Police are moving into formation creating a wall between jail supporters and Central Booking. Their intentions are unclear. They have allegedly made the statement, "We're tired and we don't want to arrest anybody." But they have brought in at least 4 vans and 15 cops in helmets, with handcuffs and batons.
Lawyers and few spectators going back inside to Supreme Court for hearing on writ, though clerk and stenographer not present. 75 people that were inside left and were unsuccessful in getting clerk and stenographer from Criminal Court to come up to the Supreme Court so the hearing could be held.
Rumors of imminent mass arrests in front of the jail are being refuted by people in communication with cops on the ground. They have been told they cannot block the sidewalk, but are not going to arrest anyone.
