but I don't see any evictions in Washington, DC. McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza are both under the juristiction of the National Park Police. No eviction could take place save under Obama's direct order, the chief of the Park Police would never do it under his own discretion.
Therefore Obama would have to take responsiblity for the eviction, and I don't think he wants to do that. I think he wants Mayors to do his dirty work for him. But Mayor Gray and the DCPD have no jurisdiction over McPherson SQ or Freedom Plaza, therefore Obama cannot shift responsibility to Mayor Gray.
