"Overall I have to give credit to the Oakland PD for the way that they handled this very dangerous situation. I was impressed with their professionalism and how well they managed to prevent the crowd from turning into a much bigger riot than it was. It was a very tough night to be a cop in Oakland and you could tell from their own facial expressions that they were under a tremendous amount of stress maintaining the peace."
As Hawk writes, police backed into a woman on the street. A photographer he was shooting with, Keoki Seu, files this picture and reports:
This woman was apparently hit by the police car after the mob attacked the car and the car had to retreat. I did not see what happened to her, but I did see someone throw something at the police car which caused them to retreat. The woman was deaf, and her ankle looked beat up. The police would not call paramedics to get help for her.
