Occupy Oakland | Video of Riot Police Firing Tear Gas Flashbang Grenades Critically Wounding Veteran


Police have clashed with hundreds of demonstrators in the U.S. city of Oakland. It happened when hundreds marched to show their anger at police clearing an “Occupy Wall Street” camp. Officers shot several rounds of tear gas into the crowd, who were trying to reclaim their position within the city centre. Earlier on Tuesday, 85 people were arrested, after they refused to take down their tents as part of the nationwide movement against corporate greed.


Footage from the Occupy Oakland protest, October 25th, 2011. After protesters ran to the aid of a badly-injured person, Oakland Police deliberately lobbed a flash grenade into the crowd. Whatever you think of the Occupy movement, police behavior of this kind is criminal and should be prosecuted.

    Don’t these cops realize they are being used and are being traitors to their own country…Benedict Arnolds…They are acting like the Gestapo for the love of God…! Don’t they know they are stealing everything from them too? Why do they think they can’t pay their mortgage…they have to work 1 or 2 extra jobs on the side and their wives are working 1 or 2 jobs and they still can’t make ends meet….What’s next? The National Guard like Nixon did….? How many will die for fighting for our freedom and National Sovereignty? This is a disgrace…It is our First Amendment right to peacabley assemble and demand a redress of a very many grievances by the U.S. GOVERNMENT….The U.S. GOVERNMENT BROKE THE SOCIAL CONTRACT IN MANY WAYS…This is going to get ugly all because a few hundred greedy bastards want to not only own everything, but everyone….That is never going to fly…This founding principles of this Great Nation are Life, Libery and the Pursuit of Happiness…..FREEDOM….Not debt slavery by misallocation of our wealth, which is done via deception, stealing and redistributing OUR WEALTH…Paul Volker said in an interview the other night…this change in the distribution of the wealth, where it all goes to the top 1% began 15 years ago..under THE CLINTION ADMINISRATION…Though all of the Presidents and Congress have contributed to the attempt to STEAL AMERICA right out from underneath us….!!! Throw the politicians out America! Restore the U.S CONSTITUTION……ABOLISH THE FED…..MAKE THE CRIMINALS PAY!!!

    This is senseless Government violence which serves as a distraction that the media gobbles up and publicizes. However, and this is important, what the media DOESNT particularly focus on, is how many families have lost their homes in Oakland, how many people are bleeding from debt, how many people don’t have jobs, and finally how a collusion of Bankster power controls local politicians. Oakland is notorious for police brutality, the city should be sued, the mayor fired, and the police chief needs to face terrorism charges. But look what happened to white shirt in NY – basically nothing, and JP Morgan gave them a nice fat “raise”. The temptation is to retaliate, but no way! That’s what the pigs want.

These decisions to beat us down….can only make the situation worse…..and worse…and worse……do they really think they can stifle the spirit of the whole world with this evil crush?

      Rob, RT NEWS reported yesterday that the people have been trying to recall the mayor of Oakland…I guess she is rotten…I guess she was in Washington meeting with LOBBYISTS when this all occurred…She ordered all of the protestors to be gone before she gets back from D.C….What a bum! I knew it was the Mayors who were to blame for this bs….the cops need to wake up!
