A surveillance video shows Occupy Oakland protesters breaking into City Hall on Saturday, January 28, 2012. The protesters can be seen using a tool to pry open the door.
Upon entering the building, the protesters begin to litter the floor with garbage. They steal the American flag from the council chamber and set it on fire. Oakland police reported that, aside from breaking into the building with the use of a pry tool, the protesters vandalized office spaces, broke windows and damaged the building. They also tried to activate the fire sprinkler system inside the building and engaged in other acts of vandalism.
