Scott Olsen, it has come to our attention that you have been critically injured by the Oakland Police Department for standing up for the American peoples' First Amendment Rights. The honor and...

@Qauzzix Of course police have a right to use tear gas after sufficient warning to move back to the park where they have a permit to occupy. Yes, they have a right to protect my business, my family, my streets to get to work. You can't occupy a city street without the majority of Oakland rising up and ordering their police to restore order and put down a angry mob that was hell bent on creating chaos and havoc. I have attended executive Occupy meetings. Obeying the law is not mission.

Not only have the oakland police pissed off a certain group of people.. they have pissed off a group of people who are ...and there is no sugar coating this..trained killers. Not fucking smart. It's not just u.s military personelle thinking about you, Scott , i know for a fact you have a few of us Aussie army lads on your side. Hope you get well soon, bro.

and of itself, is why the American people are angry and protesting. The corruption and lies MUST stop or we are all doomed. If you can't see this fact, then God help you, cause our government sure ain't gonna do it. The acts of violence by the many PO's across the country are uncalled for, and I understand there are rules, but the way the police are handling this is all wrong. The way the government is handling this whole mess is all wrong. If somebody doesn't protest all this rampant corruptio

@Independentsrock - this is called "adding insult to injury". Let the two cops (the one who shot him and the one who threw the cannister) speak for themselves if they have the mettle to come forward. It could have been any of those kids. Do you think they did a background check on him and singled him out? And btw, one of Code Pink's staunchest supporters is ex CIA and Viet Nam vet Ray McGovern. If we had brought the troops home ten years ago, none of this would have happened.

That is SO sad! I haven't gone out to walk with the Occupy people because I'm afraid of getting hurt or arrested. I suppose there are many like me out there that would do it if they knew they would be safe.

You know, I really don't think it matters that Olsen was discharged from the military. It doesn't give police officers the right to hurt people without cause, which seems to happening more frequently. In fact, I think violence solves absolutely nothing and only makes things worse. You'd think that after 2000+ years on this planet, human beings would have figured this out by now. But, alas, this world is still overrun by closed-minded idiots that think violence is the only way to solve problems

You're wrong. Protesters marched on the streets in violation of their permit to occupy the park. Protesters taunted the police and threw water and paint on the police as well as rocks and bottles. Do your homework. Look up unlawful assembly on Wikipedia, then take two aspirin.

Oh, and by the way, I know two people who served in Iraq, and they both tell me that things are not what they seem over there. The media and our government is telling us lies about why we are in Iraq. That's no big secret. What upsets me is the staggering amount of military personnel who have said less than great things about our 'oh-so-wonderful' military. Corruption abounds in this country and there is no faction of government that hasn't been touched by it, military included. THAT reason, in

Just because tear gas, flash bangs, rubber bullets, beanbag shots are listed as non lethal does not give the police the right to use them without any form of restraint. I find their lack of concern for citizens of this country. Who pay their salaries. They r supposed to protect and serve us disgusting. What I have seen are similar to those of Egypt before they started using live ammo to mow down unarmed people earlier this year. This is not how a free country acts. This is how a tyranny acts.

@ItsAlmostTime1 Thanks. I found it. I'm subscribed to Adam but missed that one. YT doesn't post all recent activity. Censorship. The most well meaning movements are always infiltrated. But, there is power in the unknown and the unpredicitable. Not even they really know how it will play out though they think they may be the Directors. I believe intention has great power. They know this. That is why they try to keep us in fear. Changes the outcome in their direction. No fear, good intentions.

The media keeps trying to characterize these protests as violent. But it seems to me the only violence is coming from police onto the protesters. If Occupy was a violent movement, there would be blood lining the streets with the numbers they have. But, they are the victims here and the police reinforce that victimization.

@bammbamm12 How so? This has nothing to do with the cops or anyone else who was throwing bottles who may have hit cops or fellow protesters. Scott Olsen, injured while failing to obey warnings by police that tear gas was about to be used to disperse a riot in Oakland, says he hates the Marines and hates Jews. No wonder the lefties love this guy. Do a search on the guy and see for yourself and read his rants.

@sole21000 Just doing your job is no excuse for acting like a fascist jackboot. They should join the 100 NYPD cops and refuse to do anything with the protests. If they are not part of the solution, then they are part of the problem. There will be no violence if they would stop using violence agaisnt the people of America. They have control of that. If they keep perpetrating acts of violence against protesters, you are right, people will eventually snap and violence will erupt.

I am a daughter of two veterans, ive seen how hard people of the military work serving their country-despite the bad behavior of the government.Military folks join because they love their country, not necessarily their government. This is offensive on so many levels. For police to treat their own citizens this way is nothing short of treason against those they are sworn to protect. Thank you, Scott. The thoughts and prayers of thousands are with you and yours.

@superlativeOFgood The only domestic threat are these stupid protesters who can't even agree among themselves what they are doing marching down city streets without a permit to do so, throwing crap at the cops trying to keep the city orderly. I stand with the millions of vets who are disgusted by Olsen standing there refusing to obey the police to move back or tear gas was going to be used. I think Olsen must have been on drugs to stand there like a complete and utter idiot.

@puppynut5 What about my First Amendment right to speak? Oh, I see how this works.... Rock and bottles were thrown at police and have been documented. On this evening, paint and water was reported to be thrown. Look dumb ass, try that next time you are one on one with a police officer on a street corner and do not call me to bail your ignorant ass out of jail, because the 99% of the city will be insisting you stay there for as long as it takes to understand such conduct is not acceptable.

OUTRAGE My heart is bleading for this poor boy. What has happenned to this country to inflict such treatment on our children ? To top it off it was as completly unjustified as the KENT STATE MASSACRE in PROTEST AGAINST VIETNAM WAR .My First Cousin, ALISON KRAUSE was MURDERED BY POLICE at KENT STATE having caught a stray bullet. That was bad enough, but to now have the police murder peaceful protesters from close range when in no danger to themselves IS UNACEPTABLE and needs to be STOPPED.

@sdjxb As any good officer should be. The intelligent among us know that there are a lot of good cops who are just doing their job and not trying to hurt people maliciously, and it's just the bad apples that need to be called out and punished. Unfortunately, I'm afraid of everyone else turning OWS into an anti-institution movement and taking the fight to the police. We're close, but if we start using violence we'll have lost.

corruption, who will? Are we to just lie down like sheep and get ass raped by those in authority? Last I checked, America was supposed to be a 'free' country, but if we keep letting this corruption go on, sooner or later we won't have any rights left. A tyrannical government doesn't have to be run by just one person... It can be run by many corrupt people, and that seems to be the case here. How far away are we from a tyrannical government? Not that far, by the look of things.

Look pal. Do some basic high school research. The freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, and freedom to assemble have limits unless you're a second grader. People do not have a right to assemble in such numbers as violate the rights of others without permission and other requirements in this country and many others. You must often provide your own security, provide your own toilets, and your own condoms... People have no right to squat for days on public property violating local laws.

@Xavienne And you don't disobey police and rush in to help Olsen when he doesn't need your frigging help. Are you a licensed paramedic? Do you have the proper training? The paramedics were right there to help but first they had to get the morons out of the way who don't apparently understand basic English and think they can do whatever they please whenever they want. What kind of parents raised these idiots? This movement is a complete and utter joke and 99% of us see it for what it is.

If anyone was there and noticed them trying to help, please correct me. Also, the internet is full of trojans and bugs re OWS; be careful.
