Occupy Vancouver built a sacred/forbidden fire in a 55 gallon barrel. Vancouver FD and PD entered the park, moved protesters out of the way, put out the fire and took the barrel. The protesters were left weeping, wailing and gnashing their teeth.
No tear gas, no batons, no arrests. Lots of drama, very little trauma. They should make a reality television show with this stuff. They could get that annoying guy from American Idol to host.
