Oakland Police Critically Injure Iraq War Vet During Occupy March

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 26, 2011 6:17 pm

The local police's use of force seriously injured an Occupy activist and Iraq War veteran.

Scott Olsen, 24, remains sedated on a respirator, in stable but critical condition at Oakland’s Highland Hospital after being hit in the head with a police projectile.

Olsen's roommate, Keith Shannon, 24, told The Huffington Post that Olsen is still in the emergency room.

"Right now, he's under sedation," Shannon said. "He walked into the hospital." But soon after his arrival, Shannon said, doctors found that there was swelling in Olsen's brain and put him under. He did not get a chance to talk to his friend. "They are waiting for a neurosurgeon to examine him to see if he needs surgery or not," Shannon said. If he doesn't need an operation, he'll be moved to the intensive care unit.

This pisses me off more than anything how many protestors were hurt elsewhere or killed but no it's always back to using us the vets to make a point.
As for vets returning home to fight the police? Are you serious?
The right uses us, the left uses us at least both sides know who really earned the rights everyone else bloviates about.

It's not that he was a vet it's the fact he was an unarmed protester exercising his right to free speech and assembly

I must have missed that or lost it in how many times vet was being peddled.
To your point all injuries from a peaceful protest should be looked upon as bad and just as sad or horrible or wrong.

Video footage shows Olsen lying prone on the ground in front of police lines. A crowd gathers in an apparent bid to help him, but then scatters when a police officer throws an explosive device into their midst.

He threw a flash bang a concussion grenade, the police use them and we used them when clearing rooms or crowds without the intent to kill or mame.

And now all of my brothersand sisters are putting together a protest at the various ocupy sites with just Marine combat vets. I will keep you posted but needles to say everybody is pretty pissed; especially when the police wouldn't let anybody help him when he was down.

Were starting to get press too, pass this along to any Marine and tell him or her to standby.

This is an absolute disgrace. Force if that nature was not needed for a peaceful demonstration.
My prayers are with Scott and his family.

I received an email earlier today, asking for anyone who wishes to, please place a candle in your window and stand with the ows movement.

I will do it for Scott and his family as well.
