    Police arrested 300 people at Occupy Oakland in California Saturday, after demonstrators broke into City Hall and burned a U.S. flag, following a day of protests that saw officers fire tear gas to disperse rock- and bottle-throwing activists. Police continued to stand guard around City Hall to prevent any more protesters from entering the building, while fencing was torn down at a convention center following the most turbulent day since police raided the Occupy Oakland camp last November. Oakland has vowed to fight protesters if they attempt another large rally. Protesters, meanwhile, are considering suing the police for the tactics that were used.
