Forum Post: Occupy Oakland videos of protesters throwing paint at the police

Violence of any kind, including, throwing paint at the police cannot be tolerated by the occupy movement. The videos showed the demonstrators surrounding the police in a threatening and intimidating manner instead of calm and peaceful. This is what is going to get looped over and over again on Fox news and other media. THIS CANNOT BE! Not when we have come this far. Please, please non-violence at all times. The videos are on Daily Kos.

Here is the link http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/10/27/1030470/-So-Where-Were-These-People-Who-Were-Throwing-Rocks,-Bottles,-and-Paint.

Daily Kos received 2 videos of protesters throwing paint on the police. They have not yet found any videos of the protesters throwing rocks or bottles tho a protester on one of the news shows said they did but they could all be agent provocateurs-who knows but we have to meet violence with non-violence. If you scroll down to the bottom of the article "Where Were These People Who Were Throwing Rocks, Bottles and Paint you will see the two videos.

That was after the tear gas and rubber bullets and flash bangs. Not before.
