44. It's remarkable that the crowd in Oakland was so well behaved
when you think about it because the OPD started raiding them at 3:30 that morning and this assault on Olsen happened more than twelve hours later.

They didn't retaliate. They didn't start breaking anything. They marched and when they were blocked from moving, they stood still and chanted.

It really says something about who these people are that after twelve hours of being arrested, dispossessed, watching their camp being destroyed before their eyes, after being threatened and gassed and shot at, they didn't deviate from their principled non-violence.
