where mayor quan spoke today. >> reporter: she wants the protesters to leave this encampment immediately. but not only are there still a lot of tents here behind me in frank ogawa plaza, they are now building pallets to raise them off the ground. so everybody is digging in for the long haul rather than leaving as the mayor has demanded. she was here making those demands last night. >> the risks are too great for having an encampment out there. i need to have my police resources out in the community and neighborhoods that traditionally had much more violence and need the police more. it is time for the encampment to end. >> reporter: the mayor's called for protestors to peacefully break up camp. it came after a murder outside of the camp last night. a man was shot after being beaten by a group of men. campers say the victim often visited the camp but that his
killing had nothing do with them. >> he's a good kid, didn't bother nobody, just want something out of life, ended up at the bad end of the stick. >> reporter: regardless of whether it happened because of the camp, quan says it under scores a need for a clean-up of the whole area. church leaders aren't so sure. >> i support "occupy oakland." i have been there. i walked it. i have set in on generally assemblies. their principle is the principle of everyone who wants to be successful and victorious in the way they live in america. >> reporter: the oakland police officers association says oakland is in a state of emergency and sent an open letter to "occupiers" saying, quote, please, we ask you, leave frank ogawa plaza peacefully and immediately so oakland police can get back to work fighting the devastating crime that's occurring in our neighborhoods. it remains to be seen if the "occupiers" and others will agree. >> yes or no question. should the encampment be allowed to stay? yes or no? >> i'll leave that in the hands of the lord.
>> reporter: now, we have also heard word from other agencies that they are not interested in cooperating with the oakland pd if they do come in and raid the camp. they are upset because they already raided it once and obviously the camp has regenerated so even alameda county sheriff's office is having some reservations about that this afternoon. grace? >> so it looks like the oakland police department is on its own should they decide to raid in the near future? >> reporter: , you know, that's not for sure at this point. we just know that other agencies have expressed major reservations and they would probably need some sort of guarantee of what's going to happen in the future before they would participate at the very least. >> all right. anne makovec live for us in oakland, thank you. that's oakland. how about san francisco? businesses in the ferry building say they are fed up with "occupy" camp in the justin herman plaza of the complaints of shop lifting and break-ins increase as well as human waste in the park and surrounding areas. the park's property managers

"occupy santa rosa" protestors can keep their camp out decide city hall. each one has to apply for a permit to camp and to renew the permit every two weeks. santa rosa city council passed that plan on a vote of 5-2 at a special meeting. the city manager says she is considering hiring private security now to patrol the camp. richmond's mayor is under fire from veterans this afternoon. she skipped a veterans day event today in order to join "occupy" protestors. >> a good way to really support veterans is to promote the values that veterans -- many of them fought for, many of them died for. >> organizers of today's veterans day memorial say that the mayor has little respect for the country and its traditions. at this hour one of the nation's largest veterans day parades in the nation is getting way in san jose a chance for everyone to honor
the servicemembers who have served our country. anser hassan reports from downtown san jose where ceremonies have begun. >> reporter: it's not the weather they wanted but even a little rain camp dampen the spirit out here. we are at the start of 93rd annual san jose veterans day parade. we have seen all kinds of costumes and uniforms, some dressed from colonial times or world war i, others in more contemporary fatigues but all in support of the red, white and blue. 96-year-old may was a nurse in combat uniform when she landed on the beaches of normandy at the and of world war ii. >> i was there on d-day. we crossed the channel on little boats from england over to france. >> reporter: a veteran of world war ii, she believes there are many reasons why we need to remember america's veterans of war. >> we're free, able to make our own decisions. >> reporter: that's in part why today's 93rd annual san jose
veterans day parade has continued on for so long. >> if we don't treat our veterans well, no one will step up and serve their nation. >> reporter: gary is the grand marshal of today's parade. he served in countries such as iraq, kuwait and bosnia. he believes veterans day has changed since the vietnam era when soldiers were blamed for the politics of the time. >> i think everyone recognizes now that regardless of politics, that they are sacrificing, their families are sacrificing and they should be remembered and thanked. >> reporter: active soldiers say that support can be just as rewarding as the work they do. >> especially during this time with the economy the way it is, they see their supporters and they understand the sacrifices we make. it really makes me feel proud to see that we have so much support. >> reporter: the parade runs from now until 2:00 or 3:00 this afternoon the if you decide to make it out, keep in mind there's lots of road
