Last night I was following along with the #occupyoakland tweets from some folks who were at the protest in Northern California. One attendee—-a journo-cartoonist (yes, that is a thing, yes, it is awesome) I’ve edited in the past named Susie Cagle—-even tweeted as she was being teargassed and later posted a short video:
Funny enough, this morning the Post’s print coverage of the events last night amounted to an AP picture of your friendly local Oakland police officer petting a kitten and a headline which read: “Protesters Wearing Out Their Welcome Nationwide.”
Note: The digital edition coverage is better.
