On Monday night, Occupy Oakland held a 'F*ck the Police' rally. It ended with 6 protesters behind bars and windows broken in a Starbucks coffee shop- one person had an explosive device on them similar to quarter stick of dynamite.
According to Verum Serum:
"Protesters were arrested on suspicion of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and possession of explosives. Police said one person had a device that was the equivalent of a quarter stick of dynamite — not an M-80 firecracker, Watson said, but a six-inch-long explosive.
“I’d never seen anything like it before,” she said. “That’s not something that’ll blow your thumb off; that’s something that could easily kill you or take a body part off."
