The Associated Press: Oakland police slam mayor over Occupy protests

The Associated Press: Oakland police slam mayor over Occupy protests: " The Oakland, Calif. police union on Tuesday slammed the mayor for her stance on the city's Occupy Wall Street protests, further testing the embattled leader's administration a day before demonstrators planned a general strike.
The Oakland Police Officer's Association sent a letter to Mayor Jean Quan questioning why the city plans to beef up its police presence at strike-related events while giving other city workers leeway to participate.
"Is it the City's intention to have City employees on both sides of a skirmish line?" the letter said.
City offices are to remain open Wednesday. Quan's office urged businesses not to close. Protesters are planning several large gatherings in downtown Oakland throughout the day, culminating with a march to the Port of Oakland in early evening.
Protesters say they are heading to the port — one of the country's largest — to block "the flow of capital.""
