16. It was entirely peaceful, in this case, and the cops were acting quite casual
It was the usual every-other-weekend march/parade thing in San Francisco: the police had motorcycles in front to block traffic, regular uniformed police walking on the sidewalk, and a couple of cars in back. Once they got to the buildings, the police just hung around at a half-block distance while the Oakland bus thumped loud music and people took over the buildings.
It made for an interesting afternoon, that's for sure. I'm curious to see what happens from here, it's like I suddenly got dozens of new neighbors!
