Susie Cagle, Cartoonist, Tear Gassed And Arrested While Covering Occupy Oakland

Posted: Updated:

International attention has fallen on the campsite of Occupy Oakland in the wake of tear-gassing raids and mass arrests by police trying to clear protestors from the site, as well as the hospitalization of Marine and Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen who suffered brain damage when his skull was fractured by a police projectile. Cartoonist Susie Cagle has a unique perspective on the events in Oakland not only because she is documenting the protests as press, but because she was both tear gassed and arrested by police while covering the event. Cagle told ComicsAlliance why she got involved, why she is concerned about the violence and legality of the police responses, and shared original sketches of the camp as well as her personal videos of being tear gassed and arrested.
