This post was deleted for the following reason: Metafilter is not a news site, and isn't the best spot for reporting every single new development on the OWS story; if OP or someone wants to work this news into a more in-depth MeFi sort of thing, that might work. -- taz

I know there is an open thread but it is 2 weeks old and the use of the tear gas is, I believe(?) , a first for the OWS protests and represents a significant development.

Shit is about to go down. They just trucked in 4 buses full of cops. #OccupyOakland is singing the Star Wars Imperial March heh.

Not just tear gas, also flash grenades and rubber bullets. Clearly these are dangerous elements being dispersed by the valoriffic police.

First, they ignore you. Then, they laugh at you. Then, they fight you...

I forget what happens next...
