Occupy Denver: Videos capture the scene before and after the hammer came down

The break-up of the Occupy Denver tent city just after 3 a.m. this morning was preceded by a 10 p.m. press conference last night at which the swelling forces representing the 99 percent pledged to stand fast. Check out YouTube videos below that capture the scene prior to police action, followed by pre-6 a.m. CBS4 coverage, plus a post-dawn clip of riot-gear-clad officers standing fast.
