Last friday in Oakland (a neighborhood in Pittsburgh), the police were, well, insane. There was a full-fledged police state, complete with chasing down any suspects and beating and arresting them, tear gas, LRAD sound cannon, dispersal orders without permitting dispersal, etc. etc…. but no protest. There was a gathering of students, but there were no banners, no chants, no rioting, no nothing. Just a flyer that had circulated. Anyhow, I found myself without the mental energy to put it all together, all of what happened (but posted some pictures). Fortunately, we now have this crimethInc. report.
