In Santa Cruz police are re-thinking their options after an unsuccessful attempt to clear Occupy protesters out of a vacant building.

Thirty officers in riot gear tried to clear the Old Coast Commercial Bank building last night. But, demonstrators had barricaded it from the inside. Protesters linked arms, shouted and moved towards police. Officers pulled back to avoid a confrontation. Nobody was hurt.
