Video: Riot police at Mehserle protests in Oakland

More than 80 were arrested as demonstrations turned violent after Mehserle verdict

By PoliceOne Staff

OAKLAND, Calif. — After ex-BART cop Johannes Mehserle was found guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter, demonstrations and protests began in downtown Oakland.

Riot police lined up in the street and declared the gathering to be an unlawful assembly.

They warned that those who did not immediatley leave could be arrested or subject to other police action, including the use of force.

The videos below were taken by people on the streets of Oakland in the hours after the verdict was read.

 

What started off as a mostly peaceful demonstration became increasingly rowdy as the night wore on.

 

More than 80 people were arrested throughout the night.

 

Several dumpsters were set on fire as well.
