Update From @jackalanon, 9pm Pacific:
#OccupyOakland Notes for myself but you’ll want to know: I saw use of tear gas three times, the sound canon, bean bags, uncountable amount of flashbangs and rubber bullets being used. I saw 1 kid passed out, a few people bleeding, puking and everyone screaming and crying. I was affected by tear gas was at least 3 times. eyes / skin burning, couldn’t breath due to coughing. And got hit by a bean bag (wish I would’ve kept it). Cops where in full riot gear with shield, gas mask and beaten almost the full time. Moving moments was when a protester threw $$$ at the police line yelling “will you protect us now?” and after the first attack of tear gas we chanted “we’re still here” though our unbelievably burning crying. I was never close enough to see any badge numbers, and although I didn’t see it I herd of quite a few times of people getting hit with the baton.
Tonight started off as a protest, but was turned into a full out war for no reason. The crowd I was with was always peaceful. We yelled, protested, yes, but that is fully in our rights. We are the people to protect, not the people to be denied our rights as citizens of the United States. Our forefathers and our military personal fought hard for these rights, and for what? For us to be suppressed? I think not… it’s our turn to not ask, beg, or vote our rights back, but to take them as they are ours. — @JackalAnon

CNN and other media sources report there have been no injuries, but that appears to be more of the same lies we heard about the protests in NYC. In that case, the media just reported the official statements from police even though there where many videos on you tube showing and claiming injuries suffered.
Police lies reported from MSNBC’s breaking news:
