Iraq War Vet Criticaly Injured at Occupy Oakland Demonstration

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Lance Corporal Scott Olsen made it home after two tours of duty in Iraq, but was critically injured two days ago at the hands of the Oakland Police Department when what looks like a tear gas cannister was fired at his head from close range.

This is shocking enough, what watch what happens when fellow protestors try to come to his aid and officers shoot another cannister into the crowd of people trying to assist the wounded veteran.

Shameful.
