OAKLAND -- A crowd of as many as 100 protesters marched through downtown Friday, breaking car windows and a window at Barack Obama's local campaign office.
Officer Johnna Watson, a spokeswoman for the Oakland police, confirmed in an email that a window of Obama's campaign office at 16th Street and Telegraph Avenue was smashed.
Police also confirmed that several car windows were broken. The protesters began organizing about 9 p.m. and marched up Broadway.
Police also said they were following the protesters during the march.
Can’t say I am sad they vandalized obama’s campaign office. lol
Wait for it:
ABC says it was Tea Party
Since they’re lawless - and the political persuasion isn’t mentioned in the first paragraph - can we assume ‘democrat’ or democrat protected victim group?
Hmmmm, I can’t seem to find what they were protesting about. Must have been something the msm does not want us to know.
NBC has doctored the tapes to make it look like middle class white men...
Yes indeed. Your comments are then backed by a lack of photos which would most likely confirm their membership in one or more victimhood groups. We’re a cynical bunch, aren’t we??!!?? LOL
A report on FoxNews identified them as the Occupy movement.
The DNCp now says they were Tea Partiers? Just once I’d like to see the DNCp taken to court and have to pay out a massive settlement or fine.
I'm guessing that particular act of vandalism was performed by a false flag provocateur in the otherwise clueless crowd.
This will appear to distance Obama from the general Occupy movement, and be used by the media to portray Obama as more centrist.
The article doesn't say, but I'm reasonably sure it was Holder's people, trying to re-distribute wealth. Were there stores to loot? (If they voted on the merits of a candidate, rather than his race, I wouldn't jump to that conclusion.)
Once they start destroying property, they aren’t “protesters” anymore.
Sorry, I don’t do sarcasm tags. I know it makes some of my comments a little hard to follow, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.
No doubt Christian conservatives miffed that Chick-fil-A ran out of food.
OAKLAND, Calif. President Barack Obama's campaign office in Oakland had a mess to clean up Saturday morning.
Around 9:30 p.m. Friday night, some demonstrators broke away from an Occupy Oakland protest march and smashed the windows of the campaign office on Telegraph Avenue.
They were protesting a police shooting that took the life of an 18-year-old high school student in May.
Just wait until Nov. 6th it will get worst, as Obama will be defeated...
so prepare..its how they get attention
What you said BUMP. I feel the same way.
“...Police say a suspect shot BB-gun pellets and threw an object through the window of the office located in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue.
The incident was reported at 7:25 p.m. Thursday...”
Different address given.: mistake or another one?
With today’s media who knows...
Cue up Brian Ross...
What happens 11/6? /sig

The author must have slept through Journalism 101 since he failed to state who is prosting and what is being protested.
No evidence, just guessing, any facts to the contrary quite welcome.
Oh okay. I’m sorry, I thought you were reporting what you had seen. You should probably word it a bit differently. People going by will probably think you actually saw an ABC report. Not trying to be hostile towards you, but that was misleading at least to me.
Have a good one, SmithL.
What's a BB-gun pellet? Is that like a AK-47-ICBM?
Tea Party...has to be.
This is big news. It’s the 0bama regime finally doing something about the economy, yay! They are now trying out their next stimulus package. See, this is how it works: Break windows, purchase orders for new glass, work for glaziers, they get paid, they spend it, and with enough glass breakage, our economy will be BOOMING again. What a genius this... “man” is.
Hey this is Oakland a suburb of San Fransicko.
Its expected behavior.
That’s the one.
Just another Saturday night in Oakland.
Yes we are - and usually right too...
Like the 5 or 6 shooting deaths that happen in Chicago every Friday night?
They got windows in Oakland? Who knew?
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. Cicero
What’s a BB-gun pellet? Is that like a AK-47-ICBM?
It’s more like an M-16 arrow.
"Following?" Why weren't they kicking some ass? Why do we employ them for protection if they won't break up lawlessness that's in front of them? Were they following to clean up with brooms and dustpans?
True .. but he not only wants strife, he wants riots; and insurrection .. giving Obama the opportunity to exercise his Martial Law EO.
And .. I think he wants it now .. he could stop the election .. forever, and he could declare himself permanent “Ruler”.
I don’t think our military would follow him .. but it’s just too horrible to think about.
It's at least at the level of a phone call from someone who should know.
