MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell interviewed this apparently random Occupy Oakland protester last night, obviously hoping she would provide him with a first-hand account of blatant police brutality.
Instead, she gave him a big fat nothingburger.
O’Donnell asked her if the protesters were aware that the police would use tear gas on them if they didn’t disperse. Her answer: “Yes.” He then asked if the protesters did, in fact, throw bottles and rocks at the police anyway even after this warning. Her answer again: “Yes.”
A Kent State moment this most certainly was not. Nice try though, LarryO.
