A police officer who was accused of trying to infiltrate the Occupy Oakland movement in a video that went viral, responded online by giving an interview in which he said, "I totally agree with Occupy Wall Street."

As my colleague Malia Wollan reports, "Hundreds of police officers in riot gear circled the Occupy Oakland encampment downtown on Monday morning, making arrests and flattening tents."
