Video: Jon Stewart "What the F*ck Happened in Oakland?"

| by Michael Allen

On Wednesday night’s 'Daily Show,' Jon Stewart slammed police in Oakland who used tear gas, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, flashbombs, sound cannons and other violent methods against Occupy Oakland protesters (video below).

Stewart first showed video of peaceful protesters, including families wth children during the day, then he played footage, at night, of protesters running as tear gas filled the streets and explosions went off in the background.

Stewart exclaimed: “What the fuck happened in Oakland? What’s going on, Oakland? Chill out. So, the city was concerned about a public safety threat so they did this. Seems a little heavy handed. Unless, was one of the protesters Godzilla? That would justify an attack.”

“Oh, are you fucking kidding me?” Stewart asked about a person in a wheelchair surround by tear gas. “What do you think, that chair comes on ramming speed? Come on!"
