Oakland, First Person

A first-person account of the Occupy Oakland police rout from Tuesday night. It's written by a contributing editor from Reason, who lives a few blocks away. In case you're not familiar with it, Reason is a libertarian magazine, so he's not exactly an OWS partisan.

In his recounting, there is no mention of violence toward the police, only tear gas, riot gear and helicopters costing taxpayers millions of dollars. He was 50 to 100 feet away when former Marine Scott Olsen was injured.
