33. You've made some good points, No Elephant, but,
One also has to place the blame for the Oakland situation, as well as similar situations that have arisen throughout the United States since the OWS/Occupation Movement(s) began:

Sure, Police Departments and City Mayors do bear responsibility for abusing their power and running roughshod over people who're exercising their Constitutional rights to protest, but one also has to place the blame squarely on the United States government in Washington for creating the kind of atmosphere that makes this kind of abuse of power by city mayors and police departments throughout the United States possible.
