Occupy Oakland: Police Teargas Protestors, Use Flash Grenades
I must say, what started as a noble civil protest against the top one percent and the growing income disparity in America, some have turned it into thugs against the police and police against thugs. Street protest must lead to political achievements or else - all the hoopla is meaningless. One thing that can be learned from the Tea Party - is that they turned rage into political clout. So the question to the Occupy movement is -- will your legacy be long lasting via political and legislative accomplishments, or will it be a paragraph on a page?
