and monitor it to ensure the safety of anybody who is going to be on the lot during an extended period of time," Thomas said.

Spokesman for the group said, “emphasized that they are "not camping; we're occupying." He added that some people choose to stay overnight, but most people have jobs or are students so they come to the site when they have time.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
