While filming a police line at Occupy Oakland after midnight on Nov. 3 following the Nov. 2 general strike, an officer opens fire and shoots me with a rubber bullet. I was standing well back. There was no violence or confrontations of any kind underway. At 0:31 seconds you can see a tall officer in the front raise his weapon and then fire. This is the full clip of the incident. Not sure what the quality will be upon upload. The video can also be seen on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0pX9LeE-g8
