Oakland PD Standoff & Brutal Assault on Occupy Oakland

Abby Martin of Media Roots captured the extremely tense moments of the Oakland PD’s standoff with the Occupy Wall Street protestors before the brutal crackdown occurred.

Things came to a head around 7:45 pm when the Oakland PD started throwing smoke bombs and tear gas canisters into the crowd completely unprovoked. This is what a police state looks like!
