I’ve been following the news on the Occupy Oakland Saturday afternoon protest. It seems that the Occupy Oakland protests have grown a little more aggressive and pro active than the typical Occupy protests around the country. Reports are coming in of building break ins and flag burning. Some news reports stated the protesters even threw I.E.D’s (in retaliation) at the police. Today MSNBC.com reported the following:
Oakland officials on Sunday were inspecting damage inside City Hall that was caused by about 50 Occupy protesters who broke in and smashed glass display cases, spray-painted graffiti, and burned the U.S. and California flags.
The break-in on Saturday was the culmination of a day of clashes between protesters and police. At least 300 people were arrested on charges ranging from vandalism and failure to disperse.
