"You'll find out who the police is soon enough"

"You'll find out who the police is soon enough," said the hard-hat on scene at the site of yesterday's Ward Bakery Building collapse, to one participant making his way to today's Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods' (CBN) press conference.

The word from the press conference is that Forest City Ratner contractors doing god-knows-what at the Ward Bakery building called the police to report that a demonstration without a permit was in progress.

Officers, as promised, responded to the scene midway through the press conference.

CBN Co-Chair Candace Carponter told the officers that the "demonstration" was in fact a press conference, and that approximately half the "protesters" were actually reporters.

Officers left the scene without making any arrests.
