Duchon’s dispatch was quickly picked up yesterday evening by MyFOXLA and the LA Times, and since then by all manner of local, national and international media. It’s easy to see why.

Nearly a dozen undercover detectives began joining the camp about two weeks ago to gather intelligence on protesters’ plans for resisting eviction, according to the source, who was not authorized to speak about the matter. The undercover officers gathered information on specific demonstrators who might have posed a potential threat.
