Busted! Occupy Oakland police infiltrators exposed on video.

  • Published on October 30th, 2011

Oakland Police undercover cops exposed! Which leaves the question… how many of the bad eggs who escalated the conflict were also undercover cops? How many of the bottle-throwers, how many of the rock-tossers?

Keeping in mind that just about every Homeland Security bust of terrorists since 9/11 have been entrapment by undercover cops…. And of course, the words of Oakland’s acting Police Chief, Howard Jordan, that you hear on this video:

 “You don’t need to have some special skill to be able to infiltrate these groups. If you put people in there from the beginning, I think we’ll be able to gather the information. And maybe direct them to do something that we want them to do.”

So, for instance, when Occupy Oakland protested at a Chase Bank, who was it that started “vandalizing” the place – Overenthusiastic Occupiers? Or undercover cops trying to make them look bad? (See: Right-wing bloggers freak out as Occupy Oakland storms and “vandalizes” Chase Bank.)

The NYPD pulled that tactic at a Citibank in Manhattan, leading to 22 arrests of Occupy Wall Streeters – one of whom was grabbed outside the bank and arrested by the same undercover cop who had been loud and disruptive during the demonstration. (See: OWS: Disruptive Citibank protester was undercover cop ). And now it looks like they’re funneling drunks and drug dealers down to Zuccotti Park… nice cops.

    Maybe it’s a cop who’s really down for the cause?

    I am a forensic video analyst, though you don’t need to be to realize these are the same people. I doubt the media would report this, it is too conspiratorial most people would dismiss this at face value unless they saw the video.

    Same thing happened during the G20 in Toronto, and in 2007 at a gathering in Montebello, QC (the latter was even admitted to by the SQ [Sûreté du Québec; the Quebec “state” police force] ).

    Seriously!? We’re imagining the police are infiltrating our ranks to discredit the Occupy Oakland movement? I’m glad they are under cover – to help protect us from some on the many anti-non-violent infiltrators who show up at ALL Oakland protests!!

    • While not every instance of violence can be blamed on provocateurs, obviously, to ignore the clear evidence that they’re playing a role is foolish.
