    She now supports OWS. Typical leftist coward:

    Oakland Mayor Jean Quon Reverses Course. She Now Supports Occupy Oakland and Plans to Minimize Police Presence.

    We support the goals of the Occupy Wall Street movement: we have high levels of unemployment and we have high levels of foreclosure that makes Oakland part of the 99% too. We are a progressive city and tolerant of many opinions. We may not always agree, but we all have a right to be heard.

    I want to thank everyone for the peaceful demonstration at Frank Ogawa Park tonight, and thank the city employees who worked hard to clean up the plaza so that all activities can continue including Occupy Wall Street. We have decided to have a minimal police presence at the plaza for the short term and build a community effort to improve communications and dialogue with the demonstrators.



    I want to express our deepest concern for all of those who were injured last night, and we are committed to ensuring this does not happen again. Investigations of certain incidents are underway and I will personally monitor them.

    We understand and recognize the impact this event has had on the community and acknowledge what has happened. We cannot change the past, but we are committed to doing better.http://tucsoncitizen.com/dataport/20...lice-presence/

    She originally supported them. The move to oust them was a surprise.

    Not surprising.

    She throws the local military people under the bus regularly.
    Police for the weekly protest she attends.

    She is a socialist along with most in her district.

    Quon doesn't exactly support everything. The mobs of parroting toddlers in Oakland last night decided not to let Quon speak. (Sort of like what they did in Atlanta with John Lewis.)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYuCGdIPBM0

    Quon posted a video in response later:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__xT2OO1Y_o

    She tells them point blank that they cannot protest at night. (Go to 3:12 on the video)

    The video is conciliatory, but she mentions how cash-strapped the city is--like these toddlers care. I feel badly for the woman. Major PR disaster when she was only trying to do what the local residents and businesses probably wanted her to do: get these dirty assholes away from their homes and businesses.

    again, one has to ask the question, what the hell is there to protest against in Oakland?
