Bracing for a Demonstration/Riot

Posted by berkeleyscot on January 15, 2009

I saw my Dentist yesterday to check that no teeth had been damaged in the fall.

Over the years, all my falls resulted in broken teeth, but today was reassured that choosing to break my arm saved my teeth.

We drove home from Alameda through downtown Oakland.  Broadway had police barricades and traffic was being diverted, but slowly and with little energy from the Police.

I guessed the City was preparing for a night of Demonstration/Rioting, but there was no information.

I suppose we should have known. Those in Oakland did not forget Oscar Grant and BART Police Officer Johannes Mehersle.

My own brace is now off!
