The Los Angeles Police Department infiltrated the Occupy LA encampment with undercover officers, used video surveillance, and monitored internet chat and social-networking sites in order to spy on protesters’ activities. The LAPD defended the surveillance operation as a necessary response to reports of protesters advocating violence against police and said a “key concern” was the presence of individuals belong to or affiliated with “radical organizations.”
