Just in: Los Angeles to enforce its laws. Well, one law, anyway.

In a bold move, the mayor of Los Angeles said on November 25 that the city will soon be enforcing one of its laws. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said the city will stop allowing people to illegally camp in a park adjacent to City Hall, a mere seven weeks after the first campers showed up. (See "Villaraigosa announces impending shutdown of Occupy L.A. Camp.")

Villaraigosa and Police Chief Charlie Beck said campers who refuse to leave the park will be dealt with harshly and may not get the free housing or other incentives the city will be giving to the others. Or at least they won't get as much.

No word yet on whether Los Angeles may try to enforce other laws.
