Not only is the NYPD keeping the press out of Occupy Wall Street as they tear down tents, they also just trashed 5,554 books, according to Galleycat:

The Occupy Wall Street librarians have been tweeting the eviction all night: “NYPD destroying american cultural history, they’re destroying the documents, the books, the artwork of an event in our nation’s history … Right now, the NYPD are throwing over 5,000 books from our library into a dumpster. Will they burn them? … Call 311 or 212-639-9675 now and ask why Mayor Bloomberg is throwing the 5,554 books from our library into a dumpster.”

God, I hope someone got photos of that. Good-hearted people all around the world get very mad when thugs do violence to books.
