Our entire street in downtown Oakland is blocked off and the place is swarming with cops. Last night, there was a riot protesting a fatal shooting by a police officer. Right now there's a meeting two buildings down that's open to the public, and police have a lot of the downtown area closed off for when it lets out, as a precaution.

Newsmedia trucks are lined up on the one stretch of street that's still open, and two news helicopters are buzzing around.

It's quite surreal.

I just really hope people don't go around destroying private property again. <Sigh.> So many business owners saw their places get trashed.

Oh, I'm fine here. I'm on the 7th floor and no one can enter the building.

I'm a little concerned about the commute home, though. The train I take stops at the station where the shooting occurred, and there could be another protest there.
