300 arrested at Occupy protests in Oakland - latimes.com

Oakland’s Mayor Quan,
Quan said that at one point, many protesters forced their way into City Hall, where they burned flags, broke an electrical box and damaged several art structures, including a recycled art exhibit created by children.
She blamed the destruction on a small "very radical, violent" splinter group within Occupy Oakland.


"This is not a situation where we had 1,000 peaceful people and a few violent people. If you look at what's happening today in terms of destructing property, throwing at and charging the police, it's almost like they are begging for attention and hoping that the police will make an error."

Won’t have to beg long with Chicago PD for a fight, come May and the G8.  Going to be a hot spring.
