Networks Cut Police Violence Coverage

Major television networks suddenly cut all coverage of the Occupy Oakland demonstration last Tuesday afternoon just as police in full riot gear began using tear-gas, flash-bang canisters and rubber bullets to disperse the gathering.

TheWeatherSpace.com was the first to report the coincidence.

"This is not usually something TWS reports on but no other 'media' outlet will," the natural disaster news and custom weather forecast office posted on its site, a weather watch and extreme weather alert service.

According to both CBS and ABC news, the helicopters overflying the event had to turn back to station to refuel.

"There was a camera on the ground for a full minute," reported The Weather Space. "Showing exploding canisters, people screaming, and gas being covered everywhere and that was shut off shortly after."

Earlier that morning, police had "raided the Occupy Oakland camp and destroyed everything the occupiers had built," blogger and protester Aaron Bady wrote in his Oakland Local blog
