MC Hammer took to Twitter on Wednesday (October 26) morning to join the thousands that now accuse Oakland police officers of abuse due to their tactics in dealing with Occupy Oakland protesters.

The protesters, Oakland, California's version of the Occupy Wall Street anti-greed protesters, were met with tear gas and rubber bullets on Wednesday. Dozens were arrested at what has been described by many as an otherwise peaceful protest.

The unabated abuse of the PEOPLE can never be tolerated !!! They were expressing systemic frustration and pain, peacefully. #OOAK

You knew this would happen. You cannot eliminate the middle class and expect quiet resolution. #occupyoakland
