She knows she messed up and a line was crossed. Now she is trying to put down that fire.

1. Little birdy tells her that if she doesn't make nice nice and Scott Olsen dies...
...she's going to be in a world of hurt.

7. The Guard is usually called in to support the cops.
But wouldn't Jerry Brown have to call in the Guard?

9. Yes, and rarely they are federalized and used
in civil rights situations... especially when the unit on call for this is deployed. That is very rare... so we will see, what they have on them kit wise.

2. Tonight Olbermann did a Special Comment about her, and
he really roasted her. Apparently, as a civilian, the mayor was once attacked by the Oakland police, and now she's having the same cops do it for her.

11. I'm watching the tweets on that
Edited on Wed Oct-26-11 11:44 PM by MedleyMisty
There's already a plan to go tomorrow to protest their own issues. But some of them are calling for a show of solidarity. Rumors that the date for Tahrir specifically for Occupy Oakland is next Friday. Also talks of a march to the US embassy.

So yeah - tomorrow the main issue is going to be their own problems with SCAF, but I'll be watching for signs in support of Occupy Wall Street and Oakland and a demonstration at the embassy. We'll see about next Friday.

14. Not as much brazen as damage control...
Brazen would be the Nat. Guard disarming the cops.
