The best synopsis and analysis of the extended weekend's events in Chicago I've seen, by Gaius Publius at AmericaBlog. An excerpt:

"These images sum to an establishment that's frightened and feeling under siege. They are afraid that Occupy will have an effect and are determined to stamp it out.

"This is excellent news, in my opinion. It means:

--Occupy still has their attention...

--The Masters of the State are determined — stupidly in my opinion — to make themselves and their cops the news; to send a message, as it were.

"Message sent. I was worried during the winter hiatus that Occupy would become ho-hum, last week's newspaper. The State's preoccupation (heh) means Occupy might still build critical mass."
