Council President Tony Young called for an end to the meeting when two dozen Occupy San Diego members began chanting.
The protesters asked council members for a resolution of support. One demonstrator says the city is not supporting they're occupation. "They are standing in the way, having police take us down with illegal pepper spray action, violently removing the protestors and their tents in an illegal action."
The council says they can't pass a resolution unless its on the agenda. There was nothing pertaining to the Occupy San Diego Movement on Tuesday's docket.
Then again, the way some cities have caved and/or pandered to the #OWS set, maybe behaving like unruly, uncivil and petulant children is the way to get that coveted good housekeeping seal of approval from the city fathers.
Also, former TARP watchdog and current candidate for Massachusetts U.S. senate seat (running against Scott Brown), Elizabeth Warren claims she laid the groundwork for the #OWS movement.
In a new interview, Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren claims much of the credit for the Occupy Wall Street protests sweeping the nation.
“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” the Harvard Law School professor and former Obama administration consumer advocate told Samuel P. Jacobs of The Daily Beast. “I support what they do.”

Not co-operating with the pigs in a rape investigation? That's the ol' #OWS spirit, girlfriend! And if they do find the sicko, we hope he's brought to... uh, we hope the abuser is provided with counseling resources.
Yeah, kind of like the tea party.
Own it, Lizzy.
