#rsrh #OWS Occupy Oakland ends in tears, tear gas.

(H/T: Verum Serum) Or should that be ‘tear gas, tears?’  More cause-and-effect that way:

Early Tuesday, the city began ousting protesters who have camped out for two weeks at the Occupy Oakland tent city on Frank H. Ogawa Plaza. Police started assembling around the tent city at 14th Street and Broadway at about 3 a.m.

I am afraid that I have perhaps not the greatest sympathy in the world for these people, which might have been made clear by my visible surprise that the Oakland city fathers did not follow the example of then-Mayor Moonbeam and use wooden bullets to disperse the protesters.

And… that’s all that pretty much has to be said about Occupy Oakland, huh?  – Unless they come back, that is.

    From the article: Tear gas was used, as well as bean bag rounds, officials said…The hundreds of law enforcement officers at the scene came from departments around the Bay Area, including the Alameda County Sheriff’s Deapartment, Berkeley, UC Berkeley, Hayward, Fremont, Pleasanton, Union City Newark, Alameda, the CHP, Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Jose.

    It’s like Doctor Allcome but with tear gas. Nice to see that Oakland was serious about this problem.

    Damn. I was hoping it would end in grapeshot.
    What? Do unto others before they would do unto you, right?

  • Jeff says:

    Grapeshot is pretty ‘old school’ crowd control. Though just a taste of what REAL revolutionaries have to face would do them a world of good. The ones that survived anyway. (Nice thought, but don’t really wish violence on anybody)

  • Kresh says:

    I wish no more violence upon then than they wish upon me.

    Yes, that means they get the first blow in the fight. The will not survive the second blow of the fight.

    People who don’t play by societies rules deserve it. Actually I would have loved to see them get a nice little beating.
