Another life was snuffed out today thanks to the Democrat-endorsed Occupy movement. This one happened in Oakland.
Here’s an eyewitness account from Aimee Allison at SFGate.com:
At about 4:45pm Thursday evening, a crowd of thirty surrounded a man apparently shot in the leg at Frank Ogawa Plaza. He appeared unconscious when I arrived at the scene, a full ten minutes before the police and ambulance arrived. Women were screaming, and many in the crowd were moaning from the unexpected traumatic event. Several were shouting, “no pictures” and linking arms around the injured young man.
A man in the crowd attacked me when I attempted to take a photo and he threw the cell phone camera some 20 feet away. Another in the crowd returned the phone.
A few feet away a TV cameraman was shooting footage and a crowd of twenty or so men attacked and punched him, forcing him over the railing of the 14th Street BART Station.
The occupy encampments are increasingly becoming unsafe places for the media as well. Update: here is a photo of the cameraman being attacked.
