way. only 24 hours later to see the mayor of that city, in this case, oakland, say, it is okay, come on back. what are they thinking tonight? >> reporter: i can tell you this. the city of oakland will only address one thing, and that is that mutual aid, the cost of it will be reimbursed by the state. as far as what those individual cities will do in the event oakland needs mutual aid again no one is talking about if they will show their support tonight. >> thank you, robert. one last thing about michael moore, he took a swipe at another bay area city. >> walnut creek is where we need to be. isn't that where the money is? all right. >> meanwhile in san jose occupy
