Raw video of early hours of police raid on Occupy Oakland tent city

on October 25, 2011

This video was shot by John Osborn of Mission Local during the initial part of the police raid on the Occupy Oakland campsite in downtown Oakland, from around 4:30 am to 6:30 am Tuesday morning. It depicts footage of several hundred police officers dressed in riot gear and armed with helmets, batons, plastic hand cuffs, and megaphones evicting the protesters from the tent city they have been living in since October 10 in front of Frank Ogawa Plaza by City Hall.

This video is a rough cut and has not been edited. There are gaps and changes in the sound level, and it is not entirely in chronological order. This video also contains strong language. Video by John C. Osborne. Additional footage provided by guslto99.

    Occupy (enter your city) is a protest without a cause.

    The left likes to compare the “Occupy” protests to the Tea Party protests. There is no comparison. The Tea Party had a focused goal, downsizing government. There were no arrests. There were no encampments. No one was cussing out the police.

    These “Occupy” protests are freak shows. I’m gong to have to go visit one before they all get shut down. It would be worth the trip just for the entertainment value. It’s like the 1960’s all over again, except without a war.
