"For What It's Worth"

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking' their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?


What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Police made arrests as demonstrators marched in downtown Oakland to against the city's new get-tough policy for monitoring street protests — the second such gathering in as many days.

Officers watched closely Sunday night as the protesters marched several blocks starting at Frank Ogawa Plaza.
Spokeswoman Johnna A. Watson said about 100-150 marched before organizers ended the event, and then a group of 15-20 started another protest.
She said there were no reports of injury or vandalism Sunday, but four people were arrested and another 19 received citations.
A night earlier dozens of protesters were arrested or cited for ignoring police orders to disband their protest.
The Oakland Tribune reported Sunday that police cited a new policy by the city's mayor to force protesters from the street to the sidewalk after Oakland experienced several violent demonstrations in the past year. Oakland has hosted rallies in the streets for years, but the mayor said the new policy is needed to combat damage to property and violence.
Mayor Libby Schaaf said earlier that existing policies and laws allows police to clear streets of protesters. Many businesses along the city's automobile sales district were badly damaged by protesters who broke away from the main demonstration on May 1. Businesses also sustained heavy damage during protests arising from the deaths of unarmed black men in police custody in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere over the last two years.
Tensions rose anew in Oakland on Thursday when protesters marched in honor of black women killed by police across the nation. But organizers said they were surprised when police pushed them off the streets and onto the sidewalks, citing the mayor's new policy. No one was arrested Thursday.
Organizers then called for another protest Saturday to demonstrate against the new policy.
"You can't run roughshod over people because they're protesting your oppression," said Cat Brooks, an organizer of both protests. "You can't push us off the streets."
Further protests over the new policy are planned, Brooks said.
Rachel Lederman, a lawyer with the National Lawyers Guild who helped Oakland craft its crowd-control policies, said the new tactics appear to violate the guidelines.
"It doesn't make any sense because saying that marches have to be on the sidewalk has absolutely no relationship to impending property damage that might occur," Lederman said. "Obviously that would happen on a sidewalk, not a street."

I think keeping on sidewalks would impend property damage which is done by a few who need space to do that. When everyone is in the street, that leaves plenty of room outside the line of protectors and people caught up in the excitement can easily go the side and smash things up. This behavior is equal to the fighting and damage that can follow a ball game. It is mob psychology the major has to work with because it is his or her job to protect life and property.
