OAKLAND, Calif. -- Police used tear gas and flash-bang canisters Tuesday night to disperse a group of hundreds of Occupy Oakland protesters that was calling for the crowd to retake Franklin Ogawa Plaza by city hall.
The tear gas and flash-bang canisters were used by police at about 7:45 p.m. near the intersection of 14th and Broadway. The crowd of 500-to-1,000 people immediately cleared with people rushing away from the scene with their hands and handkerchiefs covering their faces.
KTVU reporter Jana Katsuyama was on the scene when the tear gas was used and said that the gas remained in the air for ten minutes after it was used. One person was seen injured and bleeding profusely near the intersection.
BART announced that the 12th Street Station has been closed in the wake of the police action.

A happy ending ....
Threatening to kill a white TV reporter probably didn't do much for the cause in Oakland.
Link includes video of the "incident".
The videos should be enjoyable. Grab Popcorn!
OWS is over - I said it last week. Obama and the Dems milked it for whatever PR value there was, Sharpton and his ilk have had their TV-face time, and the point about the “rich” and “Wall Street” has been made. Now the dirty hippies have become an embarrassment.
Following this, the MSM has also dropped all national coverage of OWS. There is no story any more.
The cops can now clear out the bitter-clingers without any concerns about national TV coverage.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes...
I haven’t seen any mention of OWS on the local or national news since late last week. If they did cover it, I am willing to bet it was around the crowd in NYC.
Who has to pay for the Clorox to disinfect the area.

Knots on the had would be a good prize
I had to add a comment to that video
Ironic...Clorox’ HQ is 1 1/2 blocks away from where this happened.
I worked in that HQ for 16 years...good times...../s
Was listening to Glenn Beck this afternoon for a short time and he played a recording of some radical who was saying that they should just storm the tower where the bank honcho is, drag him to the street and kill him. ( words to that effect). I know some think Glenn is a bit off but one thing is for sure, he loves this nation and is worried sick about what is happening and is trying to wake people up to the things these radicals will do.
Oh and he played some tape with the voice of a Lisa ( didn’t get the last name) but she is said to be guess who? Cindy Sheehan and she is espousing radical activity to include destruction of property.
If these radicals are not stopped, we will see violence like we have seen in Europe.
Screw ‘em if they can’t take a joke!
Yep that will make em move alright. Having gone through the gas chambers and mask clearing...this is not fun....good for the cops.
It is a suite thing. Suits them. To be swept out of that public space using tear gas. Probably smells better than the offal they came to be living in,
CS does clear the sinuses.
Had an old Drill Sgt was so accusatomed to CN he could stand in the chanber maskless.
He tried it with CS.... once.
See tagline -
No such things as ‘bleeding profusely,’ either someone is bleeding, or they’re not.
I did too and to my surprise I had at least 4 responses by the time I stopped chuckling, some even offering me violence.
Never posted a comment on a u-boob video before ... those guys seem to be serious :) LOL!
