From @DemocracyNow, a massive pile of discarded tents and abandoned supplies left behind at Occupy Wall Street as police order protesters out.

Reports out there that police have a LRAD, also known as a Long Range Acoustic Device. From the Wikipedia page: "The Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) is a distance hailing device and non-lethal crowd control weapon developed by LRAD Corporation to send messages, warnings and harmful, pain inducing tones over longer distances than normal loudspeakers." In other words, sound as a weapon. Whoa. (via @Newyorkist)
