Iraq war vet injured by Oakland Police
A military veteran who was twice deployed to Iraq is in critical condition with a cracked skull and brain swelling following an assault by Oakland Police against Occupy Oakland protestors.
Scott Olsen was hit by a police projectile as Oakland PD moved to disperse the crowd. When fellow protestors ran to his aid they were targeted by another flash-bang police device.
Two tours in Iraq to “protect our freedoms.” Now Olsen is in critical condition for exercising those freedoms.
