Covering the march in support of medical marijuana on 072412 in Oakland California, as well as crowd surfing the people waiting to see Obama speak at the Fox theater. Includes an interview with occupy activist and veteran Scott Olson.
Very insightful. For a long time I’ve been trying to raise the consciousness about our incremental slide towards a police state. A “patriot act” here, a covert domestic surveillance program there. A “free speech zone” here, a curfew there. Some “enhanced interrogation” here, a summary execution there. A tear gas canister to the head here, a baton to the stomach there. With the crackdown on Occupy, I think we’re finally at the point where the mainstream is starting to connect the dots.
