RAW FOOTAGE – OPD Use Tear Gas & Percussion Grenades on Protesters


on Jan 28, 2012

Police in Oakland, California, have used tear-gas and flash-grenades as a 2,000-strong Occupy Oakland march turned violent, with some protesters claiming that rubber bullets had been also fired into the crowd. At least 300 people were arrested, police say.

The demonstrators attempted to take over a vacant building to use as their headquarters. As they began tearing down perimeter fences around the HenryJ. KaiserConvention Center, police declared an unlawful assembly and used force, according to the Oakland Tribune newspaper.

  12. Since when is trying to occupy a private building peaceful protest ? Police are hired to protect private property, that is what they do. The demonstrators were in the wrong, and looks like they were getting out of control. Sad,, but, mob mentality is mob mentality. The demonstrators were the first to try playing rough,, and they got a rough response. They were playing the Po Po’s game,,, not being very smart. Let this be a lesson to people all over who want to use violence in their demonstrations,,,, it doesn’t turn out well. Stay non violent, and there will never be any justification for this kind of police response. I saw ignorance on both sides. Horrible, and totally unnecessary.
