zillamod– Godzilla, or Oakland’s ‘Zilla styled government, was seen on last night’s DailyShow for sending in more force than was necessary to clear out #OccupyOakland protestors.  The City of Oakland managed to greenlight the use of tear gas and advanced paramilitary tacticts on citizen participants in local Occupy movement protests.  According to camera footage, the scene was one similar to a riot, with the exceptions of terrified, burning protestors fleeing in all directions.   The Daily Show produced the following segment within hours of news delivery on the use of excessive force on a non-violent protest.
