"NYPD & Brookfield have taken the People's Library again. and we love you all," tweet the Occupy Wall Street librarians of Zuccotti Park.
They also raided all the energy bars, waters, and snacks from the re-created library, and threw them away, too. This is not the first time.

"Books are apparently the crosses and garlic of the evil vampire squid," tweets "bookmaker" Kate Black.
"Porn star Sasha Grey reads to children while the NYPD throws books in the trash," says comedian Rob Delaney. "Inhale that, America."
