War has been declared

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

The above is one of the more ludicrous videos I've ever seen posted on YouTube, and that's saying something. As near as I can tell the young fellow who made it worked himself into a lather watching TV reports and following Twitter feeds about the riot that happened when the Oakland police department enforced the closing of the Occupy camp this morning.

To say he went around the bend is an understatement. It starts with the following:
“This is a video message to the Oakland Police Department. You have committed violations of state and federal law. If you continue with your activity, I will personally come to Oakland and arrest every single officer involved. You have committed not only civil rights violations but also criminal acts against the people of the United States. Further continuance of said acts will be a declaration of war. You have 24 hours to respond.”
Hilariously, it gets more ridiculous as he expands upon his rant. My favorite line is when he ominously threatens, "I have a pair of handcuffs and I know how to use them."

Yeesh, talk about writing a check you can't cash. Via Zombie's post Rioting in Downtown Oakland as Occupiers Clash with Police.
