Need to Know News: Police evict Occupy Protesters from New York park; Sandusky admits he 'horsed around'

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For November 15, 2011 – Police evict Occupy protesters from New York park, Jerry Sandusky admits he 'horsed around,' but insists he's innocent...

• Police evict Occupy Wall Street protesters from park: "Police in riot gear moved in to New York's Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning, evicting hundreds of protesters from the site where the now-global Occupy movement began. Police arrested more than 100 people, according to Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne. New York City Council member Ydanis Rodriguez was among those arrested, his spokesman, David Segal, told CNN." Are you there? Send your photos to Open Story.

• Sandusky admits he 'horsed around,' but insists he's innocent: "Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky insisted in an interview Monday night he is "innocent" of charges that he sexually abused young boys, denying to NBC's Bob Costas that he's a pedophile."

• Europe's rising bond yields scare investors: "European bond yields climbed Tuesday, with Italian yields surpassing a key threshold, setting off alarms in markets around the world as investors again worry about how the eurozone will solve its debt crisis. Italy's 10-year bond yield exceeded 7%, a benchmark that makes traders nervous, since it heralds the need of a potential bailout for the third-largest bond issuer in the world. That's untenable, because the Italian economy is too big to bail out."

• Former boyfriend of Cain accuser backs her account: "A former boyfriend of Herman Cain accuser Sharon Bialek said Monday that she told him in 1997 that Cain touched her inappropriately after the pair had dinner together in Washington. Dr. Victor Zuckerman told a news conference that Bialek came back to Chicago from the trip and told him what happened."

• NBA season in serious jeopardy, but not lost yet: "If you have even a passing interest in the legal world, David Boies is a name you should already know. He’s possibly the most famous litigator alive. So when he walked in with the NBA players’ union on Monday, you knew the news was bad enough to jeopardize the season. The union has abandoned its right to negotiate on behalf of the players in order to sue the NBA in antitrust court for massive damages within the next 48 hours, according to its revamped legal team. The players in attendance said the decision was unanimous."

    Hello Piers:

    Thank you for interviewing the former police chief of Miami last night. You asked some good questions of him. However, I don't recall you getting an answer from him when you mentioned that the New York police prevented reporters from filming the eviction at Zuccotti Park the other night. I wish you would look further into this issue as it is absolutely legal and the right of people (press) to photograph and film police actions in this country. The police in NY said that" it was for the protection of the media, but that is just a self-serving statement to prevent further discussion. My god, the press routinely covers war and other violent incidents. We will never know what really happened inside Zuccotti Park because the press were excluded deliberately after Mayors across the country were advised by the Department of Homeland Security to "take these actions at a time when the press weren't around." The other issue I wish you would look into and report on is the fact that it is now known that President Obama's FBI and Department of Homeland Security coordinated and advised the attacks and evictions of OWS supporters all over the country in the past week. The Conferences between Mayors was advised by these organizations to invent a legal reason to evict the Occupiers. And all the while, President Obama gave his permission to these departments to do this after telling the American people that "municipalities should do what they want to" regarding OWS protesters. Let's have some light on the trampling of 1st Amendment rights by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI and sanctioned by President Obama. It is no surprise that when the people take power into their own hands, politicians of all stripes become very afraid.
