Hey Oakland, are you going to do anything?

Occupy Oakland: Inciting a riot?

I apologize in advance to the rank and file police officers of the Oakland Police, but I must say that your Department is a joke.

Having an opportunity to protest and speak your mind is great. It’s one of the cornerstones of our country, and is probably the most important. With that said, how do you allow protesters to run roughshod over your city, take over roads, and terrorize motorists while you just stand there? Does anyone remember the L.A. Riots? Don’t be pushovers. Get out there and maintain order so that the city can be enjoyed by all it’s citizens.

I’m not saying the Department has to be heavy-handed, but I am saying a certain degree of order needs to be maintained in order to prevent protests from turning into riots.
