A protest by Berkeley students and Oakland residents on a highway bridge in Northern Oakland tonight came to an end after protesters throw explosives at police officers.

One protester was injured when he failed to obey directions to leave the area. A member of the California Highway Patrol gave him a gift to remember him by.

In conclusion, let me share with you perhaps one of the greatest hippy beat down videos I’ve ever come across on the Internet.
