    Police fired several rounds of tear gas at Occupy Oakland protesters

    Oakland police officers moved in on "Occupy Oakland" in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday, forcing everyone to leave Frank Ogawa Plaza. The raid was violent and chaotic at times, but Oakland Police Chief Howard Joran said he was pleased with the way things went because there were no injuries to the public or his officers. Police in riot gear surrounded the camp at Broadway and 14th Street beginning at 4:30 a.m. Police said they arrested 75 people; most of them for misdemeanor offenses. They said another 100 people were moved out of the area without being arrested.
