Occupy Protesters at Capitol Rotunda, Ready for Showdown

City College of San Francisco student Stewart Stout filled out a form intended to help the Occupy movement keep track of him if he's taken into custody.  He says the state budget cuts have been devastating.

Stout: "I'm willing to risk arrest if it means that we can push this movement forward and win.  And I think it's gonna take a lot of people sacrificing a lot more than a night in county jail in Sacramento to finally have us win."

California Highway Patrol officer Sean Kennedy says the CHP takes security "very seriously" - both inside the Capitol building and on the grounds.

Kennedy: "If you try to camp here, we're left with no choice but to make arrests."

Kennedy says protesters will need to leave when the Capitol closes at 6pm.
