Who's fault is that?
Occupy Oakland and Oakland police have been playing the blame game with who's responsible for the chaos and violence that erupted in downtown Saturday night. And while it continues to be a chicken-or-the-egg debate, police can say with some certainty that occupiers are responsible for the break-in at City Hall Saturday night

Oakland police released some surveillance that they say refutes claims by protesters that the doors to City Hall were left open, meaning there was no illegal break-in. In this footage, it appears as though someone pried the doors open with a tool, allowing a group of protesters to rush the building.

WhoRThey - well unless you can tell the diff btwn "real occupiers" and  these guys who commit  crimes and violence, you are all the same. Police you crowds, or law enforcement will.

no, no, no, these people are not representative of Occupy Oakland or Occupy anywhere USA. Just in case you don't know, real Occupiers do not condone violence or destruction of property,  the individuals in this surveillance tape, do not represent the 99% and never will.

Wait, you call all cops bastards and pigs, but not ALL occupiers are criminals. How wonderfully two faced!

"The individuals in this surveillance tape do not represent the 99% and never will."Unless elected to represent, NONE of these occupiers really represent anything but their own selfish interests.

The burning of the flag says it all. 

Hey, they were probably forced by police into city hall, they are victims, right?

Occupy Oakland at its finest. Peaceful rioters are the 99%, too!
