Video: Oakland CA police use flash-bang stun grenades against peaceful OWS protesters

I’m in Berkeley, only about a few miles away.  Jesus.  This video is outrageous.  They used rubber bullets and stun grenades against peaceful protesters.  Why didn’t the police every use any of these violent tactics against Teabaggers who showed up with guns to protest Barack Obama?  No, they only do this when liberals peacefully hold sit ins.  Not when conservatives show up with guns.  It’s almost as if the police in all of these various cities are hoping to provoke the demonstrators into responding in kind.  I’m actually amazed they haven’t.  More from Mother Jones.
