  •  Out-of-town cops were using force (3+ / 0-)

    It appears that the Palo Alto cops were firing tear gas at people:

    Apple said that CS (tear) gas canisters were used by Palo Alto police during the protest in response to demonstrators who were throwing objects at police. The Palo Alto Police Department uses CS canisters that are deployed by hand, Apple said. The canisters do not explode but rather burn CS gas internally and then emit smoke.

    I don't claim to know which police forces were firing rubber bullets, but the reality is that cops from all over the place were involved in the use of force in Oakland.
