Oakland Mayor Quan Praises Occupy Oakland Protesters After Riots Cost City $1 Million (Video)

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan praised the Occupy Oakland protesters after riots on Wednesday night. The violent radicals smashed windows in several businesses and banks, shut down the port, blocked traffic and attacked and wounded police officers.
Mayor Quan commended the 99% movement, via The O’Reilly Factor:

“The highway patrol and other forces came and ensured that it was peaceful tonight. We will act if we need to tonight to maintain safety. But it looks like this was a good day for the demonstrators and for the 99% movement.”

Yup. It was a peaceful night. A lovely night.

For the record… The violent #Occupy Oakland protests on Wednesday cost the city at least $1 million.
