From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Councilwoman Pat Kernighan said she will push forward an ordinance banning possession of shields, sticks and other "tools of violence" at demonstrations even though a vitriolic discussion of the issue shut down a public meeting this week.Technorati tags: communism Politics left wing extremists current events socialism crime law legaloccupywallstreet California san francisco oakland
The unruly Public Safety Committee meeting was cut short on Tuesday when Kernighan, who chairs the committee, decided that members of Occupy Oakland threatened the safety of the sole public speaker who supported the ordinance. Kernighan and the speaker left with a police escort.
The man, who identified himself as a 26-year resident of downtown Oakland, had said that protesters' behavior "borders on terrorism." Occupiers then charged him and grabbed his microphone. One man came up to his face and said, "You're not going to make it home."
"That's when I closed the meeting," Kernighan said.
