LOS ANGELES (AP) -- More than two hours after a deadline to vacate their encampment, Wall Street protesters in Los Angeles are showing no signs of retreating.

And despite the midnight deadline for the hundreds of protesters to leave the camp at a park by City Hall, police have yet to take action.

Police earlier said arrests will likely be made, but Cmdr. Andrew Smith said Monday that he's not going to discuss timelines or tactics.

He tells The Associated Press that so far the crowd has been pretty cooperative.

Smith says police want to carry out their orders to clear the park as "gently as we possibly can."

He says they hope they don't have to use force or arrest anyone.
