At least one person was injured and police made nine arrests when a protest over George Zimmerman's acquittal turned violent in Oakland. Newspapers report that a waiter guarding windows at a restaurant was hit in the face with a hammer late Monday night, and protesters threw fireworks at police in riot gear who deployed flash-bang grenades to try to control the crowd.
