Friday Oct 28th, 2011 3:04 PM
With the sun beginning to rise two hours after police first attacked Occupy Oakland at Frank Ogawa plaza, making over 70 initial arrests, the wreckage became even more apparent. Protesters verbally challenged police lines maintaining a perimeter around the plaza and police inside gleefully photographed the damage they had done to Oakland's first autonomous police-free zone.
