Marine Veteran Injured by Non-Lethal Rounds at Occupy Oakland

By David Edwards

 

A Marine veteran at Occupy Oakland was injured Monday night after being shot at point-blank range with bean bags or rubber bullets by police.

Scott Olsen was at 14th Street and Broadway when he was shot by either San Francisco Sheriffs deputies or Palo Alto Police, according to RT.

“We need medic!” one protester is heard screaming. “Medic! Medic!”

“What happened?” another asked.

“He got shot!”

As Olsen is carried away, he appears unconscious and bloody, unable to even respond when asked his name.

Olsen is associated with Veterans for Peace.

  1. Unfortunately, Mr Scott has now been used as USG/CIA sponsored cannon fodder at home and not just abroad. See: http://ajmacdonaldjr.wordpress.com/2011/10/27/the-occupy-oakland-riot-and-injuries-otpor-provoked/

  2. A Marine is always a Marine; he is attuned to values of the highest caliber. He is just, fair and above all other values a Marine will always defend his country. A Marine will defend the constitution and its people from all threats. It is in our blood. I will pray for a swift recovery. Semper Fi Devil Dog, Semper Fi

  3. I would be proud to stand with that brother.

  4. Thanks for standing with your fellow Americans Scott and making your voice heard. I hope you’re ok and have a speedy recovery. Give them hell!

  5. Scott is also a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War and has served two tours in Iraq. He is currently in serious condition and is being evaluated by the neurologist to determine if he needs surgery or to be sent to the ICU.

  6. FOR VALOUR
