Jon Stewart: Unless Godzilla Himself Was Out There, the Oakland PD's Use of Violence Was Way Out of Line
Last night Jon Stewart took on the Oakland Police Department's over-the-top use of violence against peaceful Occupy Oakland protesters. As Stewart noted, "They were concerned about a public safety threat, so they did this? [cue footage of tear gas clouds and exploding stun grenades]." He then showed images of some of the "ruffians" who the police were targeting: a teenage boy, a middle-aged college professor type, and a person in a wheelchair.
