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!
Interesting to note, Obama is right across the bay at a $7500 a plate fundraiser in San Fransisco, while Oakland PD are clearing out his activist voting base in Oakland...
Like most things Obama does, this too was a failure.

Indeed. Can't wait to see the NYC losers get dispersed by the NY winter weather.

10:36PST Police using tear gas
Police are using tear gas against protesters who have gathered again at Frank Ogawa Plaza, at least the second time on Tuesday they’ve deployed the tear gas. Witnesses at the scene say protesters threw bottles at police before the tear gas was released. Protesters dispersed to the east of Broadway, and the gas fumes were heavy in the air. Between 200 and 300
protesters gathered for an earlier round at Frank Ogawa Plaza before the confrontation took place.
Protesters continregroup, march toward Frank Ogawa Plaza
A group of protesters has regrouped and is now returning to Frank Ogawa Plaza, near where police deployed tear gas earlier.
Oh I enjoyed watching that... thanks!
The coughing and gagging was music to my ears.
Easy-they can move the protest over to SanFran and protest 0bama’s lavish fundraiser..
Don’t believe it. The administration wants confrontation so they can institute strong measures.
LOL, Howie was chuckling about his new "fleabaggers" photos all afternoon.
Could you tell me specifically where on his website you found that pic? I looked all over howiecarr.com and couldn't find them. Thanks...
you may not be far off the mark - it was a desired outcome of the Tea Party that didn’t happen no matter how much was instigated... so another ‘party’ was invented - the useful idiot sheep we now see flocking around city centers seeking ‘justice’.
Scroll down to “Howie’s Photos” under the poll question.
The Tucson NBC station tonight covered the Oakland tear gas with video...:^)
All those police officers acting stupidly at the same time; how sad.
Obama is ordering crates of beers for their visit to the White House now.
That video is neat. Just hell when they get their comeuppance with stun grenades and tear gas, poor babies.
Remember that well from basic at Fort Leonard Wood in 1955.
You play stupid games you win stupid prizes. The Occupy whatever crowd thinks this nation is a police state. What a joke they have been a public nuisance for a couple of weeks using it as an open sewer & when told to leave by the duly elected & appointed civil authorities they refused .
So the cops deployed CS gas & flashbangs big deal CS sucks but is for the most part non toxic now if the cops were using some of the tear gases from WWI those were in fact poisonous & frags then they would have a reason to bitch so as far as I am concerned they got no cause to gripe.
I fail to see what they are upset about. The average American today lives better than the King and Queen of England did 150 years ago.
I hope we are not glad, however, that the stampede this provoked left a person badly injured in the street.
My brother was in Ft. Leonard Wood in 1958, but you were gone by then. He went on to SHAPE in Paris.
Occupy Your Life
As do I from Fort McClellan in 1982 .
They are trying to get their “Kent State” moment. So far, it hasn’t happened yet.
On a side note: I went through the gas chamber at Camp Lejeune 6 times in one year prior to deployment for Gulf War 1. CS is nasty stuff, but you can build up somewhat of a resistance to it after repeated exposure. By the 6th time, I could almost almost sing the entire Marine’s Hymn without my gas mask. I still would have preferred to be somewhere else though.
All we are saying is give CS a chance.
I spent two years in Germany, I really liked the country and people.
Went on leaves to France, Belgium, Italy and England, but none compared to Germany, was like going home again.
