Stay away from Oakland City Center (Broadway between 12th and 14th Streets). Riot police are out in full force, four (4) rounds of tear gas have been fired at people and “vandals” are being arrested at will (KPIX News called them “professional protesters”).
This is some serious shit. I live 2.2 miles away…and whatever they used to fire into the crowd was so loud that I could hear it from behind my house.

bizarre, I’m watching live network streams and I am not seeing any conflicts. streams go down when police use force they come back on but footage away from the scenes.
