FILE - In this May 1, 2012 file photo, Oakland police officers guard a Bank of America branch during May Day protests in Oakland, Calif. The chaotic scene recalls several earlier clashes between Occupy protesters and Oakland police. The city of Oakland took a big risk this year when it decided to borrow nearly $213 million to cover pensions owed to its retired police and firefighters. Rather than laying off more staff or reducing library services, leaders in this Northern California port city are betting that the stock market will improve.(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, file)
