Oakland has emerged as the focal point of the international Occupy movement due to violent clashes between protesters and police last week, and the injury of 24-year-old Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen. Meanwhile, San Francisco's tent city remains, and is growing. We get an update on the Occupy protests in the Bay Area and across the country, and discuss the local and national political implications of the movement.
