Occupy Oakland Riot 327 Arrests

The Occupy Oakland day-long protest turned violent with riot police and protesters injured as hundreds of angry demonstrators were arrested in a cloud of tear gas. “Occupy Oakland has got to stop using Oakland as its playground, and people in the community and people in the Occupy movement have to stop making excuses for this behavior,” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan declared after protesters broke into Oakland City Hall, destroyed exhibits and set an American flag on fire. Riot police moved in, firing grenades, tear gas and non-lethal projectiles at the violent mass of demonstrators who threw bottles, metal pipes, rocks, bricks, explosive devices and burning flares at officers of the Oakland Police Department . Oakland residents could hear hundreds of rioting protesters screaming, “Pigs! Pigs! Pigs!” while vandalizing buildings and cars well into the night as families attempted to get some sleep in their homes. Mayor Quan has reached the end of her tolerance regarding violent Occupy Oakland demonstrations. City Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente issued a strong statement, declaring, “It’s an escalation that, in my opinion, basically amounts to domestic terrorism.” The City of Oakland is being assisted by a coalition of law enforcement agencies from across the San Francisco Bay Area in its effort to stop the Occupy Oakland violence.
