Live Blog: Police appear to be staging near Frank H. Ogawa Plaza (Oakland)
Source: Oakland Tribune

On Wednesday morning, city workers had fenced off the lawn at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland. The previous night, 1,000 protesters clashed with police after two Occupy Oakland encampments in the plaza were dismantled earlier in the day. After a calm Wednesday, protesters returned in the evening and tore down the fence.

9:15 p.m.: Police starting to organize
Police appear to be staging together several blocks away from the protesters. They're using a garage at the Clorox Building at 1221 Broadway. Helicopters continue to circle overhead. Word is circulating through the crowd that some police action may occur at some point, perhaps at 10 p.m. when Frank H. Ogawa Plaza closes. Police have taken no action so far. The first tent has gone up at the plaza, erected by a protester who is using a black bandana as a flag.

I worry that tempers could be shorter on both sides of the barricades tonight.

3. Gosh-darned protesters.
Always "clashing" with our brave men in blue.

Sometimes, my anarchistic side wishes that the MSM could see a real "clash." I have to keep reciting the mantra, "non-violent, non-violent." It takes self-discipline of a very high order to smile and give somebody a flower when he's beating the daylights out of you.

the Police Militia of Oakland is going to attack Americans?
