Baltimore Activists Occupy City Hall; Demand Protest Guidelines, 16 arrested

According to Jake Carlo of the City Paper:

An incredible scene unfolded at [Baltimore’s] City Hall early this morning as 100 or more police, including a large number of high-ranking officers, swept City Hall to arrest and imprison 16 student protesters who had for a few hours occupied a city council meeting room.

Police moved on the building about 3 a.m., with roughly 50 officers entering through a side door about 30 minutes after a small group of supporters keeping watch in front of the building started to break up and journalists on the scene began debating whether to pack up for the night.
