Protests, anger in Oakland
Car Burning From Rioting in Oakland, 01/07/2009
01/07/2009 - (21:00) P.S.T.
A car burns in my neighborhood, in the wake of angry protests turned to rioting on the streets of Oakland this evening. The New Year's Eve shooting of Oscar Grant a week ago, by (now former) BART Police officer Johannes Mehserle, was caught on video by numerous sources and helped fan the flames of an outraged public--so tonight some people torched my neighbor's car.
This video was shot from my apartment building.
