The "Occupy Oakland" crowd again battled police earlier this week. The protesters throw rocks and bottles. The police respond with rubber bullets, tear gas, and smoke bombs. This video was taken January 28 by an Occupy sympathizer:
The videographer, "brettnchis," explains that the protesters were trying "to take the Henry J Kaiser building" and, in the process, tore down a fence. Estimates are that the Occupy protests have cost the city of Oakland over $3 million.
It is just like the TEA party, right?
