Occupy Oakland: From Peaceful Protests to Violent Chaos (Slideshow)

Most downtown Oakland businesses were closed this morning as employees tried to repair the damages done to storefronts during Wednesday's late-night bedlam that unfolded after a day of nonviolent protests.

Occupy Oakland's General Strike started yesterday at 9 a.m., culminating into a day of rallies, bank closures, and vandalism that resulted in massive arrests and injuries. Here's what SF Weekly captured from yesterday and today's events:
