Occupy Oakland's 'F*ck the 4th' March Features Burning Flag, 'Kill Cops' Vandalism
While most Americans were celebrating the 4th of July Wednesday, the
degenerate remains of Occupy Oakland held a "F*ck the 4th" march through
downtown which featured vandalism, death threats and a flag burning.
There were a total of 60 marchers in all, far less than the numbers
who crowded the streets a year ago at the Occupy movement's height. They
moved through downtown after dark spray painting anti-police messages
on sites that included "City Hall, the police Internal Affairs Division near City Hall, a clothing store, hotel and a bank." According to Sgt. Roland Holmgren, one of the marchers painted "Kill Cops" on a door at police headquarters.
Occupiers also vandalized a patrol car, breaking a window, and
puncturing a tire. Someone set a trash can on fire. Eventually the march
headed back to Frank Ogawa Plaza where the Occupy tent city existed last year.
The occupiers uploaded video of a portion of the march including the
flag burning and eventually the arrest of one individual. According to
police, he was arrested because he did not have a permit for the massive
sound system you can see in the video below. No one was arrested for
