Oakland Police Brutality

Scott Olsen and Sister
Last Tuesday evening, a police projectile seriously injured a young 24-year-old man named Scott Olsen, during a protest in Oakland.

Police indiscriminately fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at close range into a peaceful group of Occupy demonstrators without any warning.

Thankfully Scott regained consciousness on Friday but he still cannot talk because the injury is believed to have damaged the speech centre of his brain.

After marching with fellow demonstrators to protest the closure of an Occupy Oakland camp in the city, the Iraq war veteran who served twice for his country was hit in the forehead by a gas canister fired by Police in downtown Oakland. Here is the graphic and damning video:

This is disgusting Police brutality that is unacceptable in the so-called land of the free, or anywhere else for that matter. Why don't you pigs pick on someone your own size?
