Street Action After Rally and March for Oscar Grant, Oakland, 1/14/09: photos
by dave id
Thursday Jan 15th, 2009 5:23 AM
A crowd of roughly 50 people gathered in the area of 14th and Broadway about 8pm. Riot cops pushed the crowd toward 12th Street. Someone broke the glass in a bus stop and about six Wells Fargo windows at 12th and Broadway, then the cops fired tear gas into the crowd. That group split up into several. The largest splinter headed north on 12th and through City Center shopping area breaking windows of corporate businesses and several cars. That group of about 20-30 then started to head up MLK.

Again. What idiots.

I'm sure Wells, Subway, the gym, the bus shelter, and some guy's car are equally guilty of killing Grant.

The absurdity is beyond parody.

"At least 18 people were arrested, the majority on felony vandalism charges, police Deputy Chief Dave Kozicki said."

They had a shot of that same white SUV above.

Hey this action was pretty good for one small business: the glass window installers. Every time a Wells Fargo gets their windows broken, a local glazier has to come out and replace it. That's a good union-wage paying job, too and many of them are the recently immigrated. Moral of the story: if you wanna support small business smash some more Wells Fargo windows. It's a win, win tactic.
Quick and easy, too. Just don't get caught!

The title says it all.

Grow up and go home. The rest of Oakland isn't amused with your bourgeois self-loathing wild-child antics.

Don't listen to what the guy above just said. Big targets good. Small target bad.

Does it occur to anybody that police provocateurs might've been involved?
