MAN SHOT DEAD AT OCCUPY OAKLAND PLAZA – Protesters Harass & Block Reporters From Taking Pictures (Video)

The shooting occurred just 30 feet from the Occupy Oakland camp. The fight was reportedly over a bag of weed.

FOX News reported on the shooting. The protesters were harassing the reporters at the crime scene.

A person has been shot outside the Oakland encampment anti-Wall Street protesters have been occupying for the last month.

The shooting happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday on the edge of the plaza outside Oakland City Hill. The Occupy Oakland encampment sits in the middle of the plaza.

Paramedics on the scene were tending the bleeding man, whose condition was not immediately known. Police were interviewing witnesses and trying to contain a crowd of protesters who had tried to prevent television cameramen from taking video.

It also was not immediately known if the victim or his assailants were connected to the protest.

UPDATE: The man was shot dead.

It was the second shooting death at an Occupy camp today and the sixth reported death at an Obama-endorsed Occupy camp.

    If it happened outside of the Occupy Oakland camp, why were Occupiers trying to stop media coverage?

  • Mad Hatter

    Just like Obama and the Alinsky Media said,

    “just like the Tea Party.”

    Uhh huh, sure.

    The U.S. Senate voted 46-52 along partisan lines, shooting down a Republican effort to stop the Federal Communications Commission from regulating the Internet through net neutrality.

    The net neutrality rules will take affect November 20. The White House had promised to veto the Republican legislation if it passed. The fate of net neutrality will now likely be determined in 2012 by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

    Six Democrats and 280 Republicans in the House and Senate voted to overturn net neutrality. Two Republicans, 228 Democrats and one independent voted to uphold it.

    Before the vote, FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell — one of the two dissenting voices on the FCC — told TheDC, ”This used to not be a partisan issue to keep government influence out of the Internet, both in the U.S. and internationally.”

    The rules were passed by the FCC in December 2010 in a highly controversial vote that went against a previous ruling by a D.C. court that said net neutrality regulations were outside the commission’s authority.

    Supporters of the FCC’s rules say the regulatory agency is within its legal jurisdiction to issue the rules as a means to protect tech startups and small businesses from larger companies, thereby, they hope, ensuring the protection of free speech. Opponents say the Internet’s success is due to market forces working free of government intervention.

    Initially the slumdogs tried to keep it in-house by giving help to the victim, using their own medical – experts -in -a- tent and
    stopping the media from taking pics.
    Then in a totally rehearsed fashion, they send out their slumdogs all around ,
    to say that it has nothing to do with occupiers .
    This is very well coordinated and the media is playing along, covering up just the way they are being told .

    Who gives a crap about these losers! Obama is busy signing executive orders up the ying yang and shutting down the airwaves just to see if he can, and these losers are dominating this blog.

    the police chief tried giving a press conference at the site but was drowned out by chanting until he gave up. chances are good that this shooting was more of a drug deal gone bad or the result of an argument between the young, black thugs who make up most of the crowd down there lately (the college crowd has moved to the protest on campus in berkeley) but i don’t know how they can claim that this has nothing to do with the encampment when it took place no more than five steps away from the nearest tent.

    what these obamavilles look like is what all of america will look like if the democratic party has its way. the conditions and behaviors exhibited in these obamavilles is eerily similar to what you see in the democratic party strongholds of inner city america.

    Yes, we see that Joe Biden was absolutely right about the increases in rapes and murders — but, of course, he tried to pawn off blame to the tea party rather than the Obama occupy goonies.

    Here in the Bay Area, as I mentioned on this board last week, the local media was reporting how peaceful Occupy Oakland was during the November 2 General Strike (aka Oakland Under Siege). They did this as I watched, and I’m not joking, spray painting a Whole Food Store, blocking streets/commerce, breaking windows at banks, smashing ATM machines, burning dumpsters, acting like out of control idiots. Oh, but it’s peeeeaceful according to the news. They cannot even be honest about the situation. Other Occupy homeless encampments in the area, and that is mostly what they are, have tried to provoke police and city officials. This is going to happen when, like with radical Islam, you make them out as wonderful people when they are homeless people, anarchists, hippies, bums and thugs. Can you image Nancy Pelosi, the CBC, Maxine Waters, MSNBC, CNN and most of the media if this were the Tea Party. I guarantee it you would be hearing a different tune. Guarantee it. So, what does that tell you/us?

    Now its getting unruly in Berkeley (University of California) and I saw on the news a sign being held up by a protester that read “We want the banks to pay for our tuition.” Have these people lost their mind or are their brains fried on drugs? Keep in mind this area is birth place of The Black Panthers and Van Jones. The Bay Area is a beautiful place, but, many of the people are nuts of which some get into politics, and, get this, get elected. You swear to yourself how can that be, but, I see it all the time.

    Mayor Quan…” Another great day for the protest movement “

    “That’s a dummy,” some woman says. “They’re doing resuscitation on a dummy.”

    I guess she thinks it’s some kind of show just to get them out of the area.
