More than 400 people were arrested in clashes with police after a City Hall march and rally Saturday by Occupy Oakland. On Sunday, Mayor Jean Quan decried the damage and said the demonstrations have cost the budget-strapped city more than $5 million. Meanwhile, protesters criticized police conduct, saying the arrests were illegal and that OPD gave them no option to disperse. We discuss the weekend's developments.
