Police clear tents from Occupy site in DC

A U.S. Park Police officer removes a wooden structure from a tent at McPherson Square park in Washington, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012. Park Police entered the square before dawn to enforce a no camping law on Occupy DC protestors in Washington, one of the nation's last remaining Occupy sites, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012. McPherson Square is a federal park near the White House, where demonstrators have enjoyed special First Amendment protections by virtue of the square's designation as park service property. The regulations permit protesters to remain onsite at all hours with tents, but bars them from camping or laying down bedding material. ( (AP Photo/Cliff Owen))
