Oakland police arresting about 100 protesters
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | January 28. 2012 | AP

Posted on 01/28/2012 8:43:51 PM PST by Navy Patriot

Police were in the process of arresting about 100 Occupy protesters for failing to disperse Saturday night, hours after officers used tear gas on a rowdy group of demonstrators who threw rocks and flares at them and tore down fences.

Police Sgt. Christopher Bolton said the arrests came after protesters marched through downtown Oakland a little before 8 p.m. Saturday, with some of them entering a YMCA building.

Meanwhile, about 100 police officers surrounded City Hall while others were swept the inside of the building to see if any protesters broke in.

Sounds like we’ll be hearing “torture” allegations real soon. The U.N. fruit loops and ***holes International are going to be all over this.

“Arrests, about a hundred ... officers used tear gas on a rowdy group of demonstrators who threw rocks and flares at them and tore down fences.”

Why, just like the Tea Party! Yeah sure. Remember when the socialists thought they had their answer to real, effective (conservative) grass-roots public protest?
You don’t hear that anymore.

These little thugs are still having trouble with the concept of `peaceful assembly and expression of speech and protest.’

Little Bunnies PO PO,
hoppin’ through the lowlives,
scoopin’ up the hippies and
boppin’ `em on the head.

Go cops! Kick their a**es!

Whether Obama wins or loses I expect riots.

I expect riots before the election, just to make the point that you whiteys better not vote against Obama.

It’s a concern - but I don’t think so. If this goes on, even people in urban “blue” areas are going to get real sick and tired of it. “Occupy This” won’t be so “bold” when the “this” happens to be YOUR neighborhood, business, or community. There’s more of “us” than of “them”, and the ratio is increasing.

It is the standard Alinsky-Leninist method, and part of it is class based civil violence.

Here’s a funny video. Some hippie gets right up front as dirtballs attack the police. Tear gas and flash grenades are deployed and hilarity ensues!

“Here’s a funny video.”

I watched it. Good grief. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the word, “sh_t”, used so many times in such a short period. The camera man definitely needs to expand his vocabulary.

What a shame. One more day, and I’m certain they would have brought the global economy to a screeching halt.

True, but if the general population would be taught and learn the historical track record of socialism, these "occupy" useful idiots would all be workin' at their jobs, or training for them.

Yeah, I know, the government schools and the MSM will never teach the historical continual failure of socialism.

In the good old days in Cambodia, Jan. 1970, an acquaintance of mine (Gen./Gov. In Tam) was in charge of Taing Kauk or Kompong Cham in central Cambodia. A mob of pro-Sihanouk supporters killed two members of the national Assembly who came out there to explain about the legislative ousting of Sihanouk on various charges.

I asked In Tam what he did about this violence and he said that he had his troops shoot into the mob, killing a bunch of them, and ever since that day, he hadn’t had any problems.

One can dream, can’t one. The image of anarchist and communist scum lying “deceased” on the streets of Oakland brings to mind one word, re Vietnam, “PAYBACK”.

There have been several threads on this story.

And this is an update with news of substantially higher arrest numbers after OWS had been denied the second of TWO targeted empty buildings they intended to "occupy", thus breaking news with omitted facts from previous posts.

Additionally, I searched as expected and found no matching articles, which on MSM articles, qualifies as postable.

And finally, no donation to FR is wasted.

LOL, but it is interesting that you should mention this in jest.

Occupy announced this march and the intent to "occupy" a vacant building for use as their headquarters, and threatened that if the met any resistance from the cops, that they would "occupy" the Oakland International Airport, and shut it down, a serious economic threat.

Well, I suspect that a few flash bangs in the face should let Occupy know that the cops (with backing, this time) called their bluff.
